NIH experimenter Elisabeth Murray saws open monkeys’ heads and either injects toxins into their brain to burn brain cells or vacuums out parts of it—and then locks them in cages and intentionally terrifies them with rubber spiders and snakes. PETA used the Freedom of Information Act to obtain 43 hours of never-before-seen video footage of Murray’s twisted “emotional responsiveness” tests. NIH has given Murray more than $36 million to fund experiments like these over the span of 30 years, despite their zero human-relevant results. These tests help no one, and they wouldn’t be ethical even if they did. Animals are individuals who have personalities, perspectives, and free will and want to avoid pain and suffering, just as humans do. Treating sentient beings like lab equipment is inexcusable. Animals aren’t ours to use. We’re all being forced to pay for animals to be tortured in laboratories while we wait for treatments that aren’t coming. People are dying because they’re unable to afford healthcare. Nurses exposed to COVID-19 are forced to reuse single-use personal protective equipment (PPE). Students are drowning in debt. And mental health is a national crisis. Meanwhile, NIH—the primary health agency in the U.S.—in squandering billions of taxpayer dollars every year on cruel, archaic, fake-science animal experiments instead of solving actual problems. - PETA 

Take action. This physical and psychological abuse towards these monkeys are being funded by the NIH, instead of using that money to help with the growing COVID-19 crisis, or the millions in need of healthcare. These animals are suffering and dying. They still feel fear and pain. Just because they don’t have the words to speak up, doesn’t mean they should be subjected to such torture. We are their voice. Ask yourself, would you want to go through this?
