Help put an end to painful testing of cosmetics on animals Asks Doris Day Animal League .....

We have big news for you this week.
I am thrilled to report that—thanks to animal advocates like you—the Humane Cosmetics Act (H.R. 2858) has just been introduced in Congress. That means we have a chance to ban unnecessary and painful animal testing, and push for non-animal tests that are often cheaper, faster, and more reliable.
This chance has been years in the making, will you help us seize it? Please, write your representatives right now and ask them to co-sponsor the Humane Cosmetics Act.
In this day and age, there is simply NO reason to force-feed animals in massive, lethal doses or subject them to having painful chemicals dripped in their eyes just to produce lipstick and eye shadow. It’s not just wrong, it’s expensive and unnecessary when so many cruelty-free, non-animal tests exist for cosmetic, household and industrial products.
But as obvious as this solution is to animal advocates like you and me—the sad fact is that Congress will not make banning cruel cosmetic testing a priority unless we raise our voices, and loudly. 
The innocent animals that are enduring painful tests every day cannot wait for a convenient time for Congress to make this a priority. Can you take a minute right now to urge your representatives to put an END to cruel cosmetic testing today?
Passing the Humane Cosmetics Act would be an amazing next step in the recent global transformation on cosmetic testing. This bill will align our law with the European Union, India, Norway and Israel, where more than 1.7 billion people can already buy cosmetics products that are not tested on animals. 
Please, act now and add your name to the growing list of animal advocates who are standing up for cruelty-free cosmetic testing. We’ll make sure your voice is heard loud and clear by your representatives in Congress. 
Thanks so much for your time and for your help.
