STOP testing on ALL animal testing, if need be test on your own children if you have to test on “something that is alive. We were not put on this earth to kill……

For these squirrel monkeys at last they will be able to live in peace after the horrendous animal testing that has been inflicted upon them in the name of science. Now what about all the other animals tortured every day? It is time to change to the many humane tests that are available and stop abusing animals.

How very cruel..you people who were involved in this horrid study should be ashamed of yourselves.
What horror. I’m disgusted.

Why do they.think they can do this? Let’s not put them back in office. The animals always come FIRST!

Please stop all animal testing immediately.

These inhumane experiences are unnecessary w despicable

Total disgrace how can you subject animals for nonsense lab test

Stop

Stop!
