Fighting for animal liberation and an end to speciesism
I was horrified when I found out that the University of Washington, performs sickening experiments on monkeys. Employees at the school perform grisly vivisections -- experiments on live animals -- drilling holes into the skulls of monkeys, implanting coils on their eyes, and tearing infant monkeys away from their mothers to intentionally cause psychological trauma.
The primate research taking place at University of Washington is scientifically meaningless. Experiments on baby monkeys are fraudulent and cannot be extrapolated to humans, but University of Washington vivisectors routinely perpetrate barbaric experiments on baby monkeys such as inducing convulsions, disfiguring eyes, suffocating them, torturing babies while still in their mothers' wombs, causing deformities and more.
If the babies don't die on their own, they are killed at one year of age and thrown away. For this the vivisectors received over $18 million of our tax dollars between 2010-2011 alone and another $12 million to breed baby monkeys for other laboratories to torture.
Other schools, including Harvard University, have been forced to shut down their live animal experiments -- it is time for all such experiments to end, not only saving many animal lives, more importantly saving us taxpayers millions of dollars and help reduce the National Debt.
PLEASE WRITE YOUR CONGRESSIONAL REPRESENTATIVES TO REFUSE TO FUND THIS SENSELESS TORTURE OF ANIMALS AND SAVE US TAXPAYERS MILLIONS OF OUR HARD EARNED DOLLARS.
