I suppose I should no longer be surprised by anything those wicked women do, but I was alarmed to see that they were now in full support of animal testing on their page, and they were using obsolete data quoted by pharmaceuticals’, animal testing labs, universities, teaching hospitals and all the businesses set up to provide support, maintenance, transportation, technical, and more for animal experiments that are no longer necessary! We have computers and we have labs looking at things at the cellular level. A scientist can’t see the cellular level torturing a cat!
All the dead guinea pigs say “You’re welcome for the inhaler, %^&@#! I just threw mine out.
Such an argument could of happened 50 years ago, but modern medicine, research methods, teaching techniques and human health have all advanced far past the need for animal testing. Here is what you should be asking yourself today…
I wonder why activists get mad?
The most horrific form of testing is called “Vivisection.” Vivisection is also very lucrative. Its respected place in modern medicine results in secure financial support, which is often a large component of a university’s budget. Many medical centers receive tens of millions of dollars annually in direct grants for animal research, and tens of millions more for overhead costs that are supposedly related to that research. These medical centers depend on this money for much of their administrative costs, construction, and building maintenance. They do not want to lose their main funding, so they support the industry.
Vivisection is the act or practice of cutting into or otherwise injuring living animals, especially for the purpose of scientific research; the act or practice of performing experiments on living animals, involving cutting into or dissecting the living body, usually without anesthesia, to measure physiological or psychological effects; operation on a living animal for experimental rather than healing purposes.
This is vivisection! These cats have been used in experiments without anesthesia, and then not euthanized but tossed on these shelves.
Who pays for animal experiments?
As a taxpayer, you support the National Institutes of Health, an agency of the United States Department of Health and Human Services. It is the primary agency of the United States government responsible for biomedical and health-related research. The NIH both conducts its own scientific research through its Intramural Research Program (IRP) and provides major biomedical research funding to non-NIH research facilities.
The IRP is the largest biomedical research institution on Earth, and last year research facilities received over $18 billion in taxpayer dollars for animal experiments that are no longer needed!
