This is an historic moment. The U.S. House of Representatives is set to vote tomorrow June 7 on the FDA Modernization Act as a rider to the Food and Drug Amendments of 2022.
Please call the U.S. Capitol switchboard at (202) 224-3121 and ask your U.S. Representative to vote “yes” on H.R. 7667, a legislative package that includes the FDA Modernization Act of 2021 as a rider.
This important rider will eliminate the FDA’s animal testing requirement and include non-animal methods to the list of acceptable test methods in drug development.
Also this week, the Senate is set to take up a parallel measure. Last week, the Senate HELP Committee introduced the Food and Drug Administration Safety and Landmark Advancements Act of 2022, which includes a similar FDA Modernization Act provision. The committee votes on the same issue this week!
Allowing scientists to use more accurate human-based methods will spare intense suffering for many thousands of dogs, monkeys, mice, rabbits and other animals, while enhancing safety and lowering the costs of drug treatments that are urgently needed.
Passing the FDA Modernization Act will be a monumental change to an archaic law mandating animal testing when we have the technology to replace animals.
Thank you for taking action today to let your legislators know you want the FDA to modernize their outmoded and unreliable animal testing requirements.
