There’s more you can do
In addition to signing the pledge, call or write the UW System President and let him know you are withholding your support until these cruel experiments are ended.

Oh so hard to look at pictures like these of the adorable baby monkey and with the mom. Such a sad site knowing that he could be the one dying for this University. Maybe all the students should have to hold the monkey's and play with them first and then see if they could kill them. I guess that would tell what kind of person they are.

What an evil wicked sadistic brute. What a purposeless, disgusting thing to do. I hope he is deluged with letters and phone calls and I hope the rest of his life is spent in abject misery.

Noted, tweeted, and shared. Unbelievable what is done in the name of supposed science! Sad and shameful. I wasn't able to sign because I didn't attend college there, but if I had, I would let them know how ashamed I was of attending such a inhumane institution.

Only for alumni and current students at UW. Why was this done even ONE TIME, and how has this been allowed to continue? I am going to seek out the email or phone number for and write and call directly! SO HORRIFIC! How dare he? He does not OWN A SINGLE LIFE ON HIS EARTH MOTHER. NO ONE HAS THE RIGHT. I hope more who are not affiliated with UW also will email and call to end Ned Kalin's maternal deprivation experiments..

I FOUND THIS and we can take action. The article is valuable, so please read it for more info! Then contact the Chair of Oversight listed at the bottom, please!
http://www.allanimals.org/maternal-deprivation.html
The Chair of the oversight committee ultimately responsible for approving Kalin's and Bennett's methods is Dr. Robert Streiffer. He is the Chair of the College of Letter and Sciences Animal Care and Use Committee. He teaches philosophy and bio"ethics". It isn't outside the realm of possibility that by focussing our attention on him that something might be done to stop Bennett or even send her packing. With enough pressure, maybe Kalin wouldn't be allowed to begin ripping babies from their mothers' arms.

For the time being, we are encouraging people to call and to write to Robert Streiffer. Tell him that bringing maternal deprivation back to the UW-Madison is a giant ethical step backwards. Ask him to do everything in his power to stop this and to bring the matter to the attention of the entire campus community. Many people will be shocked to learn that the university has knowingly and willingly chosen to return to its very dark past by reviving and embracing the cruel methods pioneered by Harry Harlow.

Just emailed kreilly@uwsa.edu and rstreiffer@wisc.edu

Kevin P. Reilly, UW System President:

It is spiritually criminal, and should be legally criminal, to treat living beings, sacred mothers and their children, especially the newly born and those whose every instinct to protect and love them in the manner which Kalin and Bennett are scheming to do!. Never allow Kalin or Bennett to commit such horrifically unethical, tormentingly cruel actions. We already know that babies and mothers need each other, and that all in Creation needs love.

Dr. Robert Streiffer:

As Chair of the oversight committee, ultimately responsible for approving Kalin's and Bennett's methods, it is urgent that you deny any more experiments that cause suffering to any and all sentient beings, our closest relatives in this Universe. We are temporary guests here behaving as megalomaniacal marauding thieves and killers. We have no right and and every reason never to harm life and that power which sustains living beings while we are here.

You are the Chair of the College of Letter and Sciences Animal Care and Use Committee. You teach philosophy and bio"ethics". Please stop Bennett or even send her packing and fire Kalin so that he won't be allowed to rip babies from their mothers' arms.

Bringing maternal deprivation back to the UW-Madison is a giant ethical step backwards. Please do everything in your power to stop this and bring the matter to the attention of the entire campus community. Many people will be shocked to learn that the university has knowingly and willingly chosen to return to its very dark past by reviving and embracing the cruel methods pioneered by Harry Harlow.
