Some Of The World's Most Heinous Lab Experiments On Animals

 


William Shakespeare in Cymbeline (re animal research)

Your highness Shall from this practise but make hard your heart:
Besides, the seeing these effects will be Both noisome and infectious.

“I have from an early age abjured the use of meat, and the time will come when men such as I will look upon the murder of animals as they now look upon the murder of men.”
― Leonardo da Vinci

*
“(We need to find) new ways of testing and experimenting that will not involve the use of live, sentient beings.” “We need to recognize at the outset that what we do to animals from their perspective certainly, and probably from ours, is morally wrong and unacceptable.”

  -Jane Goodall who advocates a Nobel Prize for those who develop nonanimal

research methods

*

• I am not interested to know whether vivisection produces results that are profitable to the human race or doesn't. ... The pain which it inflicts upon unconsenting animals is the basis of my enmity toward it, and it is to me sufficient justification of the enmity without looking further.  — Mark Twain

*

• Vivisection is a social evil because if it advances human knowledge, it does so at the expense of human character.  — George Bernard Shaw

*

• I abhor vivisection with my whole soul.  All the scientific discoveries stained with innocent blood I count as of no consequence.  — Mahatma Gandhi 

*

Mary Shelley, wife of Percy Bysshe Shelley, wrote the book Frankenstein

at age 19. It was her way of expressing opposition to animal research.

*

• In Christian ethics ... animals are seen as mere things. They can therefore be used for vivisection, hunting, coarsing, bull-fights and horse-races and can be whipped to death as they struggle along with their heavy carts of stone. Shame on such a morality that fails to recognise the eternal essence that exists in every living thing and shines forth with inscrutable significance from all eyes that see the sun. — Arthur Schopenhauer,

*

“An ‘American horror story’ is taking place in your agency right now. Your colleague Elisabeth Murray is receiving millions of dollars to torture and experiment on living monkeys.”

-James Cromwell, in voicemails to 10,000 NIH employees

*

 “Having trainees jam hard tubes down cats’ throats, cut holes into pigs’ throats and chests, and stab needles into the animals’ bones and the tissue surrounding their hearts is simply unjustifiable when modern and superior alternatives are available.”

-Lily Tomlin

*

They say dogs are man's best friends. Now meet dogs' worst enemies.  Texas A&M

-Bill Maher- See video link below

 *

If we cut up beasts simply because they cannot prevent us and because we are backing our own side in the struggle for existence, it is only logical to cut up imbeciles, criminals, enemies, or capitalist for the same reasons.
- C S Lewis,


During my medical education at the University of Basel I found vivisection horrible, barbarous, and above all unnecessary.

~ Carl Jung


Every year tens of thousands of animals suffer and die in laboratory tests of cosmetics and household products...despite the fact that the test results do not help prevent or treat accidental or purposeful misuse of the products.

- Woody Harrelson
    
    I abhor vivisection...it should be abolished.  I know of no achievement through vivisection, no scientific discovery, that could not have been obtained without such barbarism and cruelty.  The whole thing is evil.

Dr. Charles Mayo, cofounder of the Mayo Clinic


I despise and abhor the pleas on behalf of that infamous practice, vivisection... I would rather submit to the worst of deaths, so far as pain goes, than have a single dog or cat tortured to death on the pretense of sparing me a twinge or two.
- Robert Browning  

                              

I had bought two male chimps from a primate colony in Holland. They lived next to each other in separate cages for several months before I used one as a [heart] donor. When we put him to sleep in his cage in preparation for the operation, he chattered and cried incessantly. We attached no significance to this, but it must have made a great impression on his companion, for when we removed the body to the operating room, the other chimp wept bitterly and was inconsolable for days. The incident made a deep impression on me. I vowed never again to experiment with such sensitive creatures.
 - Dr Christian Barnard

    

The inhumanity of science concerns me, as when I was tempted to kill a rare snake that I may ascertain its species. I feel that this is not the means of acquiring true knowledge.
                                                               ~ Thoreau, Henry David
    

The medical argument for animal testing doesn’t stand up. Even if it did, I don’t think we should kill other species. We think we’re so much better; I’m not sure we are. I tell people, "We’ve beaten into submission every animal on the face of the Earth, so we are the clear winners of whatever battle is going on between the species. Couldn’t we be generous? I really do think it’s time to get nice. No need to keep beating up on them. I think we’ve got to show that we’re kind.
        ~ McCartney, Paul & Linda

*

 “He who is cruel to animals becomes hard also in his dealings with men. We can judge the heart of a man by his treatment of animals.”

― Emmanuel Kant

*
“The question is not, "Can they reason?" nor, "Can they talk?" but "Can they suffer?”
― Jeremy Bentham

• I abhor vivisection with my whole soul.  All the scientific discoveries stained with innocent blood I count as of no consequence.  

— Mahatma Gandhi 


• Ask the experimenters why they experiment on animals, and the answer is: "Because the animals are like us." Ask the experimenters why it is morally OK to experiment on animals, and the answer is: "Because the animals are not like us." Animal experimentation rests on a logical contradiction.

— Charles R. Magel,

• In Christian ethics ... animals are seen as mere things. They can therefore be used for vivisection, hunting, coarsing, bull-fights and horse-races and can be whipped to death as they struggle along with their heavy carts of stone. Shame on such a morality that fails to recognise the eternal essence that exists in every living thing and shines forth with inscrutable significance from all eyes that see the sun. — Arthur Schopenhauer,


Send love to vivisectors and legislators.. -Sathya Sai Baba guru to millions

  (to speed up laws to stop animal research)

 
 
Billions of animals have been burned, injected with poisons, decapitated, drowned, dismembered, drugged, starved, nailed to research tables, debarked (laryngectomies), exhausted in forced swimming and other experiments, frozen, electrically shocked, confined in restraining chairs or stereotaxic devices, have had their spines, arms or legs broken, their eyes blinded, needled, stitched shut, or constantly kept open for poisonous sprays They have been invaded by piercing noise, exposed to bright light 24 hours a day, lobotomized, deprived of sleep until death. They have died of thirst, of suffocation, of excess heat. They have been isolated, exploited in maternal deprivation studies, used as explosives carriers, shot into space to rotate in the void until their deaths, Pets have been stolen from people's yards for the endless greed and ignorance of the research industrial complex. Dolphins have committed suicide to escape military research. Thousands of human beings are dead or were born deformed because the thalidomide which mutilated them did nothing to dogs

 

If one discounts wars, accidents, famine, natural disasters, cigarettes, alcohol, iatrogenic errors including drug reactions, the majority of the diseases in the world are caused by animal and fish flesh, animal products, insecticides

Tax money is stolen from the citizenry for this barbaric industry which continues despite
the number of humane alternatives from gas chromatographs and the Ames test to computer models.

The prime cause of many diseases is the consumption of animal flesh cadavers but the 'research' establishment is not interested in educating the public about the lethal effects of meat, fish and dairy products.

1 Bethesda Naval Hospital: Primates were chained in restraining chairs for months at a time... legs cramped ... sleeping, urinating, defecating in these chairs

2 Case Western University Dr Robert White made many 2 headed primates, dogs, and cats, none of whom lived more than 2 days

3 Children's Hospital Akron Ohio pigs burned in burn research*

4 Marie de Manacéine, a researcher in czarist Russia, totally deprived puppies of sleep and reported that after several days they died. The most severe lesions she wrote occurred in the brain.

5 Descartes of "I think Therefore I am" nailed dogs' paws to tables so that they could not fight his knife.

6 Emory University, linked to the Centers For Disease Control: cats put in stereotaxic devices.... Frequently sites exposing Emory's torture of animals are hacked.

7 Harvard which for many years received more vivisection dollars than any other university paid poor children a quarter a piece for pets they obtained and asked no questions. Harvard lost Stanley Prusiner and Mervyn Hardinge, discoverer of prions and isocaloric researcher respectively, the former because of Harvard's investment in the meat industry.
William Frist before becoming the Senate majority leader during the G W Bush administration was a Harvard medical student. He pretended to adopt a cat as a pet at an animal shelter, then took him to a Harvard lab, researched on him and killed him.

8 Hardin Medical University China Xiaoping Ren working on monkey head transplants

9 Johns Hopkins University A. Blalock developed a Blalock Press to test how many pounds of pressure a dog's bones could take before breaking

10 NASA Glenn in Cleveland did not inform the public that rather than put a docking collar on the shuttle, hundreds of research animals were placed in the hold, Lke the astronauts, their bodies dropped to their deaths over 5 states. Source: Canadian Broadcasting

11 Ohio State University a course for premed students in breaking mice spines

12 Summa Hospital Human patients were troubled by the cries of dogs coming up through the ventilator shafts of the hospital. Therefore the dogs are now housed in a separate building and given laryngectomies, debarked so that they cannot protest. Dogs in the past jumped to their deaths from the roof to end their suffering.

13 Tufts Univ. broke dogs' legs

14 University of California at Davis For years the San Diego Zoo supplied primates for research to UC Davis until
IPPL.org exposed this.

15 University of Oklahoma: electrocution of dogs

16 University of Pennsylvania rats were forced to swim and then decapitated

17 University of Texas 50,000 research animals, dogs, mice and others... drowned trapped in underground lab cages during a flood .... the captains of this Bastille ship... the researchers... all got out From PETA comes this paragraph about University of Tulane and Louisiana State:
"Thousands of animals were trapped in basement laboratories below sea level during Hurricane Katrina. Tousands of rodents, dogs, rabbits, pigs and primates were euthanized or abandoned at its medical center and main campus. The staff saved only 175 cages containing expensive transgenic mice.Louisiana State University (LSU) also left thousands of lab animals trapped in their cages during Hurricane Katrina. All 8,000 animals, including mice, rats, dogs and monkeys, died.Thousands of terrified animals were abandoned in their cages as the waters rose and electricity failed

18 University of Wisconsin tasering pigs in a contract with the US Justice Dept.

19 US Air Force: John Lilly, whose work with the USAF in training dolphins caused some of the marine mammals to kill themselves by smashing their heads against tank walls, wrote about his decision to leave such research. The movie Day of the Dolphin was one result of his book.

20 USDA Meat Animal Research Center in Clay Center Nebraska: A cow was confined with 6 bulls for 24 hours. She died of her injuries.

21 Voiceless powerless animals have been subjected to sleep deprivation, boiling, suffocation, freezing, electrocution by Frankensteins in 'research' institutions.

22 Philip Morris stuffed thousands of rats into tiny canisters and pumped tobacco smoke directly into their noses six hours a day for 90 consecutive days. The rats were then killed and dissected in order to examine the harm caused to their bodies' PETA

23 From Makechange:
PETA found that mice and rats are being tortured and killed in sexual experiments at Johns Hopkins University. These unfortunate rodents have their sex organs mutilated and electronically stimulated before they are killed. The skin is cut off their penises, which are then subjected to electrical stimulation with electrodes for up to five minutes. These animals then have their penises injected with various chemicals to determine if they can maintain an erection. With the experiments complete, the animals are killed and discarded.

24 Helen and Ruth Jones of the National Catholic Society For Animal Welfare (name changed to Society For Animal Rights) revealed that Detroit auto makers were using captive primates in crash cars.

25 Just as the CIA has hidden its torture files so the labs developing torture techniques on animals are hidden. In normal research in which animals are literally sickened to death,the results of biochemistr developed in agony are skewed... in the same way that the milk of an angry mother, says Yogananda, is not good for her child.

26. Wayne State in Michigan used to confine primates in cars and send them crashing into walls for Detroit car makers. Now they are killing dogs in obsolete heart research.

27  Tens of thousands of animals of several species drowned during Houston floods

... they were underground labs.  (Underground laboratories are built to hide research

on campus as well as to hide the painful cries)

Others:
1
Fort Meade Maryland supplied 4000 monkeys to Battelle of Tennessee. They were sacrificed in weaponized anthrax experiments. The CIA gave Battelle 1 billion dollars for this project. Leonard Horowitz was one of those who exposed the 'research'.
2
Brooks Air Force Base was subjecting primates to radiation. Dr. Don Barnes refused to cooperate with the project. This event became the movie Project X with Matthew Broderick.
3
Oxford University used 190,000 animals in research in 2013. The University of Edinburgh, 241,865 animals in experiments.
4
Former senator Bill Frist of Tennessee while at Harvard Medical School went to a Boston animal shelter and said he wanted to adopt a cat. What he didn't say was that he took him to Harvard Medical School and cut him open.
5
Thomas Edison publicly electrocuted a prisoner whose bones caught on fire, as well as an elephant and dog to demonstrate his invention of the electricity as a form of execution.
6
From humanesociety dot org "In the course of manufacturing Dysport®, an anti-wrinkle treatment, the Ipsen Corporation routinely performs a test known as Lethal Dose 50 Percent. The test involves injecting scores of mice with a powerful toxin in order to determine the dose that will kill 50 percent of the animals. The animals experience nausea and a wave of muscle paralysis, leading to severe distress as they slowly suffocate to death over the course of the three to four day procedure."

Ayub Ommaya smashing rhesus monkey skulls ... animal research funded by NIH
"Much of the science of shaken-baby syndrome dates from the late 1960s, when a neurosurgeon named Ayub Ommaya conducted a brutal animal experiment to figure out how much acceleration it took to cause a head injury. Ommaya took more than 50 rhesus monkeys and strapped each one into a chair mounted on wheels, leaving their heads unsupported. He placed the chair on a 20-foot-long track, and an air-powered piston sent the monkeys zooming into a wall. Fifteen emerged with some kind of cerebral hemorrhage. Eight of those also had injuries to the brain stem or cervical cord."

Univ of Pennsylvania cutting out puppy eyes
"Gerardo L. Paez, a former postdoctoral fellow at the University of Pennsylvania (UPenn) School of Veterinary Medicine, spent years using taxpayer money to breed puppies to have a gene that causes progressive retinal atrophy, a degenerative eye disease that culminates in blindness. During one study, 3-week-old beagle puppies were killed after they had their eyes cut out and dissected. "

The VA, CDC, NIH, USDA, Brooks Air Force Base, the national primate research centers, and

many other government agencies engage in lab animal torture..
The US Govt is currently torturing countless animals of many species. Those experiments which
have ignited the most opposition are done on dogs.

St Jude Hospital has over 20,000 research animals and has spent billions on tv ads.. but has never used airtime to inform the public that meat, fish, eggs and dairy are the number 1 cause of childhood cancers. Intestinal cancer is highest in countries with the highest meat consumption. Stomach cancer is especially high in Japan and countries eating much fish. Prostate, ovarian, cervical, breast and uterine cancers are linked to dairy products, eggs, and meat from animals forcibly injected with female growth hormones.

CSpan continued to promote animal research on February 7 2019 with a guest from the Kaiser Family Foundation.

Jennifer Anniston, Tom Hanks, and Reese Witherspoon all appeared on a tv telethon which raised money for animal torture The group was Stand Up To Cancer. Once again there was no mention of consumption of meat, fish, eggs and dairy
as the prime cause of cancer.


Donald Trump, Mitch McConnell, Trump regime nominated heads of NIH, CDC, the Pentagon, Nancy Pelosi, Joe Biden, Michael Bloomberg, CSpan, NPR, MSNBC, CBS...all are big pushers of $ for animal research. Who among them have said not to feed pieces of the rotting cadavers of slaughtered animals to your children?


METHODS OF MOUSEKILLING IN THE WORLD'S LABS

Some suffocate them in plastic bags.
Other use little mouse sized
guillotines, advertised in
vivisection supply magazines.
Still others break their necks.
The sadistic feed them to snakes.
Those in denial delegate the task.
Some mice are needled to death.
Some are given poison.
Some die with their tiny fingers
caught in mouse traps.
Some die in agony after having
cancer or caustic chemicals
introduced into their bodies
.. or in forced sleeplessness
or forced swimming experiments
.. or having had their limbs
cut off.

Just fuck it. Yes, fuck this
And fuck that.
Fuck everything.
Fuck Harvard, Yale
And Princeton.
Fuck poetry. Fuck genius.
Fuck the stars and constellations,
Just go fuck yourself
With your exuberance
And charm,
Just fuck it, say no more
And no less
Than fuck this shit.
Too many fucking moments
Were spent
Inside a mental prison
Admiring some fucker’s
Fucking words
Of unfuckable proportions --
Fuck galaxies and the Milky Way,
Fuck the Big Dipper,
(And the Little Dipper too)
Fuck wars and peace,
Fuck slavery, fuck education,
Political correctness,
Religion and the law,
Fuck the unfuckable fathoms
Of fuckability,
Fuck thousand times
Profoundly and beautifully
The holy fucks of Islam,
Judaism and Christianity --
Just fuck it --
Fucking motherfuckers --
Say something fucking
Meaningful for once,
Like fuck it all
Cause in the end
It makes
No fucking

EDUCATE YOUR HEART

Folder: 
LIFE

EDUCATE YOUR HEART

Once when you were young you went to school

Your good parents thought you were not a fool

From Kindergarten to Harvard maybe

Without a scar entering life‘s society

Empty pockets never held anyone back.

Only empty heads will take up the slack

Speak from the heart people will listen

A loving heart will in wisdom glisten

Blessed hearts bend never break always be fit

But if you can’t put your heart in it get out of it

A woman’s head is always influenced by her heart

But a man's heart is always influenced by his head

Follow your inner heart it helps then the world moves in

And be true to yourself your bosom would be without sin

Knock and ask your heart what it doth know

It’ll beat in the rhythm in music not for show

How much the heart can really hold no one knows

For at any age it has no wrinkles and it never shows

The way to God is through a human heart for a start

For all music is important if it comes from the heart

Remember how happy you were meek and mild

‘cause your heart was pure and simple as a child

Why is peace, grace and contentment come to some

If you’ve inner awareness a grateful heart will come

Look at every path closely and deliberately.

Try it as many times as you think necessary

Ask yourself, this question and yourself alone

"Does this path have a heart or a good tone?”

If it does, then the path is good.

If it doesn't, it’s like rotten wood

They teach how to get results in your exams

Some are honest but some resort to scams

Even the good teachers don’t teach you life sense

Especially if you don’t show any common sense

You are left with nice rainbows in your head

As you watch the boob tube until you’re red

They put the cart before the donkey

And throw you in a murky society

But whenever or before you ever depart

They should’ve tried to educate your heart
