Elizabeth Kucinich has been a vocal supporter of the Rockville 15, a group of 15 chimps that were likely bred in violation of the NIH’s moratorium on breeding. Right now, they are being held in two research facilities, one of which has been under investigation after three decomposing monkey bodies were found trapped in a metal shoot on its premises.
Beyond this heartbreaking cruelty, recent reports have shown that experimentation on chimps is NOT useful to scientists developing cures for human diseases. So why are taxpayers still paying for chimps to be abused and held in captivity? It makes no sense.
Please, please sign this petition to transfer these gentle, intelligent creatures to a sanctuary.
