Vote Cruelty Free Campaign

Vote Cruelty Free Campaign

I attended a reception held by the Vote Cruelty Free campaign where I learnt about the work that the group is doing.

Vote Cruelty Free is a coalition of five different animal welfare charities: BUAVCompassion in World FarmingIFAWLeague Against Cruel Sports and Respect for Animals and covers a broad range of animal welfare issues. They oppose animal experiments on ethical grounds and call on the Government to ban testing of household products on animals as well as banning the use of dogs in research.

Public support for the hunting ban has been strong and recent prosecution figures show that  the Hunting Act is very much enforceble. Support for groups such as Vote Cruelty Free is essential to ensure cruel treatment of animals is prevented and strong support for the ban is maintained.

I am against any repeal of the Hunting Act and would actually like to see the law strengthened so that any loopholes that still allow people to hunt are closed. I also support strengthening legislation in the future to make sure that the Act is enforced properly.

More information about Vote Cruelty Free can be found here.

  1. I don’t think I could support this campaign since it calls for an end to all animal experimentation. Animal experimentation is still the most cost-effective, accurate way of testing many essential medicines, and the scientists who perform it are ethical people who do their best to minimise suffering.

    I agree with most of the other points in their manifesto, but this one I cannot support.

  2. Animal Cruelty is wrong and if they have to Test products on Animals that just means the products are not safe for us! if we had natural products Animal Testing wouldn t be needed. if you have to eat eggs (which i am not recommending) buy uncaged or caged- free eggs so the chickens who provide you with the eggs you eat can run freely:) thank you soo much! some nailpolish removers have gelatin (pig) and some bar soaps are made from animal fat tallow(cow) or lard (pig) and candies and snacks and yogurts like starburst have gelatin this world doesnt need animals in everything! if we have stuff without it then the other products dont need it either ( they test some nailpolishes, dish and laundry detergent, toothpaste , makeup, cosmetics, household cleaners, deodorants and other things like cigarettes on animals. and they hurt cows to get their milk they make them produce more than they are suppose to. make sure your stuff is cruelty free opi and la colors nail polish are cruelty-free check labels! tell everyone i want there to be no more cruelty. animals deserve freedom
