Dear Anne:

National Call-In Week for chimpanzees in laboratories starts today! Please call your members of Congress today and ask them to co-sponsor the Great Ape Protection and Cost Savings Act (S. 810/H.R. 1513), which will end painful experiments on chimpanzees.

Even if you have called or e-mailed before, please commit a few minutes today.

Please click here to find the phone numbers of your U.S. Senators and Representative.

Here are talking points:

  • I am calling to ask Representative [insert name] or Senator [insert name] to co-sponsor the Great Ape Protection and Cost Savings Act (S. 810/H.R. 1513) because [personalize with your reason].
  • Chimpanzees in laboratories suffer physically and psychologically, and it is unethical to continue to use them in experiments.
  • This bill will save $300 million in federal tax dollars over 10 years, helping to reduce the deficit.

We are committed to ending the exploitation of chimpanzees held captive in laboratories this Congress, so we need your help to pass this important legislation. Ending chimpanzee experiments in the United States will affect more than 1,000 individuals. The bill will save them from lives of painful experiments in stressful laboratory environments where their emotional, physical, and psychological needs cannot be met.

Over the last few months, major media outlets have reflected the emerging scientific and ethical consensus that chimpanzee experimentation must end. In a groundbreaking development, Scientific American – the most prestigious general interest science magazine in the world – called for a ban on September 28. Just last week, McClatchy Newspapers published an op-ed entitled "Stop Wasting Tax Dollars on Chimp Abuse."

Join our fight to end the unethical and ineffective use of chimpanzees in experimentation. Your members of Congress need to know that you care about this issue.

Please call your members of Congress and urge them to support this historic bill - you can find their phone numbers here:
