Vegan Presidential Candidate Cory Booker Pushes For End To Animal Testing

by | November 19, 2019

A bill to end cosmetic testing on animals has been introduced by a bipartisan group of US senators, including popular vegan presidential candidate Cory Booker.

The legislation — known as The Humane Cosmetics Act — has now been presented to Congress.

If approved, the bill would make it illegal for companies to test cosmetic products on animals, as well as making it illegal to sell or transport these products.

Cruelty Free International, an animal welfare organization working globally to bring an end to animal experiments, has praised the move.

“Cruelty Free International applauds this renewed effort to bring an end to animal testing for cosmetics across the United States” said Michelle Thew, Chief Executive of the organization.

Thew said that she hopes the bill “will match the progress that we have seen around the world as consumers, companies, regulators, and advocates come together to achieve a common goal of ensuring that animals no longer suffer for the sake of cosmetics anywhere.”

Democrat Booker is a strong contender for the 2020 Presidential election. A vegetarian since 1992, and vegan since 2014, Booker wants to “create a more sustainable environment for both humans and animals.”

The Presidential hopeful has declared that he wants to make it illegal for meat-manufacturers to hide their operations from the public — something which is currently possible due to laws that prevent this cruelty from being exposed.
