U.S. CapitolCall Today: Ask Your Senators to Limit Animal Testing

Please take a moment to call your senators and respectfully urge them to support the Frank R. Lautenberg Chemical Safety for the 21st Century Act (S. 697) to reduce and replace animals in chemical tests with human-relevant nonanimal methods. Please be polite and encouraging. Use the following talking points as a guide:

  • I am calling as a constituent to urge you to support restrictions on animal testing as outlined in the Frank R. Lautenberg Chemical Safety for the 21st Century Act (S. 697), introduced by Sens. Tom Udall and David Vitter.
  • The bill contains many provisions that will more accurately protect the public health and reduce and replace animals in chemical tests.
  • Using quick and human-relevant in vitro tests recommended by the National Academy of Sciences is a more effective way to protect public health and the environment.
  • The bill requires the EPA to fund the development and use of nonanimal methods, which will improve public health.

If you already co-sponsor the bill, thank you! S. 697 will protect the public health by moving away from unreliable animal tests. We hope you will support the bill when it goes to the Senate floor.
