The Netherlands Takes a HUGE Step for Animals in Labs!

Posted by 2 months ago | Permalink | Comments (130)

In a historic move, the Netherlands is taking a major stand for animal – and human – rights! The Dutch government is working to end all animal experimentation in the country – and PETA scientists were asked to help.

The Netherlands has already passed a motion in Parliament to phase out experiments on non-human primates, and now, its goal is to be using only human-relevant, non-animal testing methods by 2025. This ground-breaking decision is the first of its kind taken by any country. It reflects both today’s innovations in cutting-edge science and changing attitudes about the morality of using animals in experiments . It is a momentous step that will save countless animals and hopefully inspire other countries to make similar changes.

The Dutch national committee for the protection of animals used in scientific research (NCad) are planning a schedule to phase out all animal experiments and PETA UK’s science policy adviser Dr Julia Baines and Yvonne Lemmen of PETA Netherlands were recently invited to attend a meeting at The Hague with NCad officials and other stakeholders to discuss specific ways to replace animal experiments. Subsequently, PETA scientists submitted an extensive dossier of information to guide the Dutch government’s transition to animal-free testing.

We’re thrilled that the Netherlands continues to strive for ethical animal-free science and look forward to a day when cutting up, drugging, poisoning, shooting, burning, and electrocuting animals have all been relegated to the dustbin of history .

      THANK YOU VERY MUCH….. FOR YOUR HELP. ALL ANIMALS DESERVE TO BE SAFE AND RESPECT THEM.

      A good step toward becoming true Homo sapiens. But why wait until 2025 to stop the tremendous cruelty toward our sentient fellow beings? Cruelty is humanity’s worst crime. In Mahatma Gandhi’s words: “Vivisection is the darkest of all the dark crimes of humanity”. All Societies must stop NOW from mistreating and torturing animals!

      Thanks to the Netherlands to stop experiences on animals.

      Awesome Netherlands!!! Way to go. Love u more now.

      Thanks to the Netherlands,I trust many other countries follow suite.

  • Nina commented on September 29, 2016 at 11:50 am

    The Netherlands at it again! HUGE respect <3

    • Yuet Ngor Rappard commented on September 30, 2016 at 9:01 am

      Absolutely so good to hear this. Een groot bedank! I live in New Zealand and have always been against animal testing since I was a kid. New Zealand should learn from this, as our Otago University in my home city of Dunedin is going to build a 50 million dollar (NZ) Animal Testing Laboratory!!!!! I am a volunteer for the New Zealand anti Vivisection society and signed the petition. We already in August staged a protest and hopefully many more. Disgusting, and New Zealand is not learning!!

      • Daren commented on September 30, 2016 at 3:28 pm

        Down with newzealand I’m spreading the news across uk

      • Tanya Lyders commented on September 30, 2016 at 10:23 pm

        I endorse your comments wholeheartedly. I also live in Dunedin and I am appalled by this move by the University of Otago. It is a very grim thought that we will have this building in our central city area. I for one will not be able to walk past without thinking about the pain, suffering and death of the animals that is going on in that building. We all know that it is unscientific, so why do they insist on following such outmoded (and barbaric) processes?

      • olimpia marina commented on October 1, 2016 at 3:38 am

        Why not NOW ????? Why postpone the suffering until 2025?

      • olimpia marina commented on October 1, 2016 at 3:43 am

        Alternatives to animal testing exist….Even humans are more adequate because they can agree and the results are more satisfactory..they can describe the simptoms…Animals can’t…Devoted Scientists can test on each other.

      • Pamela Smith commented on October 2, 2016 at 9:38 pm

        I agree wholeheartedly, Yuet Ngor Rappard – as a Dunedin NZ resident I am ashamed of Otago University’s scheme for a new animal testing lab, when forward-thinking countries such as The Netherlands are committing to phasing these out. For a country which markets itself as “100% Pure” and trades on a clean, green image, the real situation in New Zealand is shockingly different.

    • Marianne Mansour commented on October 1, 2016 at 1:54 pm

      Yes, absolutely a step in the right direction for millions of lab animals…however, still 9 years away. Maybe the house of cards will start tumbling down all over the world. Thank you.

      Totally agree.
      I wish Canada would be humane as well.
      Congratulations Netherlands !!
      Thank You for being there for innocent helpless animals.

  • Jeanie Burfoot commented on September 29, 2016 at 2:30 pm

    This is absolutely shocking..how can this be justified…no animal should suffer at the hands of any organisation. For goodness sake this is the 21st century. I am pleased we no part of the EU if this kind of sanctions take place!!!

    • Really Global commented on September 29, 2016 at 11:25 pm

      Jeanie Burfoot – the UK has dozens and dozens of animal testing facilities! Never heard of Porton Down? Nothing to do with the EU – and you haven’t left yet.

      • jeanie Burfoot commented on September 30, 2016 at 12:21 pm

        Agreed, where ever animal testing cruelty is taking place it needs to be addressed and banned all over the world. i know we have not yet left the EU but we will be out in the near future. May add was not a decision l made sadly we lost the vote!!

  • Jack Hurst commented on September 29, 2016 at 7:47 pm

    Way to go Netherlands…who is next ???

    • Pete commented on September 30, 2016 at 2:59 pm

      That’s the great thing, once one country takes the lead, others will follow. This could mark the beginning of the end for animal testing.

  • angela lister commented on September 29, 2016 at 7:48 pm

    This is fantastic news and I hope that all countries follow in their footsteps. Animal testing and experiments should be discontinued for the sake of all the animals that suffer. In this day and age of technology I am sure that animals are not needed for this.

  • Karen Bolduc commented on September 29, 2016 at 7:50 pm

    All other countries PLEASE take notice!!!!!

  • Theresa ledet commented on September 29, 2016 at 7:50 pm

    People that continue to use ANY animal for experiments are heartless maybe the one doing the experimentation on the animal should trade places with to see what it feels like this Inhumane treatment of animals needs to stop now

  • Vasilis commented on September 29, 2016 at 7:53 pm

    That’s an important step indeed. But why by 2025, that’s still nine whole years away, think what this accounts for in terms of animals suffering … Please wipe out animal testing a.s.a.p., this cannot be NINE years!

    • Janet Wickens commented on September 30, 2016 at 1:55 pm

      Got to agree with you there. Surely it can’t take 9 years to phase out.

  • Kanchan Singh-McAuley commented on September 29, 2016 at 7:54 pm

    this is awesome 🙂

    • nena commented on October 1, 2016 at 2:20 am

    Soy animalista. Stop torture of innocent animals for commercial reasons.

  • Darlene Roepke commented on September 29, 2016 at 8:04 pm

    If only everyone would join forces…that would be the best news ever. I can’t handle seeing innocent animals being tortured for experiments or for any reason. We all need to step up, and be their voice, they didn’t do anything to deserve to be treated like that. Let’s all do what we can to help them.

  • Sharon L Vongarlem commented on September 29, 2016 at 8:06 pm

    Anything that helps end suffering for animals/humans is always a good thing.Thank you.

    brilliant well done x

  • naomi elias commented on September 29, 2016 at 8:17 pm

    Excellent news! I can’t see the rotten British government following suit. They are quite happy with cruelty to animals, and if we come out of Europe they will be able to do anything they want without accountability to anyone.

  • Josephine Biagi commented on September 29, 2016 at 8:23 pm

    Animal test needs to be OUT-LAWED. There are other testing skills used TODAY!

  • Sylvia Lewis commented on September 29, 2016 at 8:38 pm

    Three cheers to the thoughtful government officials who opted for this decision. Thank you…..from the animals too. I hope that we can also become a nation of enlightenment with respect to innocent animals.

  • Irene Francis commented on September 29, 2016 at 8:39 pm

    The Netherlands – you’ve proved yourself (again), to be the most humane, the most progressive, and the smartest country in the world – a proud day and my utmost respect to you.

    One question, why wait until 2025? Think of the innocent lives that could be saved if it were now.

  • Amy Grant commented on September 29, 2016 at 11:14 pm

    It’s about time people realize that testing products on any animal is cruel and horrifying and totally unnecessary. Would you like your children to be experimented on….some people consider animals as members of the family. They feel pain just like we do. Stop this cruelty now… How can you people do this and be able to sleep at night? Would you put your own pets through this? I think not..please stop doing this if you have any heart at all. There are other ways to test cosmetics. STOP DOING THIS NOW!!!

  • Suzanne commented on September 29, 2016 at 11:18 pm

    There are so many other ways to test cosmetics other than using small. Inocent animals , 1st stop useing has harmful chemicals that common sense dictates can only be harmfull to anyone

  • Putois commented on October 1, 2016 at 6:53 am

    Thank you PETA. The world may be a better place with organisations like you. It is high time this “wonderful” species called Man did something to alleviate the suffering S/HE causes to the creatures S/HE feels so superior to. It is high time we stood up together and protected them in every way we can. It is high time to STOP hiding behind excuses (“man has always mistreated and used animals for experimentation clothes and food” etc). It is high time Man woke up from HIS/HER ignorance.

  • Tanya Nockler-Golding commented on October 1, 2016 at 9:05 am

    • Gabrielle Mullan commented on October 17, 2016 at 1:32 pm

      I am so glad that the intelligent Netherlanders are once again leading the way in farsighted, experimental issues. I am a huge fan of intelligent government and love to see PETA being consulted at such high level. It is of course a well known fact that there is absolutely no need to involve animals in experiments and at last such brilliant underlying intelligence is being acknowledged and acted upon. I hope they are now in line for becoming the best and brightest thinkers in terms of world leadership, in the eyes of other nations. The Netherlands for the next Nobel prize!!

  • Donna L Blake commented on October 2, 2016 at 1:07 pm

    Netherlands is leading the way for the rest of the world to hopefully follow suit and ban animal testing, by doing so the Netherlands demonstrates that there are viable, reliable alternatives to vivisection which are not only more humane but also more cost effective.

    pourquoi attendre de si longues années avant d’y mettre fin ? combien d’animaux vont encore souffrir? quand on est certain des bienfaits d’une décision , alors pourquoi la remettre à des années lumière pour qu’elle entre en action ????

    Finally some common sense. If it worked most disease would have been eradicated decades ago. It’s a barbaric practice, meaning Human beings are Barbarians. Those animals feel as much pain as humans. It’s those evil Capitalists they care about nothing except money.

    This is just hypocrisy because it only means that animal experiments will be shifted to other countries. The real move would be to prohibit drugs that are produced with the involvement of animal experiments! Just as with everything, the supply is ruled by the demand. So stop taking medication based on animal experiments if you are really concerned about animals!
