ACTION

Please call your members of Congress during National Call-In Week and ask them to co-sponsor the Great Ape Protection and Cost Savings Act (S. 810/H.R. 1513), which will end painful experiments on chimpanzees.

And/or better yet, make direct contact:

Contact your U.S. Senators
http://www.senate.gov/ 

Contact your U.S. Representative
http://www.house.gov/

INFORMATION / TALKING POINTS

All you need to say is, "I'd like [senator/representative] to co-sponsor the Great Ape Protection and Cost Savings Act (S. 810/H.R. 1513). I think experimenting on chimpanzees is both unethical and a wasteful use of taxpayer money. This bill will prevent animal suffering, while saving us $300 million over 10 years." For other talking points, check out the column by Prof. Brian Hare (see next article below).

Join our fight to end the unethical and ineffective use of chimpanzees in experimentation. Your members of Congress need to know that you care about this issue.
