house Bill H.R. 1622

Should the USDA be Prohibited From Killing Kittens in the Name of Research?

Argument in favor

While the USDA has suspended its kitten research program for now, this bill should still be enacted to ensure the USDA can't resume testing on kittens in future.

What the fuck? Why do we need to harm animals? We have advanced our technology to not have to harm animals, or people.

This is cruel. No testing on animals especially pets.

Cats are pets, not research subjects. Cat physiology is nothing like human physiology and even pharmaceutical companies rarely use cats in research. Only absolute sadists support abuse and research (same thing) on animals. Note to James: you are one sick guy

Argument opposed

Since the USDA formally ended its kitten research program in April 2019, there's no longer a need for this bill.

Zombie bill for a bad shortsighted decision. Toxoplasmosis is a leading cause of death from food born illness. That PARASITE kills PEOPLE. Cats are the sole life-cycle HOST. Your cat can carry it, and YOU can die from it. Or go blind. And if you are pregnant, it can cause irreparable disability to the fetus. But sure let’s stop the research to save lives because “aww, kittens”. Seriously. Cure your ignorance. Look up the parasite and what it dose to people. Understand the essential role of cats in the life cycle. Can you really criticize the CDC for not letting INFECTED LABORATORY ANIMALS out to the public? What do you people think the CENTER FOR DISEASE CONTROL is for exactly?!?

Why killing new born and unborn humans is legal under the abortion laws so why should non human animals have more rights to life the a human. What a F’n question and bill to be put before this worthless Congress. You better hope that God is just myth for when you stand in judgement, you can all burn in Hell

    NO animal testing of any kind! Torturing and killing sentient, innocent creatures is scientifically unnecessary and morally indefensible.

    To those who are screeching that '"killing newborn and unborn humans is legal under the abortion laws" so why should non human animals have more rights to life than a human?' Firstly, no one is killing NEWBORNS under abortion laws... That. Is. A. Blatant. Lie. And you need to *stop* spreading that lie. Secondly, as long as you republicans continue to assert that your 2A rights trump human lives while mass shooters slaughter people, including innocent children already born and living a life, you have no business pointing fingers at abortion laws. None, whatsoever. Now to the question at hand, yes, the USDA should stop testing/torturing all and any animals for research. Period. The end. Amen.

    I finally found one Democrat to agree with. Of course the torture of any living being should be against the law in the USA, and should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law, and the sentences should be greatly increased. Furthermore, anyone who would input nay is a monster that should be permanently removed from society.

    Sometimes I wonder what world I live in! For the idiot who said there are too many of them, the USDA is not out rounding them up. They breed them to be killed. I refuse to believe that there isn’t another option!

    AmaericaIsaRepublic. Why don’t you volunteer to be a test subject? Cats are useful and needed. Especially by people like me who live on a farm. They kill rats, snakes and a host of other nuisance rodents! You know what they say about people who kill and torture animals? They become serial killers! We do not need to use animals for this kind of study. Mice have been used for decades! Get a clue you heartless jerk!

    There should not be a need for testing on animals anymore. Computers should be able to achieve test results
