Scarlett’s Mission

Scarlett is helping FLOE call for representatives from the animal experimentation community to agree to debate their claims about human medicine, in a rigorous public scientific hearing judged by independent experts from the relevant fields of science.

The debate will spotlight how animal experimentation ignores critical complex differences between species, which is now demonstrated to be preventing the arrival of human treatments and cures. Read more.

Michael Mansfield QC endorses the debate

The hearing’s debate conditions have been endorsed as “well set out and fair” by Michael Mansfield QC.

Over 100 cross-party MPs have signed Parliamentary EDMs calling for this thorough scientific examination.

Many institutions which benefit from grants for animal modeling have signed a ‘Concordat On Openness On Animal Research’ – which proclaims to develop communications with the media and public – however, no one from the Concordat has agreed to this level of debate.

Please Ask your MP to sign the current EDM.
