I like what Alice Cooper had to say about animal testing

" Im against animal testing for like makeup and hair spray and stuff, its not like we really need a new formula of it so they should use paid volunteers for that. Now when it comes to actual like medications and curing diseases if hooking a monkeys brain up to a car battery is gonna cure AIDS or cancer all I have to say is red is positive and black is negative"

Yea, but what about that fine print? Does that include other species of primate? Because these guys also use various species of monkeys to conduct research.

I hate to be the one to be a downer, but as much as animal research is apparently needed. They do use other kinds of monkies in their research. Removing chimps is like a drop in the bucket.

And that still won't prevent researchers whom utilize local university research labs from co opting a few of their chimps and or primates for experiments. It is not exactly unknown for a government researcher to also hold positions with other private labs and university labs while working for the federal government.

Still reduced reliance in some labs on primates is a good thing. Even though in the long run there are quite a few loopholes in the whole announcement.

It's offensive when you compare black people to chimps. It was used as rationale fire some horrific acts of racism, not to mention black people share a closer skin tone and facial features with primates than white folk.

What you did there, I see it.
