Dear PCRM supporter,
last several years, PCRM has been working to end chimpanzee experimentation.
Finally, we have begun to see some positive momentum on Capitol Hill. The Senate
Committee on the Environment and Public Works held a hearing on the Great Ape
Protection and Cost Savings Act last month, and we are expecting them to vote
the bill out of committee soon.
Let me be
clear: We would never have gotten this far without your help. Your e-mails,
letters, and phone calls keep Congress informed and let them know that their
constituents care deeply about this issue.
We need to keep the pressure on. As the bill gets closer to passage, we
have heard from congressional staff that labs that experiment on chimpanzees
are ramping up their efforts to defeat the bill, and we need you to remind your
senator of the facts.
Please send an e-mail and ask your senator to support this important bill in committee. I know
you may have done this already, but now is the time to remind them of your
we can make sanctuary a reality for all of the chimpanzees currently suffering
in laboratories. Please ask your senator to support this historic bill.
