"Exposing the truth to wipe
out animal experimentation"
Inside the Laboratories of UC Davis: The Truth About Primate Experimentation
By Michael A. Budkie,
A.H.T., Executive Director, SAEN
Primate experimentation is an extremely controversial
issue. Animal protectionists question both the moral and scientific
basis of primate experimentation. Pro-experimentation organizations
imply that medical science would come to a screeching halt without the
use of primates.
However, the experimentation itself is not often
discussed in any level of detail. The public does not know what is being
discussed when these issues are raised because research facilities are
not typically open to the casual visitor. Therefore taxpayers do not
have any idea what their money is subsidizing. Is the research unique?
Is it scientifically relevant? Is it conducted humanely? We do not know.
To answer these questions several research protocols
from the University of California, Davis will be examined. The research
projects will be examined from the point of view of scientific validity,
animal treatment, and legality.
