    Keeper of the hens

    I just posted on Facebook about how disgusted I was with the British Heart Foundation's latest adverts, which show a talking zebrafish who is asking the viewer for donations to help fund him helping scientists unlock the zebrafish's ability to mend it's own heart.

    Whilst this sounds like a worthwhile cause, it's actually asking you to fund ANIMAL TESTING. The BHF are basically putting a happy face on animal cruelty.

    I just googled it and came across the British Heartless Foundation website which exposes the BHF's part in the huge area of vivisection, animal cruelty and testing.

    Gruesome. That's really shocking.

    I just google'd cancer research and they test on animals...how much have we raised for them over the years?

    Scroll down on this website, it lists all the charities and their status.

    I've always refused to donate to research campaigns, I'm afraid, for that very reason. i give to cancer relief organisations instead.

    Likewise CC. I would rather give to animal charities. If I give to a human health one its something like MacMillan. The research charities have always been big vivisectionists, even back when I was in school (and was an ardent anti-v). I've never understood why humans think they are so important that they should survive at the expense of weaker species.

    Gosh !! I never knew that. This should be making the news because I doubt many people are aware of this. I am going to think twice before I donate.

    Almost anything with 'research' in its name will involve vivisection. Horrid but true.
