I strongly urge you to do everything in your power to require that animal testing of drugs and devices is replaced by humane and effective nonanimal methods. As you know, proven and less expensive alternatives to animal testing exist and are widely used in Europe. Yet, under U.S. law, countless animals are tortured and killed each year when clear evidence exists that such tests are not predictive of human outcomes. As a PCRM member, I urge you to say no to animal cruelty in 2011!
