Government Propaganda Misleading the American People Concerning Primate Experimentation
By Michael A. Budkie, A.H.T., Executive Director, SAEN

I. Introduction

Recent reports in the mainstream media have extolled the value of primate experimentation, the need for increases in the funding available for primate experimentation and the number of primates available for such experimentation. However, this call for the extending of primate use in research was based on incomplete and inaccurate information.

This report will demonstrate in detail that the system of primate experimentation is fatally flawed. Systematic problems exist in every facet of the system from the basic area of the maintenance of population statistics by the USDA, to enforcement of the Animal Welfare Act, to environmental enhancement to promote psychological well being of primates, to unnecessary duplication of research.

It is also our intention to disclose the vested interests of the major players in this situation. Primate experimentation is big business in the U.S., with the larger laboratories raking in tens of millions of dollars in federal grants.
