Ask your Member of Congress to End Chimpanzee Experiments

Please send the e-mail below that asks your members of Congress to support the Great Ape Protection and Cost Savings Act. This important legislation will end the use of chimpanzees in invasive experiments, permanently end federal breeding programs, and release federally-owned chimpanzees to permanent sanctuaries. We have provided text for you, but if you decide to write your own message, please be polite and encouraging. Here are some talking points:

  • The Great Ape Protection and Cost Savings Act is a bipartisan bill that makes sense— ethically, scientifically, and financially.
  • Chimpanzees in laboratories suffer similarly to human victims of trauma and it is unethical to continue to use them in experiments.
  • Only 20 percent of chimpanzees in laboratories are used in research while the others are warehoused at taxpayer expense.
  • Research funding would be better spent on superior modern testing methods, such as ethical, human-centered studies, mathematical modeling, and in vitro testing.
