ACT NOW: NIH is Wasting a Chance to Create Change for Primates


Action Alert


Following PETA’s successful campaign to shut down the National Institutes of Health’s (NIH) experiments on baby monkeys, several forward-thinking members of Congress made it a requirement for NIH to „conduct a review of its ethical policies and processes“ related to the use of nonhuman primates in experiments. In response, NIH announced that it would be organizing a workshop on September 7 for that purpose.

However, a draft of the agency’s workshop agenda has now been published, and it’s quite clear that the event will be dedicated to explaining why experiments on monkeys are necessary and why current oversight practices are good enough to protect the primates involved in experiments.

It’s time for an honest conversation about the suffering of primates in laboratories.
