A Parliamentary petition put forward by Peter Egan to end all animal experiments:-
Experiments on dogs, primates & other animals are today widely reported to be entirely failing the search for human treatments & cures. The Gov. must recognise this evidence, ban these cruel animal experiments & redirect all Gov. funding to human-based methods, such as gene-based medicine.
The 1986 Animals (Scientific Procedures) Act & its 1959 3Rs laws have been surpassed by the 2003 Human Genome Project & Trans-Species Modelling Theory, explaining why animal experiments have a widely reported 90% failure rate, in human trials. The Gov. must recognise the life & death consequences of continuing to fund animal-based research for humans; that we have entered the era of personalised medicine & immediately ban all animal tests, to free up funding for relevant human-based studies.
