Please Call and Ask Your Senator to End Chimpanzee Experiments

Please call your senators to ask that they support the Great Ape Protection and Cost Savings (S. 810). This important legislation will end the use of chimpanzees in invasive experiments, permanently end federal breeding programs, and release federally owned chimpanzees to permanent sanctuaries. When you call, please be polite and encouraging. Here are some talking points:

  • As a resident of [state], I am calling to urge Senator [name] to co-sponsor S. 810, the Great Ape Protection and Cost Savings act.
  • 1,000 chimpanzees are currently suffering in U.S. labs, wasting taxpayer dollars on ineffective medical research.
  • A recent report by the Institute of Medicine found that chimpanzee research was not necessary to advance human health.
  • The biological and social needs of chimpanzees cannot be met in laboratories.
  • Please act to ensure that the Great Ape Protection and Cost Savings Act moves closer to becoming law.
