White Coat Waste Ends US Government Monkey Torture Experiment
September 20, 2021
Hosted by Jane Velez-Mitchell
White Coat Waste, a non-profit dedicated to ending useless and tortuous taxpayer-funded experiments by the U.S. government, has scored a major victory that will end unimaginable suffering for many primates. as WCD puts it, "A scathing July 2019 internal Veterans Administration report obtained by WCW via the Freedom of Information Act found that the Minneapolis VA was abusing monkeys by restricting water to primates for extensive periods of time and not keeping track of how long! Additionally, the VA found that laboratory staff didn’t know how to prepare, label, or store the PCP that was being given to the primates." You read that right... our government was injecting primates with PCP, AKA ANGEL DUST! But here's the GOOD NEWS we will discuss in this broadcast. WCW reports, "Last year, the project was extended for several more years and approved to use even more monkeys, but we’ve just uncovered that the experiments were ended early. Army veteran and Waste Warrior Rep. Brian Mast (R-FL), who has been leading efforts to cut wasteful VA animal testing, confirmed the win directly with the VA." Here's the petition you can sign, joining thousands of other caring citizens to end this barbaric practice forever: https://bit.ly/3hMQAqp There's more good news out of Europe regarding animal experimentation. LiveKindly reports: "The European Parliament adopted a resolution vote calling for the European Commission to develop a definitive action plan to bring an end to lab animal testing. This should clearly identify key milestones and targets in order to ensure and incentivize meaningful progress." The plan to transition away from animal testing to ethical, more effective, more modern methods was adopted by an overwhelming majority! Are we seeing the beginning of the end of the medieval practice of animal experimentation? Let's find out now. JaneUnChained.com's Jane Velez-Mitchell conducts this fascinating interview.
