In the laboratory at the University of Massachusetts Amherst (UMass) obscenity is being carried out masquerading as a scientific experiment that tortures and kills fragile monkeys. The experiment claims to study age-related changes in human cognitive functions associated with menopause.
But here’s the interesting thing: gentle monkeys – which are not originally miniature human beings – never go through menopause, so experimenters have to zoom in on the symptoms to compensate. Please help us put an end to these ridiculous experiments.
Holes in the skulls of the monkeys; Electrodes pierce their bodies
Under the direction of Agnes Lacreuse, experimenters perform invasive operations on female monkeys by implanting electrodes into holes they drill into animal skulls. They then cut open their necks and pass electrode wires from the skull and neck through the abdomen.
Monkeys are usually tied to a locking device to immobilize them, and then they are pushed into a plastic cylinder, which is screwed into place and subjected to the noise of an MRI machine. It is a frightening and confusing experience.
In some tests, these sensitive, social monkeys are left in solitary confinement, which United Nations officials compare to torture being used on humans, just to see how they react.
Flash news: monkeys never get hot flashes
Monkeys don’t have menopause, so Lacrese came up with ways to mimic it. She surgically removes the ovaries of the monkeys and then uses the monkey hand warmers to simulate hot flashes.
You read that right. She wears hand warmers like the ones worn in mittens in January.
This is not science.
Thinking like that won’t even bring a blue ribbon at a fifth-grader science fair, and it’s definitely not the kind of paradigm shift work expected of an adult who, by the way, pulled out over $ 3.8 million in hard-earned taxpayers. money to play scientist.
Just as a window does not replace a door, monkeys pretend that hot flashes cannot shed light on the human condition that animals themselves do not experience. If the development of COVID-19 vaccines has shown us anything, it is that skipping animal experiments can quickly and effectively bring relief to humans. Just use the door and let the window pass.
These experiments hurt monkeys and taxpayers – help end them
After being caged, cut and experimented with monkeys, Lacreuse kills them and dissects their bodies. These experiments represent nothing more than the torment of sensitive monkeys and a disaster for American taxpayers – so far they have cost us nearly $ 4 million and brought UMass a detailed list of quotes for violations of federal animal welfare laws.
