Yes, I read this in an NIH email the other day and it is about time. In a civilized society, animals should be treated with respect..all animals. Chimps have suffered since the dark ages, human volunteers and computer generated data is todays best bet.

i will never understand how they didnt know this in the first place afteralll chimpanzees are primates the same as us so why wouldnt they share the same feelings they just express them differently putting a chimp or any pru=imate or animal in research is NO different than putting humans in research we all have feelings

This abuse and torture of animals has lasted way too long.

The only one whose fairness can be doubted is man. e.g. the abuse of chimpanzees by man is deeply unfair.
ALL experiments on ALL animals should be stopped right away.
