True Blood’s Kristin Bauer is joining with lawmakers to push for passage of legislation to stop testing on chimpanzees and lead to the release of chimps held in federal sanctuaries.
In a phone message to Congress today, she urged lawmakers to join in the effort on behalf of the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine to win passage of the Great Ape Protection and Cost Savings Act (GAPCSA).
“I’m calling to ask you to co-sponsor the Great Ape Protection and Cost Savings Act. I’ve always been fascinated by the incredible intelligence and rich social lives of chimpanzees,” says Ms. Bauer. “This bill would end painful, invasive experiments on chimpanzees, saving taxpayer dollars. I’d like to invite you to a briefing on the bill this Wednesday at 1:30 p.m. at the Capitol, room S.115.”
