Cosmetic animal-testing ban goes into effect in European Union

The ban on the sale of cosmetics that have been tested on animals is now the law of the land in the European Union. This ban should be imposed everywhere.

What some laboratories are doing to animals is criminal. If someone in the United States, for example, was caught pouring burning chemicals into the eyes of bunnies, they would be jailed for animal cruelty. (Okay the sentence would be light, but at least it’s against the law.)

But somehow, these repetitive acts of cruelty – in so many cases where the results are already well known or where alternative, technology-based test can be performed – are deemed legal.
