Animal experiments: Animal welfare representative of the Social Democrats advocates for a long-term phase-out strategy Featured

European animal protection organizations have collected 1.4 million online signatures for the European Citizens' Initiative to phase out animal experiments. Member of the German Parliament, Luiza Licina Bode, the animal welfare representative of the Social Democrats' parliamentary group in the Parliament as well as of the Parliament's Committee on Food and Agriculture, calls for a long-term commitment beyond the agreement in the coalition treaty.

A long-term phase-out strategy, for example, as well as increased funding for research alternatives, its practical implementation, and the establishment of an interdepartmental network are necessary, she said.
