STOP VIVISECTION!

Arra kérjük az Európai Bizottságot, hogy helyezze hatályon kívül a tudományos célokra felhasznált állatok védelméről szóló 2010/63/EU irányelvet, és terjesszen elő egy új javaslatot, amely véget vet az állatkísérleteknek és azok helyett kötelezővé teszi az orvosbiológiai és a toxikológiai kutatásokban a közvetlenül az emberi fajra vonatkozó adatok használatát.

STOP VIVISECTION is a European Citizens' Initiative (ECI) that has collected more than 1.150.000 certified signatures asking people to support a paradigm shift in the way biomedical and toxicological research are being conducted. This is the text of our request which advocates the replacement of animal testing with more accurate, reliable, human-relevant methods.

Being an ECI (and not a simple petition), STOP VIVISECTION enters the political arena with an entirely new tool for participatory democracy. In fact, the european citizens have acquired, in 2011, the possibility to propose legislation on matters where the EU has competence to legislate. Seizing this opportunity, a group of scientists and lay citizens from everywhere in Europe have submitted an invitation to the European Commission urging the upgrading of the extremely important field of biomedical research, for the benefit of human health, the environment and animal welfare.
