Take action against farm animal cloning!

Recently, the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) released a draft assessment that moves the nation closer to the widespread sale of meat and dairy products from animal clones and their offspring.

In their assessment, the FDA states that “cloning poses no unique risks to animal health.” Yet scientific evidence has shown that cloned animals suffer from serious abnormalities including birth defects and premature death. Furthermore, many of the higher-productivity animals that are cloned often have other health issues such as leg problems and painful diseases.

WSPA has challenged the FDA’s stand on allowing the sale of meat and dairy products from cloned animals and urge our supporters to join us in speaking out. Please visit WSPA’s website to submit your concerns to the FDA and your government representatives. Please speak out for animals today and give a voice to the thousands of farm animals who cannot speak for themselves.
