Leona Lewis issues plea against animal testing

Washington, Tue, 14 Feb 2012 ANI

Washington, Feb 14 (ANI): Singer Leona Lewis has issued a personal plea to John Dalli, the European Commissioner for Health and Consumer Policy, to help end the suffering of animals used in cosmetics testing.

 

The 'Bleeding Love' hitmaker has sent a Valentine's card and letter to Dalli, to encourage him to support 'Humane Society International's CrueltyFree2013' campaign against animal testing, Contactmusic reported.

 

"Like most girls, I love make-up, but my ethical principles are also very important to me. No new lipstick, eye-liner or other cosmetics ingredient can ever be worth the suffering and death of defenceless animals forced to endure painful toxicity tests," she wrote.

 

"These gentle animals are killed by the hundreds in some tests, despite the fact that manufacturing products free of new animal testing is perfectly possible through the use of thousands of existing, safe ingredients.

 

"Animals have suffered enough - if their pain has been deemed immoral within the EU, it must also be immoral outside the EU. To trade in their pain would be hypocrisy," she added.

 

The 26-year-old singer is one to have signed the 'CrueltyFree2013' online petition, including the likes of Ricky Gervais, Dame Judi Dench, Melanie C, and Sir Roger Moore. (ANI)
