NIH Needs to Create Transgender Monkeys to Research HIV

As reported on January 10, Anthony Fauci’s institute on the Nationwide Institutes of Well being (NIH) is—as soon as once more—losing taxpayer cash and harming animals. This time, it’s making an attempt to create transgender monkeys. PETA has found that the Nationwide Institute of Allergy and Infectious Ailments funded (to the tune of $205,562) a proposed experiment that may topic male rhesus macaques to feminizing hormone remedy to see whether or not that makes them extra inclined to HIV, purportedly to assist transgender ladies. However fairly than holding a correct scientific examine with keen human sufferers that may yield related data, these experimenters have determined to make use of monkeys, who can’t develop into contaminated with HIV. It’s simply dangerous science to counsel that dosing monkeys with feminizing medicine makes them good stand-ins for people.

This examine is not going to assist forestall or deal with HIV and won’t assist transgender ladies.

Monkeys don’t get HIV, and after 40 years, tons of of 1000’s of useless monkeys, billions of {dollars}, and no vaccines available on the market, you’d suppose NIH would put funds into one thing that may truly work and will assist people. Proper now, so little cash goes to analysis on well being points for girls (each cis and transgender) that throwing away greater than $200,000 is unethical in addition to merciless.

That is yet one more pointless, wasteful monkey torture experiment, and it’s simply as silly as these carried out by NIH experimenter Elisabeth Murray, who brain-damages monkeys after which frightens them with plastic snakes and spiders. NIH and its institutes must fund fashionable, animal-free analysis—comparable to organs-on-chips and synthetic intelligence—and cease tormenting animals.

hiv experiments on "transgender" monkeys in NIH are pointless

PETA has already requested Fauci to finish HIV experiments on monkeys and as a substitute use human-relevant, cutting-edge strategies.
