Paul McCartney Wants Animal Testing Banned Worldwide

Paul McCartney

Paul McCartney is a huge animal lover and big supporter of animal rights.

So of course he was so happy when the European Union (EU) enacted a law that banned all animal testing.

Cruelty Free International (Buav) is an organization that really spearheaded the ban in Europe, and now they've joined forces with Sir Paul to bring that ban to the rest of the world.

Just leave it to Jude Law to be sexy and compassionate.

He's joining up with PETA to help make sure that seal fur stays banned in the European Union.

Jude wrote a letter on behalf of PETA and addressed it to the World Trade Organization (WTO).

He urges the WTO to keep its ban on commercial seal products, even though the Canadian government would like the ban lifted.

European Union Considers Banning Shark Finning

shark-finning-ban-in-eu.jpg

Shark finning, the cruel process of removing the fins off sharks then throwing them back into the water, has recently been banned in places like California and Toronto.

Many celebs have back this decision, including, Leonardo DiCaprio, Edward Norton, January Jones and Richard Branson.

What's great is the European Union may be hopping on the ban bandwagon and ban shark finning themselves.

The ban would prohibit all boats in EU waters as well as any EU-registered boats from finning sharks.

A rep from the EU Fisheries office said:

"We want to end the horrendous practice of shark finning and protect sharks much better.

When these proposals come before MEPs, I have no doubt that a few countries will seek to water them down. However, we will push for a rigorous ban. We need a ban on finning that enables fishermen to catch sharks in a way that puts conservation and humane treatment before making a quick buck."

Hopefully they join the rest of us in saving sharks and putting a stop to this cruel practice.

This isn't what we want to hear.

The EU was set to ban all animal tested cosmetics and toiletries by the year 2013, but now the deadline could be pushed back!

According to a statement released by the British Union for the Abolition of Vivisection:

The EU is due to ban the sale of all new cosmetics and toiletries that have been tested on animals outside the EU from 2013. However, officials are now considering extending this deadline. This is despite massive public opposition to animal tested cosmetics and an existing ban on conducting animal tests for cosmetics inside the EU. The 2013 ban on sales could be delayed for 10 more years during which thousands of animals will be injected, gassed, force-fed and killed for cosmetics on sale in the EU.

Sad.
