Demand Government Stop Funding Cruel Animal Experiments

Target: Francis S. Collins, Director of National Institutes of Health

Goal: Stop the National Institutes of Health from funding the cruel experiments performed at the University of Pittsburgh.

Over the years, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) has given millions of dollars to the University of Pittsburgh (Pitt) to fund cruel and barbaric experiments on innocent dogs, cats, mice, rats, rabbits, monkeys, and other animals in the name of scientific research. 

An animal rights organization went undercover to expose what these animals endure behind the scenes. According to the investigative report, monkeys were kept alone in small cages where they reportedly displayed symptoms of stress, such as rocking and pacing. According to eyewitness reports, rabbits had their ligaments cut and their legs contorted into extremely painful, unnatural positions. In addition, mice and rats were allegedly severely neglected. Eyewitnesses claimed countless mice and rats died from dehydration and drowning due to malfunctioning water systems. There was even a claim that one employee put live mice into a plastic bag to let them suffocate.

Sign this petition and demand that the NIH stop funding these cruel experiments. These animals are suffering unimaginable horrors and the results very rarely result in any benefit for human health.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Dr. Collins,

For years, the NIH has been giving money to the University of Pittsburgh (Pitt) in order to fund research that subjects innocent animals to unimaginable horrors. An animal rights organization went undercover to expose the agony these laboratory animals endure, and in doing so created a compelling case against funding this cruel form of research.

The undercover investigation revealed what appears to be blatant cruelty and neglect. Mice and rats were allegedly left to die from drowning or dehydration due to a malfunctioning water system. Rabbits supposedly had their ligaments cut and their limbs bent into unnatural positions, causing them agonizing pain. Monkeys were reportedly kept in total isolation, where they seemed desperate for physical contact.

These animals experience fear and pain, just like humans do. These experiments are cruel and very rarely result in anything that is beneficial to human health. Please consider no longer funding Pitt’s cruel experiments.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  1. It has been painfully obvious AND proven for years now that these animal research labs are VICIOUS towards their ‘subjects’ of research and do NOT at all follow even the deficient laws in place SUPPOSEDLY governing treatment of animals so used (and tortured). And anyone in the know is already aware the NIH is plain EVIL as well, and cannot be entrusted with anything. “Health,” my a** — that’s the LAST thing the NIH is interested in, much LESS the “health” of the animal torture they fund and uphold.

    Anyone in the know is ALSO aware that animal testing/research (even the bulk of what’s perpetrated to AID some animals, e.g. much veterinary “research”) has ALWAYS been a bogus snow-job the public was fed, and has only been in place to keep jobs for what, basically, are flawed, psychopathic humans who are oblivious to (or even enjoy) causing pain to other living beings, and to keep the monolithic ‘health’ organizations (also being proven useless over the decades, with no CURES for ANYTHING after all these decades), and their cohorts, afloat.

    For just a small portion of the truth, see:

    All such labs should be SHUT DOWN, period, for the gross, modern torture chambers that they SOLELY are.

    testing on these innocent animals is BARBARIC- Immediately move them to sanctuaries and then do the testing on the lab . tech.s and let THEM feel the suffering and pain!

  3. Carolyn Taylor says:

    Stop this cruel animal testing, now!

  4. STOP MAKING HORRENDOUS ANIMAL TORTURE LEGAL!!!!!!!!!!!
    WTF IS WRONG WITH THESE FUCKING IDIOTS DOING THIS EVIL SHIT, THIS IS ILLEGAL!!! DO SOMETHING ABOUT YOU SPINELESS EVIL CORRUPT GOVERNMENTS!!!!
    R.I.P ALL ANIMALSXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX
    ALL THESE VILE HUMAN SCUM WILL BURN IN HELL!!!!!!!

    These experiments have nothing to do with “health”. They lead me to question the mental/emotional health of the experimenters and their lab techs, actually. There must be a lot of pressure to publish at this institution.

  6. FOR ALL OF THESE INSANE AND INHUMANE BREED SOMEONE FORGOT MAIN THINGS IN HUMANES EDUCATION.
    WHO IS IT?

    ALL OF THAT  BARBARIC  MUD AND RESPONSIBLE  NONPERSONS  ARE ONLY SENSELESS FOR ALL OTHER TERRESTRIALS – RECYCLE THEM  TO ALLIGATORS – THE SINGLE MEANING OF THESE SCUM!

    Stop & pursue this criminal rabble and this deformity  –  instantly!

    We need to start funding experiments on the ‘animals’ who torture the helpless creatures in this world. Think of all the benefits-they’re humans (I think) so they’ve got human DNA which is what you need, they need to be tortured, and you can kill 2 birds with 1 stone because now you can do research to identify what’s wrong with their DNA to make them so horrible.

  8. Francis – I am a law-abiding citizen; I earn my own living with no help from the Government and I pay my taxes every year. However, I DO NOT agree to my hard earned tax dollars funding cruel experiments on animals at the University of Pittsburgh. The Animal Kingdom are citizens of this Earth too and they have just as much a right as we do to live their lives on this planet free from torture, murder, confinement and experiment at the hands of humans. Please use your power and position to stop these atrocities; show the world that ALL LIFE on this planet must be respected, not just human life…

    Useless pieces of sh!t💩❗😠
    Signed & shared 😡

  10. Denise Devereux says:

    Stop Animal Torture. We all have to die of something.
    From the way the world is we need culling of people not animals.
    You have done enough experiments by now to have made some progress.

    STOP PLAYING GOD!
