Tell Congress To End Cruel, Wasteful, Taxpayer-funded Animal Experiments
U.S. residents only, please use the form at the bottom of this page to send comments to your U.S. Senators and Representative.
IDA has just released it's 2013 Outragie Awards, which spotlight the Top Ten Most Outrageous Experiments on Animals that are funded by our tax dollars. Among the awardees are:
The Most Outrageously Heartless award went to experimenters at New York University (NYU) who abused tiny newborn rats, exposing them to Abu Ghraib-like conditions, professing to study "child abuse."
The Most Outrageously Superfluous award went to researchers at Yale and the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) who gave massive doses of PCP to monkeys, claiming this made them "schizophrenic," and then gave them a drug already known to treat schizophrenia in humans.
The Most Outrageously Depraved winner went to scientists at Columbia University who used costly genetic engineering to wipe out the sense of smell in mice, and then electro-shocked them and hung them upside-down by their tails with adhesive tape, claiming to study the effect of smell on anxiety.
Send a message to Congress - tell them to provide much stricter oversight for granting money to biomedical research, and to ensure that all NIH-funded experiments comply with its stated mission to enhance human health.
