5 Ways PETA Is Helping Animals in Laboratories This Week

  1. A powerful new page breaking down the National Institutes of Health’s wastefulness and animal abuse by the numbers makes it clearer than ever why all U.S. government agencies should ditch failed animal tests.
  2. Here’s a victory for transparency, accountability, and animals of all species: After a PETA request, the U.S. Department of Agriculture has denied Emory University’s attempts to have animal welfare citations of the school’s laboratories scrubbed from its record.
  3. We’re challenging Eli Lilly’s impotent leadership with a new campaign calling out the Cialis maker for failing to ban the cruel, thoroughly debunked forced swim test.
  4. The University of Bristol’s student newspaper ran a wonderful piece quoting PETA U.K. Science Policy Adviser Dr. Julia Baines, renewing the call for that institution to ban the forced swim test, too.
  5. In the wake of news that a human patient died after his heart was replaced with that of a genetically altered pig, Baines penned a thought-provoking opinion piece breaking down the health risks and unconscionable cruelty of treating animals like organ factories.
