TO: All People Who Care
I am a private individual posting this message to help
Laboratory Animals and us all. I apologize if this seems
out of place in this group but I think you need to know
A new European Chemical Testing Policy called
REACH has now been finalised by the European
Union. Under these proposals Chemicals of every
kind - from those used in industrial processes to the
ingredients of consumer products - will be tested on
Millions of animals from mice to fish to dogs, causing
Still worse, because of this reliance on outdated animal
techniques, reliable and relevant information will not be
provided and our safety will not be assured.
If you believe that REACH should make more use of
Alternative Testing to test 1000s of Chemicals that
have been in general use since before 1985 then
please take action now.
If you are a European citizen please contact your local
papers and own MEP asking them to promote the
development of humane non-animal testing methods
under the REACH legislation, which is the best hope
we have for sparing animals the misery of a testing
A sample letter can be found at the BUAV (British
Union for the Abolition of Vivisection) website at

Get Active then Writing to the local press).
For all Non-European members, you can still help.
Please tell all your colleagues and friends in the UK
and Europe about REACH. Write to your own local
papers to try and inform others about what is going
on in Europe.
The website for the European Parliament is
Information on REACH, the New European Chemical
Testing Policy can be found here.
Everyone can help and you can make a difference.
Dumbass... Was: Europe Tests Established Chemicals on Millions of Animals
What? If I don't agree with you I don't care?
There is a hierarchy of life on this planet. At the present time we
are at the top of that list. Being at the top means that we get to do
things the creatures under us don't get to do,. One of these things
is to use them to lengthen our stay at the top.
If a few pigs have to wear makeup, or a monkey or two has to get
hooked on some drug to see what happens, then their death was as
useful to us as that bull that got the electric prod up its ass to
kill it. (And make a mighty fine tasting NY Strip Steak at Long
This is completely off topic and no, we don't NEED to know this. It is
bogus BS from a whiny little shit that has nothing better to do with
his time than to worry about how a company might use some chemical on
a freeking fish.
And there is not a single redeeming reason for this testing at all?
The results of this testing will never benefit humans in their
struggle against desiese, poverty, or illness?
See now you are making shit up. Companies don't stay in business if
they don't produce a profit. In the case of animal testing, if they
do not come up with something that makes them money, like a new drug,
or a new medical procedure, (or even animal snuff films I guess), then
they go out of business. So they are NOT relying on outdated animal
techniques, and reliable/relevant material will be provided, or the
animal testing will stop because the company will go out of
So the best thing you can do is to let them continue with what they
are doing. If you are right, then they will go out of business and
the testing will stop. That means that your spam campaign is actually
causing more harm than good. And more animal will now die. Thanks a
lot Bambi killer.
Continued testing of already established drugs is needed to help study
long term side effects, overdose issues, shelf life etc. They don't
go around killing animals because it is fun. And they don't have a
section in the budget for wasted research. They are performing the
tests because they need to be performed. You (being a lemming and
blindly following other idiots) don't look at the whole picture and
the result is some stupid spam you think will "save the poor
No thanks, I vote to keep humans at the top.
You are not helping. Take some time and do a little research and see
what is really going on. Then the next time someone's life is saved or
made better because a fish had to die maybe you will wake up.
If you REALLY wanted to make a difference you would join the local
humane society and get people to neuter or spade their pets. You will
save more animals from pain suffering and death by volunteering at the
humane Society than your silly spam will ever save.
