Ahh, we love Gillian Anderson. Ever since The X-Files, she’s stolen our hearts. So when I found out that Gillian had sent a letter on behalf of PETA Europe to every single Member of the European Parliament (MEP) in aid of the 12 million animals suffering in European laboratories, I couldn’t help but smile a lot.
Right now, MEPs are considering a proposed law that could improve conditions for tens of millions of animals who are experimented on and killed in laboratories across Europe each year. In a vote that will take place next week, the politicians can change this proposal for better or for worse, so Gillian’s help has come at just the right time.
Of course, this isn’t the first time that Gillian has spoken out in behalf of animals. The award-winning actor has taken action for animals time and time again. Recently, she narrated a video of undercover footage taken inside rabbit fur farms—it was part of PETA’s campaign to pressure Giorgio Armani to stick to his fur-free pledge.
