The Reality of Primate Experimentation in the United States: -Lies, Greed, and Insanity

It is clear from government documentation that the use of non-human primates in experimentation is an area that is not effectively regulated. The basic needs of primates are not met, even in terms of food and water. Labs including: Yale, the University of

The cruel Labs including: Yale, the University of Chicago, University of Alabama, Pennsylvania State University, Harvard, Catholic Healthcare (AZ), Brown University, University of California (Berkeley), the Salk Institute, Stanford, the Smith Kettlewell Eye Research Institute, University of Connecticut, University of Miami, MIT, University of Minnesota, the University of Texas (Austin), University of California (Davis), Johns Hopkins, Massachusetts General Hospital, Wake Forest, Washington University, University of Houston, Emory University, Columbia University, Oregon Health Sciences University, the University of Washington, University of California (San Francisco), Duke University, Princeton University, Cornell University (NY) are all listed in government records as depriving non-human primates of food and/or water and this list is nowhere close to all inclusive.

Additionally, many laboratories have committed violations of federal law that have either taken the lives of primates or caused serious injuries including: University of Wisconsin, Madison; the Southwest Foundation for Biomedical Research (San Antonio, TX), Alpha Genesis (SC), University of Texas (San Antonio), Emory University, Franklin & Marshall University, the SNBL facility (Everett, WA), Charles River Laboratories (Reno, NV); the Smith-Kettlewell Institute (San Francisco, CA), and Vanderbilt University. Again, the information available from the USDA is often incomplete. To our knowledge only one of these facilities suffered any meaningful consequences.

Scince animal testing is considered neccassary by the u.s. military complex i think the impact we can have will be substantial if we keep on it, but the cold reality is some people simply do not care about the subjects but only the results.

Thank you, Simone, for bringing attention to this issue. I don't usually read the entire article associated with a news story but I felt compelled to keep reading. The article is so obviously just the "tip of the iceberg" and one's imagination goes into overdrive at the potential abuse that is unreported. The photos included are graphic and horrifying. I would highly recommend that everyone take the time to read the article and educate themselves about this deplorable situation.

Sometimes I really hate this country and the evil done here in the name of science. If only those who conduct these experiments could feel the anquish and fear of their victims for just one minute, perhaps if they have any concious at all, they would stop.

It seems as if mankind is doomed to extinction. Any species that survives off the misery, death, torture of another will ultimately destroy itself. The US military kills people, and to make this killing as effective as possible, it first kills hundreds of thousands of animals. Do they really think that God is oblivious?
