ACTION

At NIH, baby monkeys are bred to be prone to depression, torn from their mothers at birth, locked alone inside cold metal cages, and subjected to years of terrifying psychological experiments.

Please speak up for these infant monkeys and demand that NIH stop rehashing cruel and irrelevant experiments that were not acceptable 60 years ago and are not acceptable today.text

baby monkey deprivation
At NIH, baby monkeys are bred to be prone to depression, torn from their mothers at birth, locked alone inside cold metal cages, and subjected to years of terrifying psychological experiments.

For more information and a link to the videos, read Baby-Monkey Experiments Revealed in Chilling Videos. Videos obtained by PETA—that NIH unsuccessfully tried to charge PETA $100,000 for— show how NIH experimenters terrorize the baby monkeys they have intentionally made mentally ill in recent and ongoing experiments.

INFORMATION / TALKING POINTS

I was shocked to learn that the National Institutes of Health conducts and funds cruel and archaic maternal deprivation experiments in which infant monkeys are intentionally bred to suffer from mental illnesses, taken from their mothers at birth, and then subjected to terrifying and often painful experiments to exacerbate their symptoms of mental illness and test the severity of their psychological trauma.

These inhumane and contrived experiments have little relevance to human mental health, and researchers around the country are conducting sophisticated studies with human volunteers that can better answer questions about the impact of early life adversity on brain and behavioral development. I urge you to end these experiments and direct NIH's funds toward modern, human-relevant research projects.


Thank you for everything you do for animals!
