Good News: NIH Will Stop Torture of Monkeys

Several petitions concerning the abhorrent abuse of baby monkeys were available all through this year. PeTA had brought to light the continued cruelty towards baby monkeys who were taken away from their mothers for experimentation. These studies had been going on for decades with no new information being found during the last decade.

The National Institutes of Health (NIH) have declared an end to these atrocious experiments, this news being confirmed by congressman Brendan Boyle.

PeTA is now discussing with the NIH when and where the monkeys will be released and retired.

You can read more and sign the petition on retiring the monkeys here:

Do Experiments Get Better with Each Abuse?

Why repeat experiments for decades even though these have been already dissected, researched and studied from every angle possible? Who is behind these inhumane doings? And who pays for them? The only question easily answerable is the last one: tax payers pay for these atrocious doings.

“For decades, an experimenter at the National Institutes of Health named Stephen Suomi has been conducting cruel psychological experiments on baby monkeys. In these experiments, monkeys are bred to be prone to depression and other mental illnesses. Every year, dozens of infant monkeys are torn away from their mothers at birth and isolated in tiny cages. They are then subjected to years of painful and terrifying experiments in order to worsen their symptoms of mental illness and measure the severity of their psychological trauma.

Today, December 16, is Stephen Suomi’s birthday. It hardly seems right that the man responsible for traumatizing baby monkeys starting on the day they’re born should be able to celebrate his own birthday without being reminded of the suffering he causes.We’re asking you to take a few minutes to call Suomi’s office and politely demand that these barbaric experiments be put to an end.”

Animals in Labs = Animals in Torture Chambers

As long as there are legally binding regulations that require animals to suffer in labs it is crucial to at least not add any further cruelty to their plight. But the agencies who are supposed to enforce these supervisions are not following through.

“Despite violating the Animal Welfare Act (AWA) again and again, many animal research facilities face few consequences. The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), charged with enforcing the AWA, must take stronger action.

The Santa Cruz Biotechnology (SCBT) animal research facility has too long a history of alleged and actual Animal Welfare Act (AWA) violations, resulting in needless additional pain for animals already suffering in labs. For years, NEAVS has called on the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), charged with enforcing the AWA, to revoke the lab’s license. We would also like to thank our supporters for writing letters. But business continues as usual.”

Good News: Seventh Generation Got the Message

It is clear that through social media, petitions, e-mails and other forms of communication companies feel the pressure of the consumers and are able to react fast. So adding your voice to a petition, writing an e-mail or picking up the phone makes a difference – for many animals in this case.

“After receiving tens of thousands of calls and e-mails and after 85,000 angry consumers signed our petition, Seventh Generation now understands the importance of animal-protection issues to consumers, and it has cleaned up its act! The company reversed course and signed on to the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine’s letter to Congress acknowledging that animal tests are “slow, unreliable, and expensive” and calling for non-animal methods and strategies to be used first and foremost, and it has committed to advocating for this principle in all of its lobbying efforts.”

The Ugly Side of Beauty

Photo:PeTA

The European Union banned all testing on animals for cosmetics. People thought this was the beginning of the end to all animal testing. Sadly, with the opening of new markets, mostly those in China, it seems to be the end of this beginning. Several companies have gone back to torturing animals for beauty´s sake – and to make more money.

“There’s nothing beautiful about dripping chemicals into gentle rabbits’ eyes or rubbing substances onto their abraded skin—yet cosmetics companies such as Estée Lauder and Revlon are paying to have it done anyway.

After more than 20 years of operating cruelty-free, these companies are paying for archaic product tests that poison and kill rabbits, mice, guinea pigs, and other animals, in order to sell their products in China. It’s a disappointing backslide into cruel testing policies—and one that Estée Lauder and Revlon made in secret, without informing their customers about the change.”

Would You Experiment on Your Dog? Or Cat? Or Hamster?

At first, most people will respond to this question with an immediate negation. But asked whether or not they want progress in medical research they would mostly support this, even if it includes experiments on animals. In times of medical crises these numbers rise, as can be seen with the spread of ebola.

So first of all, finding alternatives to these inhumane experiments is crucial, and secondly, educating the public on what kind of experiments are done and to whom is essential. Progress is being made, but there still are many unnecessary torture-like experiments being done on animals.

“Almost a year has passed since the release of our investigation that captured painful dental experiments on dogs like Shy Guy behind closed doors at Georgia Regents University (GRU). Fortunately, the university agreed to stop buying dogs from random-source “Class B” dealers in response to our investigation. But it appears that lethal experiments continue on other dogs, and additional public pressure is needed to bring them to an end.”

Students Need Not Despair: There Are Alternatives to Dissecting Real Animals

To motivate students in class to learn it is important to keep them interested in the subject. In the beginning of each school year many students come back from their summer break eager to find out what the new classes will bring (well, most kids would probably prefer a longer summer break but hope for not too boring classes).

Especially in biology and anatomy classes students will learn about how the body functions, if taught right a fascinating subject. Sadly, most schools have not yet learned that there are several humane tools for teaching out there.

“It’s September, and millions of students and educators are back in school—it’s a time of new beginnings. Unfortunately, the new school year will bring a cruel end for millions of animals, including cats, frogs, sharks, fetal pigs, mink, who will be dissected in classroom demonstrations.”
