Pamela Anderson—in her first visit to Washington since becoming a U.S. citizen—will make a personal appeal to her new government to replace a profusion of outdated animal tests with modern technology that is already widely used in Europe. In the shadow of the nation’s capitol, Anderson will hand-deliver a PETA science report—the impetus for a recent front-page Washington Post story—condemning the failure of the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to use sophisticated, non-animal test methods in place of animal tests ... "Being a citizen excites me not just because I can vote, but because I can crack the whip on Capitol Hill to defend animals," says Anderson.
Pamela Anderson has finally cast off the shackles of her Canadianness in order to become a full-fledged citizen of the US of A ... so I suppose congrats are in order for our friends to the North. Meh, we'll take her ... at the very least she will be one more vote for the animal-friendly lobby here in the US and we could really use her income tax revenue. God bless America!! [Source]
