Join PCRM supporters in signing a petition that asks Senators John McCain and Barack Obama to tell us where they stand on an issue that is very important—the fact that the Food and Drug Administration does not mandate the use of proven alternatives to animal testing by companies applying for approval for their products. We ask that you sign our petition and urge your friends and family to sign, too. Help us motivate both candidates to address this issue on a national level.

Full petition of text:

Citizens who care about the health and welfare of people and animals would like to know your position on whether the Food and Drug Administration should follow the example set by its counterparts in the European Union and mandate the use of scientifically proven alternatives to animal testing by companies submitting their products for approval. Please address this issue on your campaign Web site and when talking to the American people.

Please note that federal law requires that PCRM must be strictly non-partisan. PCRM neither supports nor opposes any candidate for any elective office.
