TV Ads Expose Animal-Rights Opposition to Breast Cancer Research


Washington—As Arizonans observe Breast Cancer Awareness Month, the non profit Center for Consumer Freedom is airing television advertisements throughout the state to alert the public that cancer research’s greatest enemy—the animal rights movement— is operating in their midst. The TV ad began running last weekend and will continue through Thursday.

The ad features a graphic depiction of a burning pink breast-cancer ribbon, with the following voice over:

Who wants to slow down breast cancer research? The animal rights movement.

They want to end medical testing in order to save lab rats.

If you ever took a prescription drug or had surgery, you owe your life to medical testing on animals.

Your life.

Since the animal rights movement doesn’t care about your life, why should they have a say in what you eat or wear?

“Arizonans need to know that the animal rights movement is a real threat to their families,” said David Martosko, the Center for Consumer Freedom’s Director of Research. “It’s not just about cows and chickens. The same activists who want to dictate what we eat are trying to slow down breast-cancer research too, because animals are involved. Buying into their twisted agenda is a serious, life-and-death decision. And our mothers, sisters, and daughters will ultimately pay the price.”
