Call time on animal experiments!

Animal testing is cruel and outdated, and yet approximately THREE MILLION animals are still used in ‘animal research’ every year in the UK.

More government investment is needed in transformative technologies such as Non-Animal Methods which could replace current regulatory animal testing. These modern non-animal scientific approaches are often quicker, cheaper, more humane and more accurate!

The current awful COVID-19 crisis has revealed how long and expensive the current research process is. It has clarified that a new government timeframe – a deadline – is needed to end the use of animals in experiments in the UK.

With such a deadline in place, the UK could invest and focus its scientific research in being a leader in modern human-focused science.

Let’s make the UK a leader in high tech non-animal research and call time on animal testing!
  • it is barbaric, and outdated in the 21st century. The human race has no more right to this planet than any other life form, and has no right to abuse and torture other species. Shirley W 25.09.2021 19:32
  • It is immensely cruel, these sentient animals, rodents etc are denied all their instinctive behaviours resulting in them suffering a miserable existence. They are subjected to painful procedures causing extreme distress during unnecessary testing. It is long past time to ban these outdated tests/experiments on all animals and utilise humane, non animal methods instead. Gail B 25.09.2021 18:22
  • Animal testing has been scientifically proven not to work - the results expected from the horrific tests carried out on these innocent animals do not relate to the effects expected on humans. As a result the archaic practices should stop! Furthermore, any product or associated product that has connection to animal experiments have no place in our household or a continuous growing number of households either! Want a to buy your products? Then stop experimenting needlessly on animals then! Robert D 25.09.2021 17:56
  • It's barbaric, incredibly cruel, flawed and has no place in the 21st Century. We need research that causes no harm to animals and that's more relevant to humans, like "organ on a chip and computer modelling for example. Mary B 25.09.2021 17:53
  • Animal testing is hugely unreliable with over 95% of successful tests failing human trials. This barbaric and prehistoric practice must come to an end. There are many far more effective scientific methods which do not involve unnecessary animal torture. It's 2021; we need to do better. Jessica W 25.09.2021 17:37
  • It is cruel and barbaric and totally unnecessary. Animal testing gives misleading results. Modern technology should be used, not sentient beings. Karen W 25.09.2021 12:26
