For years, the White Coat Waste Project (WCW) has been investigating how thousands of primates bred and confined on Fauci’s Monkey Island in South Carolina are shipped to National Institutes of Health (NIH) laboratories for deadly maximum pain experiments. NIH’s Monkey Island warehouses over 3,600 primates destined for abuse in NIH’s taxpayer-funded labs.
Back in 2021, we even visited Monkey Island with Congresswoman Nancy Mace (R-SC), who represents the district where it is located.
A successful WCW lawsuit recently secured photos and videos showing dangerous and cruel maximum pain COVID and Ebola experiments on primates inside the NIH’s controversial Rocky Mountain Laboratory (RML) in Montana, which sources animals from Monkey Island.
Now, citing WCW’s recent lawsuit victory and investigation, Rep. Mace is demanding answers from the NIH.
In her letter to NIH Director Monica Bertagnolli, Rep. Mace writes:
“I have become aware of disturbing videos, photographs, and other documents obtained by the non-profit White Coat Waste Project through a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit against the NIH that detail RML’s cruel experiments with COVID and other viruses on primates obtained from Morgan Island. Records show that in many cases, these animals are subjected to pain and distress, and pain relief is intentionally withheld.”
Mace, a member of the House Committee on Oversight and Accountability, demands details on how much taxpayer money has been spent to maintain Monkey Island, as well as a list of NIH spending on all experiments—including any gain-of-function tests — conducted on primates shipped from the island to RML and other NIH laboratories.
Rep. Mace isn’t alone in her concern about wasteful spending on Monkey Island. In his recent Festivus waste report, Senator Rand Paul cited WCW’s investigations and called out the NIH for wasting over $30 million at Monkey Island in recent years.
A huge shout-out to the White Coat Waste Project for their tireless efforts. We stand united in demanding answers and advocating for innocent animals subjected to agonizing tests, displaying a callous disregard for their pain at the hands of the NIH.https://t.co/lOnBYQO2bY

Is this how you want your money spent?
Tell Congress to cut funding for cruel and dangerous virus experiments on primates!
