Donations fund animal testing

PEOPLE who are considering contributing to the British Heart Foundation's upcoming fundraising day deserve to know their kind donations could be used to fund vivisection.

The British Heart Foundation funds research on animals, including dogs, pigs and goats.

Yet animal research offers little hope of advancing medical progress. There are numerous non-animal methods of conducting research into heart disease.

The BHF needs to focus solely on such techniques, which, unlike animal experiments, are directly relevant to humans.
