Goal: 30,000 Progress: 28,190
Sponsored by: The Animal Rescue Site

With new forms of medical technology and research techniques evolving at a rapid pace, there is simply no reason to continue using primates for invasive biomedical research. That's why Maryland Representative Roscoe Bartlett introduced the Great Ape Protection and Cost Savings Act — a bill that would prohibit the use of chimpanzees for invasive studies and testing.

Working with the Humane Society of the United States and the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine, Representative Bartlett found that saving the chimpanzees would also save taxpayers tens of millions of dollars per year since they would no longer have to be kept in warehouses awaiting research trials.

The chimps would be transferred to a primate sanctuary where they'd be free from cruel testing and able to live out their lives peacefully.

Speak out for chimpanzees and sign the petition supporting the Great Ape Protection and Cost Savings Act!

Dear Representative Bartlett,

I am writing to express my full support of your sponsorship of the Great Ape Protection and Cost Savings Act. You have taken a significant step toward protecting chimpanzees from being injured or killed during biomedical research trials.

The fact is, with all of the advancements that have been made in the medical research industry, there is simply no reason to continue using chimpanzees for medical studies. Not only does medical research cause great harm to the animals, keeping them housed in warehouses ready for testing costs taxpayers millions of dollars per year.

Recently you said, "There's just no valid argument to continue to keep these great apes as they're now being kept," — and you're right. Between 80 and 90 percent of these animals aren't even being used in active research.

It is imperative that we lead the charge in protecting these great apes, especially since there is technologically no sound reason to keep them around for research purposes.

Please see that the Great Ape Protection and Cost Savings Act passes so that our chimpanzees are saved from any further suffering and we from unnecessary spending!

Sincerely yours,

Petition Signatures

Mar 24, 2015 Nancy Trottier It is a disgrace that anyone would "use" animals in research. For many years, there have been more reliable methods. This is equivalent to the horrific deeds of Joseph Mengele and must stop, now!

Mar 23, 2015 Anne Jenkins Animals are not needed for medical research. The past has proved products tested on animals do not give the same results as they do on humans. Animal tests are unnecessary, cruel and totally outdated in the 21st Century.
