Stop Using Monkeys in Cruel Research


Target: Marc Tessier-Lavigne, President of Stanford University

Goal: End the use of monkeys in research at Stanford University.

One of the nation’s top schools, Stanford University, continues to use monkeys in its research and experiments despite knowing these intelligent animals can experience pain and fear just like humans. It is time this university end it’s use of monkeys in the laboratory.

Recently, a monkey was “accidentally” burned on her face because of a heat lamp. The second-degree burns were apparently caused by carelessness. The heating lamp was used for light instead of a regular lamp. Unfortunately, “accidents” like this are not uncommon.

Sign this petition to demand Stanford stop using monkeys in its research. There are many available methods today that do not involve animals.


Dear Mr. Tessier-Lavigne,

Recently, researchers at your university used a heat lamp instead of a regular lamp in order to see. This carelessness caused second-degree burns on a monkey’s face. It is time to retire your monkeys and begin using methods that do not involve animals.

Unfortunately, accidents like this are not uncommon. Monkeys, just like humans, experience pain and fear. These intelligent and social animals should not be imprisoned and treated like a petri dish any longer, especially when other methods are available.

Please consider switching to non-animal methods. Thanks to today’s incredible advancements in technology, there are many ways to conduct research without harming animals.

    In this the 21st century man has the technology to carry out research and NOT ABUSE any living creature. There has to be a global ban on the abuse of ALL creatures. Man does not have the right to subject any living creature to tortuous cruelty.

    And it’s so, so right that the humans are dying more a more for cancers and other ills as this the best God’s punishment for the antrocities commited by humans on the poor innocent animals….
    So the more human’s painful deaths the better to start wake up and to have seen what we are doing for horrible things towards to animals…
