Pregnant monkeys injected with nicotine

October 27, 2013 Leave a comment Go to comments

Day after day, pregnant monkeys were injected with nicotine to cause birth defects.

The babies were cut from their mothers’ wombs, attached to machines that measure lung function, and then killed so that experimenters could dissect their tiny lungs—and it was all done on their first and only day in the world. The mothers were repeatedly impregnated and forced to endure this horror over and over.

Smoking kills. We’ve known it for decades, but the Oregon National Primate Research Center (ONPRC) continues to conduct these horrible taxpayer-funded experiments!

Cruel experiments such as these MUST end. Please help by making a gift today, and it will be matched dollar for dollar, up to $500,000.There are only four days left!

These irrelevant and cruel experiments are still going on for two reasons: Most members of the public don’t know about them, and many people don’t realize that there are alternatives. But PETA is working to change this status quo.

Our groundbreaking undercover investigations have exposed abuses at hellholes such as ONPRC, where thousands of monkeys are forced to live in tiny cages, as they sit in terror and writhe in pain. PETA also funds and promotes the development and acceptance of tests that are cheaper, faster, and more accurate than experiments on animals ever were.

There are so many victims of the cruel experimentation industry:

  • Cats who have their heads cut open and electrodes attached to their brains
  • Dogs who are force-fed massive amounts of drugs, chemicals, and pesticides
  • Pigs who have third-degree burns inflicted on them with scorching metal rods

Plus, tens of millions of rabbits, mice, rats, guinea pigs, and other animals are poisoned, mutilated, and killed in laboratories every year.

By educating and mobilizing the public against these barbaric acts as well as working with researchers to find humane ways to conduct experiments and ensure product safety, PETA saves animals’ lives. Animals trapped in laboratories right now are counting on you to help save them.

    I agree — horrific! Humans are capable of the most egregious acts!
