No animal on this earth should be used for experiments so that humans can gain from it. It is just inhumane - if humans want to use products then it should be tested on humans themselves, God knows there are enough of us around.

Federal legislation against research on animals is necessary.

Why? Because there's money in it for some despicable creeps, who are devoid of a conscience!

IT'S A STEADY PAYCHECK EACH WEEK. Lots of money involved. They can falsify their findings any way they want toto try to make it look good. Who is going to argue, the chimps? The "researchers" make themselves look real busy as if they are "doing something" scientific. They can't fool most if us. Animal experimentation is archaic & barbaric. Ask a "real" scientist. He will tell you the truth. It's not science, They are just little boys torturing animals.
