Everett, Mass. – Please see the following statement from PETA neuroscientist Dr. Emily Trunnell regarding last night’s vote by the Everett City Council in Massachusetts to ban animal testing laboratories from the city:
PETA congratulates Stephanie Martins, the other members of the city council, and the residents of Everett for banning all experiments on animals in their community. No doubt, many localities will follow the city’s progressive lead by voting to keep the oppression and cruelty of animal laboratories out of their areas. As PETA scientists’ Research Modernization Deal shows, experiments on animals are failing to help humans and can be replaced right now with human-relevant methods. Modern, animal-free science is kinder, safer, and far more effective.
