Tell Congress: Do NOT Restrict Future Primate Research!
The People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) have recently partnered with Sen. Booker to introduce legislation which would limit the use of non-human primates (NHPs) in biomedical research in the United States. This legislation was introduced at the very end of the 115th Congress, and is likely to be re-introduced now that the 116th Congress is in session. The truth is that animal models are critical to the development of medicines and treatments for pets, wildlife, and humans. Among those models, non-human primates are among the most important due to their genetic similarity with humans. In fact, these models are directly responsible for major medical breakthroughs, many of them likely pioneered by research facilities in your very districts.

Legislation like the S.3773, Primate Protection and Research Modernization Act, while well-meaning, are dangerously misguided and counter to basic science. The truth is, if you love animals, you should support animal research. No one in the world conducts biomedical research better nor more humanely than the United States. Congress should not push legislation that would drive this research elsewhere, to places that do not care deeply about humane treatment of animals like American researchers do.

If you are in the research community or a research supporter, your action is needed now! Contact your U.S. Representatives and Senators encouraging them to oppose this misguided legislation, or any other arbitrary restrictions on non-human primate research.
