Obama: Ban The Torture Of Animals!

Posted January 30, 2009 by Rachelle Owen

If you’ve been living under a rock for the past couple of weeks, you might not know that President Obama has been taking some pretty big steps to push a ban on the torture of human beings.

Every year, animals including cats, dogs, monkeys, pigs, goats, and even dolphins are used in military training experiments that can only be described as torture. From starving, shooting, burning, stabbing, dismembering or electrocuting—animals used in military testing suffer in the name of science and war in some of the most senseless “tests” I’ve ever heard of. Seriously—shooting pigs and burning monkeys with chemicals, is this really the most humane thing we can do in 2009? All of that only to be killed in the cold hands of an experimenter. These animals need your help!



One of the most disturbing things about military tests is that there are humane and more effective alternatives to abusing animals available. In fact, some of the largest medical and trauma training centers don’t use animals at all—proving that these cruel and unusual torture techniques are completely unnecessary.

We’re asking President Obama to extend the ban to animals as well. Click here to send a letter to your Congressperson and your Senator in favor of ending shocking military tests on animals.
Stay loud!

    as much as this sucks…
    in actuality you know that they won’t stop animal testing.
    because if the government didn’t animal test, we wouldn’t have half the technology, cures for deadly diseases, and vaccines that we now have that IS saving millions of lives.
    don’t get me wrong, animal testing sucks major balls but…you know that the government won’t stop animal testing.
    i hate animal testing but thats just reality.

    I really hope he bans animal torture, it’s so inhumane. if he can ban human torture, he should do it for animals too. it’s so unfair.

    I’ll definitely be sending letters to Obama. Let’s hope he has a big enough heart to stop this.

    I mean how would the guys at the military training experiments feel when they are being tortured?
    How would they feel if they were [quote] “starving, shooting, burning, stabbing, dismembering or electrocuting” [end quote]

    THESE ANIMALS HAVE FEELINGS LIKE US HUMANS DO TOO!
