Watch chimps being freed

Many chimps who have been used in American research experiments are being retired. Some of the chimps in this video are going outside for the first time since they entered the lab. Some “retired” chimps need to take anti-depressants. I’m not surprised.

Chimps aren’t the only animals who suffer in human laboratories. Click here to learn about effective alternatives to animal testing and click here to find products that aren’t tested on animals.

Should we ban tests on animals?

“Ask the experimenters why they experiment on animals, and the answer is: ‘Because the animals are like us.’ Ask the experimenters why it is morally okay to experiment on animals, and the answer is: ‘Because the animals are not like us.’ Animal experimentation rests on a logical contradiction.”
– Charles R. Magel

Binghamton Speech and Debate Team is hosting an online debate on April 14, 2013, regarding the idea of the U.S. Government banning all testing that requires the use of animals. The team is now sponsored by PETA and is looking for more sponsors. I’m so happy to see PETA putting their considerable skills and resources into supporting things like this.
