Safe Chemicals Act Petition to Congress
Let's pass the Safe Chemicals Act now!
The chemical industry is spending millions of dollars lobbying Congress to block meaningful progress in Washington. Apparently, the chemical industry has no qualms with the thousands of toxic chemicals that are hurting our health and natural resources. We know what's at stake. We know we have to fight back against this multi-million dollar industry. Please join us by signing the petition below.
To the United States Senate and House of Representatives:
In recent decades, the incidence of early puberty, certain childhood cancers, infertility, and learning and developmental disabilities has increased—sometimes at alarming rates. Scientific studies demonstrate that toxic chemicals we are exposed to every day can significantly increase the risk of developing these and other diseases and disorders.
Data from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) show that exposure to toxic chemicals begins in the womb. Most pregnant American women have numerous toxic chemicals in their bodies, some of which are already known to have adverse impacts on the health of their developing babies. This is unacceptable.
Congress has an obligation to pass a law that will protect our families from harmful chemicals.
We call on Congress to make the right choice for America’s families. Pass the Safe Chemicals Act now.
