Please go to the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine to ask the remaining medical schools tht torture and kill animals to use the state-of-the art stimulators instead:

In this day and age there really is no purpose for animal experimentation.

Thousands of animals saved and only millions more to go. I am thrilled that no more will suffer there.

This is really great news and always a bittersweet victory. (I am so grateful to hear this, but am always remembering all the innocents that gave their lives in these "houses of horrors" . It takes such a long time to get this to finally happen, but finally, now, I am hopeful that we can get this unspeakable, inhumane practice to become a thing of the past! This encourages me to fight harder. Thank you for the story!
