In his latest campaign to help stop animal cruelty in all of its forms, Sir Paul McCartney is asking the public to sign a petition put together by the British Union for the Abolition of Vivisection (BUAV), asking the EU to ban all cosmetics and similar products that have been tested on animals.
McCartney said, “Animals should not suffer in the name of beauty. Testing toiletries and cosmetics on animals is cruel and unnecessary. Join me in signing the BUAV’s petition to ensure the sale of cruel products in the EU is outlawed by 2013. Say NO to Cruel Cosmetics.”
The UK and EU have already banned products from being tested on animals, but the ban on selling items that have been tested on animals has been rumored to potentially be delayed by as many as ten years. BUAV reports that if that happens, hundreds of thousands of animals would continue to suffer and perish in the name of beauty.
