They Desparately Need YOUR HELP NOW!

November 13, 2008

Oregon Health and Science University (OHSU) experimenter Eliot Spindel has been killing infant monkeys in nicotine studies for 24 years. But that’s not enough for him–Spindel has a ticket to ride the federally-funded gravy train and continue these needless experiments until 2012. Please Take Action to urge OHSU and National Institutes of Health (NIH) officials to end funding for Spindel’s experiments, and to redirect tax dollars into useful efforts to help people stop smoking and to keep young people from ever starting

Cruel is the only way to describe the actual experiments Spindel conducts on female monkeys who are impregnated and subjected to multiple surgeries to implant nicotine pumps in their backs. The monkeys endure multiple surgeries as the pumps must be changed up to five times during their pregnancies. Steady doses of nicotine are delivered to the pregnant monkeys and their babies are cut out of their wombs at various stages of development in order to dissect their lungs.
