Experimentation on our fellow primates is every bit as bizarre and cruel as was the Nazi experimentation on the mentally challenged. We must bring this horror to an end.

Noted, Signed & Shared this important message! I hope that we can free them all- even those that are not "federally owned" and are held in private laboratories! These poor animals who for years have had to tolerate being locked up in cages, isolated from one another, and having to tolerate such invasive experiments causing them horrible pain and frustration every day of their lives for no reason as scientists are now saying, that their suffering was unnecessary and that no gains have been made through this research or the chimpanzees' torment! But look how long It took them to come to this conclusion and what these poor animals had to endure! I hope that we can, at least, free them all from such a painful existence.

For every action there is a reaction. According to the law of karma, if we cause pain and suffering to other living beings, we must endure pain and suffering in return, both individually and collectively. We reap what we sow, in this life and the next, for nature has her own justice. No one can escape the law of karma.

signed. For being so "intelligent" it amazes me how stupid we are. Each time we interfere with life for any being, we are doing ourselves so much harm that most of us are too blind to see. Believe me, the harmful effects will remain with the abuser far beyond the lifetime in which the deed was committed. We are here on earth to progress in the higher levels within our third eyes, , not to cause suffering or death to others who are here for the same purpose.

I would just like to add a surprising update to this story:

I live in a one-party state, solidly dominated by Republicans. I petition my representatives fairly regularly on a wide range of issues...and have always received courteous form emails rejecting whatever position that I affirm. I have come to expect that whatever position I hold; they hold the opposite. Then, just a few days ago, I actually received an email from my senator telling me that he too is against experimentation on apes.

I do not think that I have ever been so pleasantly surprised as this since I was a kid and my dad got me my first car. This is a small, small victory, but in the long dark tunnel of the struggle, even a small light looks like hope.
