HOORAY! This is awesome news! Testing on animals is cruel and barbaric. I never understood how people can be so closed off to the suffering experienced by animals. I am so happy about this! My wish is that this starts a domino effect once and for all around the world.
The Israeli parliament the Knesset has outlawed the testing of cosmetics and cleaning products on animals.
The law passed a final reading in the Knesset on Monday 21st May and will come into effect immediately, which will see between 2,000 and 3,000 animals being spared testing.
The change in the law was proposed by MK Gideon Sa'ar of the Likud Party who commented on hearing that his bill had been successful: "This is an important law that reflects how our society is changing its regard for animal rights."
