Citing WCW exposé, lawmakers challenge NIH about monkey fear factory

Just a week after White Coat Waste Project released never-before-seen videos of NIH bureaucrats wasting tax dollars to give monkeys brain damage and torment them with toy snakes and spiders, powerful Democrat and Republican lawmakers are demanding answers.

As first reported by NBC News, a bipartisan coalition of U.S. Congressmembers including Brendan Boyle (D-PA), Brian Mast (R-FL), Lucille Roybal-Allard (D-CA), Matt Gaetz (R-FL) and Dina Titus (D-NV) has fired off a letter about the “disturbing taxpayer-funded experiments” to NIH Director Francis Collins. Citing WCW’s investigation and FOIA lawsuit, the lawmakers express “serious concerns about whether this questionable research deserves continued support from Congress and taxpayers” and request cost details and other information.

The lawmakers’ missive follows historic legislation signed into law in December 2019 directing the NIH to report to Congress on efforts to reduce and replace primate tests. Relatedly, Reps. Boyle and Gaetz have pressured the Food and Drug Administration to end primate tests, Reps. Titus and Mast have led efforts to end primate, dog and cat testing at the Department of Veterans Affairs, and Rep. Roybal-Allard has been the leading voice pressing the NIH to cut primate testing.

Tax day is around the corner. Is scaring monkeys with toy spiders how you want your money spent? Tell your lawmakers that you don’t want to pay for cruel and absurd monkey experiments!

White Coats: Please put these pictures on the internet…..just like the turtle that had a plastic straw stuck up its nose. If more people can see this, change will happen faster. ALSO, pleas send these videos to Kim Kardashian if you can. Ask her to do what she can to help. She can make things happen. You need to use drastic measures to get these primates released. Donald Trump likes to be around famous people. If K.Kardashian approaches him, he can sign some bills. PLEASE get these videos out to the general public.

This is disgusting, stop it immediately, you all should be ashamed. How do you live with yourselves?
