April 24th: World Day For Animals In Laboratories

NO NEW ANIMAL LABORATORIES AT ST. PAULíS HOSPITAL

The St. Paulís Hospital in Vancouver, BC is planning to relocate for a new hospital completion in 2022. Few people knew about the experiments that started in the late 50s and continues today. Our campaign is aimed at stopping any new animal labs.

"Animal models" do not have the naturally occurring human problems. There are major biological and anatomical differences between and within species, sexes, age groups, races, and so on. Drugs proven ďsafeĒ in animals have caused injuries and death in humans. Also drugs that fails the animal tests may still be tested in humans and may harm or help them. Human and non animal studies are the only way to find cures for human maladies.

As you will see in our new video of the history of animal experiments at St. Paulís Hospital the animal victims included monkeys, dogs, rabbits, guinea pigs, pigs, rats, and mice. Animals are subjected to various experimental surgeries, forced to inhale cigarette smoke, and much, much more. Any species of animals can be subjected to extreme pain in the Canadian peer review research system. The lucrative animal research industry must not be allowed to repeat St. Paulís Dark History of Vivisection.

The Providence Health Care ( thenewstpauls@providencehealth.bc.ca ) and the City of Vancouver ( newstpauls@vancouver.ca ) are asking for public input during the planning process. Please tell them that the proposed research tower should only be modern, innovative technology. No More Animal Experiments!

Please also see our other Petition: Stop the Pain! Stop Vivisection Canada! In addition to a complete phase out over the 10 years, this petition seeks to first stop some of the most painful experiments on animals.
Stop Vivisection Canada.

Sign and pass it on to your friends, family, physicians, politicians, and others. You can help protect people and animals from inhumane, scientifically fallacious animal experiments that are a waste of health care funds!
