Pamela Anderson’s Trip to DC

There’s a big heart in that big chest. In her first visit to the Nation’s Capital since becoming a U.S. citizen, Pamela Anderson made a personal appeal to the government on Friday to drag itself out of the dark ages as far as animal testing is concerned.

Pam (who also stuck around to lobby the guests alongside PETA VP Dan Mathews at the White House Correspondents Dinner on Saturday) hand-delivered a PETA science report—the impetus for a recent front-page Washington Post story—condemning the failure of the Department of Health and Human Services to use sophisticated, non-animal test methods widely used in Europe, in place of decades-old, cruel and crude animal tests for toxicity. Asked about her decision to act as a courier on PETA’s behalf, she said, “Being a citizen excites me not just because I can vote, but because I can crack the whip on Capitol Hill to defend animals.”

And she does it all with a smile. You rule, Pam.

  • MeL says:

    Yep…behind those big you know beats a heart as big as those uh yeah. Pam rules! I wish more beautiful celebs would stand up as much as Pam does for animal rights!!!

  • jay says:

    Pam has Hep C. For chronic hep C related hepatitis the current management is interferon. Interferon has been thoroughly tested on animal models to ensure safety for use in humans. I am not sure where her liver functions stand right now but it would be interesting to know if she would consent to treatment if her LFT’s went up. The alternative is transplant surgery. Guess we’ll see.

  • Cat says:

    Ms. Anderson is a wonderful asset to the U.S.welcome and thank you for all you do for those without voices!

  • Pamela L. says:

    Helping animals in laboratories is paramount as are all animal injustices. I have sent out letters about that Washington Post article to my MA Senators and Congressman. I have already recieved a very positive response from Senator John Kerry. They are definately listening to us. I have always admired Pamela Anderson for her tireless campaigning on behalf of all animalscelebrity or not she follows her heart. Kudos to Dan Mathews as always and since his name came upBill Maher is the coolest and has done so much to help animals in every venue we will look forward to his return in August.

  • Mary says:

    Way to go Pam. You are not only beautiful on the outside but an angel inside. It’s not surprising my hubby adores you.

  • Nicole Reaves says:

    Pam’s awesome we need more people like her in Hollywood who are using their popularity for a good cause!!

  • Carla says:

    Thank you for all your help in helping animals of all forms! If people have turned a blind eye on animal testing maybe your cute smile will help open them!!

  • Jaclyn says:

    Beautiful Pamela is a wonderful person! I love her!

  • lynda downie says:

    Bravo Pam Anderson! Thanks for using your beauty to draw attention to animals in labs. What was up with the woman who ate the live scorpion? I hope the poor little thing got in at least one last good sting! Fantastic article in the Washington Post. It seems I’ve read it before but it was well worth a reread.

  • Rose Corletto. says:

    I really like Pam she has a lot of courage and is strong and full of love for all animals.i love what shes doing .

  • Judith, Freedom Fighter for Animals says:

    John Your website is wonderful and your protests are fantastic. What amazing people. Ireland rules!! Peace for all animals!

  • Holly says:

    I would like you to put more videos.

  • John Carmody says:

    Pamela is the animals hero! I met her when she was here in Ireland when i was promoting PETA’s Irish antiKFC campaign which you can check out on our website. Well done Pam and keep at it if only other celebrities done and acted just as much as you do.

  • Judith, Freedom Fighter for Animals says:

    I was thrilled to watch Pam and Dan on CNN’s Larry Kings show Friday night. They were just wonderful. I don’t really pay any attention to celebs but always love to hear about Paul Mc Cartney Pamela and Bill Maher who is both my husband and my favorite. On almost every one of Bill’s shows he brings up the Veggie issue. What will we do without him until he returns on Aug 22? Pamela is a very brave lady with a beautiful heart and a beautiful soul. I hope their visit to WDC made an impact. Peace to all animals!

    I think animals should be able to be free . Not locked up in cages and getting injected with jags that arent necessary.!! Brooke 11 x
