STOP UNETHICAL CHIMPANZEE TESTING

This petition had 171 supporters


Despite sharing 98% of our DNA & many human traits, including emotions ranging from joy to sadness & fear, despite being our closest living relatives with brains so sophisticated that they can do problems on computer touchpad's faster than secondary school students, scientists are performing unethical testing on Chimpanzee's at the Texas Biomedical Research Institute in search of finding cures for human diseases.

Chimpanzees are being infected, darted, sedated more than 100 times, & put through dozens of sometimes painful procedures, repeatedly for years sometimes causing seizures. They are being kept in captivity, often "stockpiled unless one day needed".

It is my belief that the experiments being conducted by the Texas Biomedical Research Institute are not morally or scientifically justified to save human lives.

"Whether a Chimp gets to retire is entirely up to the labs and the government. There is no ethical standard or uniform criteria" LET'S CHANGE THIS

Thank you for your support!
