Signed and noted. There should be no question over this and no chimpanzees should be kept in the research system. America should halt this disgraceful experimentation Immediately and retire all of the chimps. No chimpanzee should EVER have been abused in this way. No animal at all should be used in testing but even the UK stopped using chimpanzees some time ago. They are our closest relatives and in my opinion more intelligent than many humans. They see and hear everything and remember it!
