For Dummies:

1] Vivisection is already abrogate in Europe

2] This petition is to abrogate the law that abrogate Vivisection

3] This means = Animal holocaust to start again

But do not worry, this is not possible. The petition is made to keep people talk about it for economical reasons and not ethic or to protect animals.

This is hard to explain to you guys but that petition is just meant to keep the attention on Vivisection to make people talk about it but it cannot do anything.

The text says "abrogate directive 2010/63/EU on the protection of animals used for scientific purposes"

If this happens (But it cannot) the law that protects animals in Europe, that prevents Vivisection researches for cosmetics, will be abrogate and all animals will be exposed to vivisection without any protection.

A new law takes years or decades to be approved and during that time all animals will be tortured without any limit.

Wake up guys! It is just for economical purpose.

We are not talking about vivisection for cosmetics but vivisection for any kind of research.
Plus, we cannot say animal testing has ended for cosmetics as chimical products still have to be tested on animals and cosmetics may contain chimical products.

Of course, This is true, I know well. =) And I glad t see you are well informed that you have to choose only Certified (or auto-certified) Cruelty-Free products that do not contains animals, or their derivatives, ingredients. This is the only way to be sure. =)
There is a "Cruelty-Free" list available for that purpose.

But I was talking about the fact that this petition is completely wrong!
They are even not activists. They are making this for economical purpose and not for ethic or love for animals.

As I said the text is clear, it says that the law that protects animals from vivisection will be abrogate (Which is not possible).
And after that to start a propose for a new law that changes laws about vivisection.

This means years if not decades without a law that protects animals from vivisection laboratories.
A law takes many years to be wrote and approved especially if it is all Europe and not a single nation.

And moreover, the new law is not meant to be necessarily a better one to protect animals.
No one have can know what kind of modify will be applied to a new law.

You all have signed the petition have been trolled my friends, next time think twice please.

People are greed, they can kill humans for money, and we know the horrible things they have done in vivisection laboratories. They do not care, they just want to make money.

You know why they changed vivisection name with different ones?
To keep people attention far from them! So they can do all the tortures they want.

So if you have read this, do not bother to sign the petition. Thanks

Sorry for the sooo late reply ^^;

There are manyyy activists involved in the "stop vivisection european initiative" in fact, a lots of associations have been united to get signatures all around Europe.
It was created by an association who's working for creating cruelty-free tests.

The reason it is saying that the law that protects animals from vivisection will be abrogate is not to make them come back but it is to change it. It needs to be abrogated to be make a new one instead of this one which still allow animal abuse.

At risk of being repetitive,
the text of the petition spoke clear, it says that they want to abrogate the law that protects animals from vivisection!!!
Which is madness!
And after that they claim to start a propose for a new law that changes laws about vivisection. They even have not mentioned about a more protective law for all the animals, they just ask for a different law and to abrogate the current one; This is extremely worrying.
If they would have cared about animals then they would have NEVER said that the law that protects animals have to be abrogate.
To abrogate the current law, obtained after many years of work, means that animals will be left without a law that protects animals from vivisection laboratories, for years if not decades!
A law takes many years to be wrote, presented and finally approved, especially if it is all Europe and not a single nation.
Moreover we have no certain that the new law will be better for animals, no one knows that.

Cosmetics industry and pharmaceutical companies need patents to keep selling their products.

Think twice my friend, do not be naive.

Why animalists and people in Great Britain and Ireland have not signed the petition? you think they did not knew about that petition? Of course they knew well about it.

Done. Valid signature from me from the place where I am a resident :) Sadly it looks like there is not a lot of signatures from my current country of residence :(

Not sure if trolling somehow...:juat: 
Mistikfantasy Oct 28, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Me trolling?! ahaha I am Vegan my friend! and I cried compulsively when first time I read and saw about vivisection and slaughtering animals in farms.

But do not worry if you signed they cannot do nothing. The law will not be abrogated this is for sure.
