Tell the US House: Pass the FDA Modernization Act

smiling child and doctor togetherWe have a chance to make history and take a step toward transforming medical research.

Please ask your US Representative to urgently support and pass Senate Bill 5002, also known as the FDA Modernization Act 2.0.

The US Senate recently passed this landmark bipartisan bill by unanimous consent.

Now we need the US House to approve it so that it can become law.

This bill will remove the FDA’s 84-year-old requirement for animal testing in the early stages of drug development. It also removes the animal testing requirement for the development of biosimilars.

Please urge your US Representative to pass the FDA Modernization Act.

This action takes just minutes, and we need your representative to hear a groundswell of demand for passing this bill.

Thank you for helping us transform medical research!


Animal testing fails more often than it succeeds.

High rates of false positives and false negatives harm vulnerable humans by putting them at greater risk for adverse effects in clinical trials. Animal testing also harms and kills millions of animals every year, subjecting them to physical pain, and mental and emotional distress.

It’s time for medical testing to catch up with eight decades of advances in science and ethics.

We deserve medical testing that is modern, ethical, and effective, and that protects and benefits people and animals.
