"Exposing the truth to wipe
out animal experimentation"
OH - Watchdog Group Protests Animal Research At WPAFB

WPAFB, Ohio -- A watchdog group says that research at Wright-Patterson
Air Force Base is wasting tax dollars, and taking innocent lives.
A group called Stop Animal Exploitation Now is protesting the use of
animal research at the base.
The group spent Sunday on the sidewalks outside the base with one goal,
to let people know that there is an alterative. They said instead of
experimenting on animals, scientists could use human tissue grown in
labs or mannequins for medical testing.
The group claims that at least 11 different projects inside the research
labs at Wright-Patt are experimenting on animals. They said not only is
it unethical, but the group worries that it is illegal, saying there is
no regulatory agency for the Department of Defense.
Protesters said they estimate that $1.1 million of taxpayer money is
used each year to fund the research, and that those dollars could have a
different purpose, like buying more body armor for soldiers in Iraq.
At this time, there is no word from Wright-Patterson representatives on
their response to the allegations.
