Did taxpayer-funded animal experiments cause the worst catastrophe of our time? It’s increasingly plausible and we need to take steps to ensure it doesn’t happen again.


From Anthony Bellotti, President & Founder:

Did taxpayer-funded animal experiments cause the worst catastrophe of our time?

That’s the question the whole world seems to be asking – and our campaign to Defund the Wuhan Animal Lab is smack dab at the center of it.

In fact, we were the very first to expose this Wuhan Animal Lab funding scandal.

I’ve pasted our latest op-ed below, which does an excellent job explaining the role WCW is playing in what is arguably the most important story of our time.

Please give it a read if you haven’t already. And as always, thanks again for your continued support.


Op Ed:

As the lab leak hypothesis dominates the public conversation, and as the media, U.S. intelligence community and the Biden White House investigate the Wuhan lab, taxpayer-funded animal experimentation — which is opposed by most Americans — occupies center stage in the COVID-19 story.

In January 2020, White Coat Waste Project (WCW) met with the Trump White House to express our concerns about National Institutes of Health (NIH) funding being shipped to foreign countries for animal testing, including China and the Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV) specifically.

Maybe the White House was still digging in — we’re still learning more about the government’s early response to lab leak concerns — but we never heard back other than a cursory “thank you.”

We eventually started contacting reporters and in April 2020, we were first to publicly connect the dots between the Wuhan lab and the NIH. Our exposé revealed how $600,000 in taxpayer funds in the form of NIH subgrants had been funneled to Wuhan by a shady New York-based non-profit for dangerous coronavirus experiments on animals.
