ACTION

Tell the FDA to stop recommending tobacco companies test on animals! We’re calling this our No Butts About It campaign—this play on words is intended to show the absurdity of the situation. No animal should ever come near a cigarette butt, let alone inhale smoke all day.

INFORMATION / TALKING POINTS

Animals could be forced to “smoke” in terrible tobacco experiments. And our own government is allowing it—actually recommending it!

In this day and age, it is very clear that tobacco is bad for human health. But until the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) makes drastic changes, rats and mice and even monkeys could be subjected to experiments that force it to inhale smoke for hours at a time.

This is a big deal. And PCRM cannot with good conscience stand by and watch this happen. If you feel the same, then sign our petition to the FDA today. Ask them to stop recommending tobacco companies test on animals!

We’re calling this our No Butts About It campaign—this play on words is intended to show the absurdity of the situation. No animal should ever come near a cigarette butt, let alone inhale smoke all day.

I hope we can count on all PCRM supporters—animal lovers like you, Veda—to help us stop these outrageous experiments. Let’s continue to work so we can save more animal lives! 


Thank you for everything you do for animals!
