Stop Torturing Monkeys in Laboratory Experiments

Target: Greg Abbott, Governor of Texas

Goal: Don’t let Texas become a breeding ground for suffering lab animals.

As the Covid pandemic rages, China has stopped exporting laboratory monkeys to the United States. Instead of using this as an opportunity to stop animal cruelty in the name of science, the research company Envigo is trying to open a monkey breeding facility in Texas. This disgusting animal factory would breed 30,000 monkeys each year, who would live their lives in metal cages and endure unending torture until they succumb to the final needle.

Regardless of the scientific goal, people should not be exploiting another species for their own cruel purposes. Sign this petition to stop this breeding facility immediately, and end animal torture in medical labs.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Governor Abbott,

You were recently voted the “best governor in the nation” and I am sure you do not hold that accomplishment lightly. Regardless, your state is about to become a breeding ground for mutilation, torture, and death. Envigo is planning on opening a facility to breed up to 30,000 monkeys a year to be used in scientific research.

I urge you not to let this happen. Animals should not be used for laboratory testing, and it is shameful that such a massive operation based on animal cruelty and exploitation is even being considered in the United States.

Do not let Texas become known as the state that encourages animal abuse. Please put an end to this breeding facility immediately.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    Testing on any kind of animal should be made illegal all over the world. Animal testing is cruel, barbaric, torturous, and totally unnecessary. Any products or health issues that scientists want to test & learn more about, should be tested on people, not animals. Leave all animals alone.

    Dear Governor Abbot:
    Some time ago, experiments were done on prisoners who voluntarily submitted to reduce their sentences – why they no longer do so considering that it has been discovered and proven that what is good for an animal could be harmful or simply don’t work for humans. It does makes sense, doesn’t it?
    Thank you!

    Animals, whatever their breed, have as much right to a life which is not broken by evil experiments made by man in the name of science. Please do not allow these animals to be bred to be used for experiments – they are so close to humans in their DNA but that is not the point, they still feel pain, hunger, cold and do not understand what is going on, AND THEN THEY DIE.

  4. This is utterly unacceptable,period. Animals should never be used for experiments! This is dark ages cruelty and it should be banned everywhere for the sake of animal wellbeing.

    The other thing is that if we made products from natural ingredients instead of laboratory chemicals there would be no need for experimentation at all!

    You make me sick for even considering this barbaric, inately cruel torture of these intelligent feeling primates. WTF is wrong with you? Put your sensitivity chip back in and your big girl panties back on and STOP this BS NOW! To Not Do So Would be a Morally & Ethically BANKRUPT Decision on YOUR Part!

  6. More torture? Now that China has stopped importing monkeys to the US America needs to replace the entire program. The program is not effective. There are other solutions. Our scientists should be working on alternative ways to achieve better results. Animals are not humans and can not give the correct biological outcomes. These poor animals receive no interaction with others of their kind, no human touch, no compassion or empathy. Even their cages are empty and void of anything to make them feel more comfortable and less afraid. The question remains … would anyone of us want to live in such a manner? No? Then don’t do it to animals.

    This “HORRIBLE” treatment must stop‼️ Shut them all down ‼️

  8. A monkey breeding facility SHOULD NOT be open. This is beyond evil!!! Scumbags torture monkeys for blood money!!

  9. THIS MONKEY BREEDING FACILITY MUST BE SHUT-DOWN NOW!!!!
    MONKEYS ARE OUR CLOSEST RELATIVES. HOW CAN SOMEONE INFLICT SUCH UNNECESSARY SUFFERINGS ON THESE EXTREMELY INTELLIGENT AND HUMAN-LIKE CREATURES. THE RESULTS OF THIS RESEARCH ARE ALSO DOUBTFUL AND INCORRECT BECAUSE ANIMALS HAVE A DIFFERENT BIOLOGICAL SET-UP THAN HUMANS! PSEUDO-SCIENTISTS CARRYING OUT THIS USELESS RESEARCH ARE NOTHING BUT SADISTIC PSYCHOPATHS. NO NORMAL AND COMPASSIONATE PERSON COULD COMMIT SUCH ATROCITIES AGAINST OUR CLOSEST RELATIVES ON THIS PLANET. THIS IS NOT RESEARCH. THIS A RUTHLESS MASS-EXTERMINATION OF NON-HUMAN SENTIENT BEINGS. I SUGGEST THAT WE DO EXPERIMENTS ON THESE HUMAN PSEUDO-SCIENTISTS INSTEAD! SHAME and DISGRACE ON THE HUMAN RACE!!

    These are precious VOICELESS innocent living individuals. With feelings and hearts and souls!!!! So fucking close to our dna.but you allow sick deranged sociapaths with no hearts or souls to torment and torture them endlessly in wire cages untill they die of unthinkable pain and FEAR. Or from losing there sanity. So called fucking humans arent HUMAN anymore.

    • Greg Abbott, Governor of Texas

      Don’t let Texas become a breeding ground for suffering lab animals.

      I agree with Susan Boyce comment.
      “These are precious VOICELESS innocent living individuals. With feelings and hearts and souls!!!! So fucking close to our dna.but you allow sick deranged sociapaths with no hearts or souls to torment and torture them endlessly in wire cages untill they die of unthinkable pain and FEAR. Or from losing there sanity. So called fucking humans are not HUMAN anymore”.
      They are the monsters on our planet.No precious and innocent animal or Wildlife is safe from the rotten vile and evil nonhuman species.Purely for GREED and the blood money.

  11. Torture the torturers —

  12. Loraine Pretorius says:

    What is incomprehensible to me is how someone can voluntary cause suffering to these poor animals and then watch them in pain. What sort of human does this. How do they sleep at night when they look into their eyes and see their pain and confusion. WHY WHY WHY???? SHAME ON YOU

  13. All animal abusers internationally must have the mandatory death penalty implemented. A slow and agonising death for these4 evil cretins is essential.

  14. We have no right to do this; period. All living beings feel pain, agony mentally and physically as well as hopelessness. Would these “great” scientists want to trade places with these vunerable creatures??!!! These monkeys were meant to be in the wild with their own kind; not tortured in warped experiments inside cold metal cages alone in fear!!!

  15. E johnson says:

    Instead of using helpless animals as subjects use convicted murderers, rapist, child molesters etc. sounds like a win-win for animals and victims

  16. What the hell is wrong with you Texas. No animal was put on this earth to be abused by humans – that includes all of you f*ckers in Texas as well – leave the animals alone and stop all of your in lab breeding programs. These animals do not deserve a life in cages simply because humans want to learn something about them – humans are too god damn stupid to figure anything out. Stop this lab and do it now.

    “Scientists” are very clever people, you know – they are very good at inventing pointless “experiments” that inflict pain and suffering and abuse on animals, because (1) they are all psychopaths who LOVE to inflict pain and abuse on living beings (i.e. just 1 step away from being serial killers); (2) animals are ideal subjects for “experiments” because (unlike humans subjects) animals can’t/don’t fight back; and (3) the most important reason – “scientists” can get massive funding for their “experiments” (because their benefactors don’t have a clue about what the “experiments” are about (but it “looks bad” if they don’t contribute any money to them). So the unemployable (but VERY clever “scientists”) are able to manipulate big businesses and other corporations to continually fund their “experiments”. And (of course) because they are so clever at this manipulation, they NEVER have to get PROPER jobs (like the rest of us have to) because the money just keeps flowing into their pockets, while they indulge in their psychopathic abuse of defenseless animals. But let’s hope the Covid kills most of them.

    Those Poor Monkeys Really don’t Deserve This & Animal Cruelty Needs 2 Stop Permanently & Indefinitely

  19. This is a horrible horrible senseless idea. Please do not let this happen in our country
    What kind of people love hurting animals?
    This is awful

  20. Besa Lapi says:

    Monkeys are living beings with feelings and emotions, They feel pain, sadness, happiness and lonliness. They’re the closest animal to human beings and deserve the most Respect and Love!
