Barker and PCRM Fight Testing

Bob Barker has teamed up with PCRM to push the University of Virginia to discontinue testing on live cats.


Former host of The Price Is Right Bob Barker has joined the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine in the fight to end the use of cats for medical experiments at the University of Virginia. In an open letter to the university’s president, Teresa A. Sullivan, Barker expresses his concern for the suffering of cats used in its pediatrics residency-training program, which requires students to force plastic tubes into the mouths and tracheas of the animals. Barker suggests transitioning to human-patient simulators, a move that 94 percent of pediatrics residency programs have already made. PCRM also offers a form letter that readers can use to submit their own concern to Sullivan.
