Speak the Truth. Speak Out. Help the Chimpanzees!
We are continually faced with great opportunities which are brilliantly disguised as unsolvable problems.”
The Great Ape Protection and Cost Savings Act (GAPCSA,H.R.1513/S.810) is an unparalleled bill proposing to stop all testing and research on all five great apes. The GAPCSA bill sits before Congress now, and if passed will permanently ban testing and research on great apes (chimpanzees, bonobos, gorillas, orangutans, and gibbons), stop all research funding in and out of the U.S., and prohibit the breeding and transportation of great apes for research, in addition to retiring all federally owned chimpanzees.
The lives of over 1100 chimpanzees in the United States are delicately balancing between permanent retirement, so deserved and earned after a lifetime of unbearable trauma, or going back into the horrifying world of medical research. They have more than paid their dues to humans, and now it is up to us to save them… to give them a life of safety, choice and peace.
Your voice is needed to keep the energy of GAPCSA moving forward. Please contact your State Representatives and Senators to encourage their sponsorship of the Great Ape Protection and Cost Savings Act. Please visit the following web sites for more information.
