OUR FOUNDER AND VISION
Our founder is Rebecca Groves, a patient with multiple sclerosis. Living with MS, Rebecca has learnt how current mainstream drug development research is failing human patients like her, along with millions of others in need of effective treatments and cures. This failure happens because current research still relies on disease models that are scientifically proven to be unable to 'predict' the responses of humans. This is now demonstrated to cause - including fatal - harm to humans.
OUR MEDICAL EXPERTS AT AFMA/EFMA
Our medical position is represented by the leading scientific board in its field, Americans and Europeans for Medical Advancement (AFMA/EFMA). Authors of five books on the human cost of experiments on animals, AFMA/EFMA place decades of empirical evidence within the wider context of Trans-Species Modeling Theory. AFMA/EFMA have published numerous times in the peer-reviewed scientific literature.
OUR MPs IN PARLIAMENT
Dr. Lisa Cameron MP tabled Parliamentary EDM 175 in the last session, which attracted 110 cross-party signatures. This has just been re-tabled as EDM 278 - Public scientific hearing on animal experiments - Early Day Motions - UK Parliament - calling for the Government to mandate a public scientific hearing on animal experiments and their failure to find human treatments and cures. Please ask your MP to sign this life-saving initaitve http://forlifeonearth.eaction.online
We are supported by many MPs including Sir Alan Meale MP, Jeremy Corbyn MP, Diane Abbott MP, Caroline Lucas MP and Sir Greg Knight MP. We also benefit from the support of inspirational public figures including concert pianist John Lill CBE, Britian's foremost human rights barrister Michael Mansfield QC, acclaimed National Theatre actor and Downton Abbey's star Peter Egan - who is Patron of the science-based campaign FLOE - the wonderful actress Lesley Nicol who plays Mrs Patmore in Downton Abbey, and the human rights campaigner Peter Tatchell. Preeminent primatologist Dr Jane Goodall has published a filmed statement calling for the MPs' science debate hearing, please watch that here.
