Pamela Anderson will make her first trip to Washington, D.C. as an American citizen on Friday when she hand delivers a report to politicians blasting the U.S. Government for failing to update animal testing procedures.
The actress/model was a Canadian when she was last in the U.S. capital and she’s determined to make a stir on Capitol Hill when she joins People for The Ethical Treatment of Animals activists to berate officials for not replacing outdated animal tests.
Anderson will make a personal appeal to her ‘new government’ to replace a profusion of outdated animal tests with modern technology that is already widely used in Europe.
The report she’ll deliver to politicians on Friday afternoon is the same PETA science report that inspired a recent front-page Washington Post article, which condemned the failure of the Department of Health and Human Services for not using "sophisticated, non-animal test methods in place of animal tests".
Anderson says, "Being a citizen excites me not just because I can vote, but because I can crack the whip on Capitol Hill to defend animals."
Anderson will continue her lobbying efforts at Saturday’s White House Correspondent’s Dinner, which she is attending with pal and PETA Vice President Dan Mathews.
