Buzz Petition

Unfortunately, animal abuse runs rampant in society, found everywhere from puppy mills and backyard slaughter operations to factory farms and laboratories. Although animal rights activists have been fighting against animal testing in laboratories for many decades, not everyone realizes that taxpayers’ hard-earned money is being used to fund cruel animal tests.

According to a petition on Care2, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) gives billions of dollars annually to universities who conduct cruel animal tests. Some of the worst schools funded are responsible for heinous acts of cruelty, like the University of Minnesota – which has been found in violation of federal animal-care agreements over five dozen times in just a two-and-a-half year time frame. One practice in particular at the university’s labs involved drawing blood from behind the eyes of rodents without any painkillers. Despite all this, the school is still given government funds.

Why is this allowed to happen? As the petition explains, even though rats and mice make up 95 percent of lab animals, there are no federal laws to protect them, meaning essentially anything can be done to these animals without labs receiving any type of ramification.

If you are outraged your taxes are funding these labs, please take a moment to sign this petition addressed to the NIH demanding immediate change to this practice.

And PLEASE share this with your network to increase awareness and support for this very serious issue.

The U.S. government is making U.S. citizen pay taxes in order that university students at the UNIVERSITY OF MINNESOTA torture animals in their "experiments!!!!!!".

Thanks to this WORLDWIDE PETITION, we demand that the National Institutes of Health (NIH) STOPS GIVING BILLIONS OF DOLLARS TO UNIVERSITIES WHO TORTURE AND SLAUGHTER ANIMALS IN ORDER TO "EXPERIMENT".

THIS IS 2017 NIH PEOPLE. wake up. There are computers now and technology. USE THEM.

I BET ALL OF YOU NIH BIG "DECISION MAKERS!!!!" ARE HAPPY YOU WERE NOT BORN ANIMALS AND HELD CAPTIVE AT YOUR BLOODY LABS AT THE UNIVERSITY OF MINNESOTA OR ANY OTHER BLOODY UNIVERSITY THAT RUN SIMILAR CRUEL TESTS. You too would have your blood drawn from behind your eyes without any painkillers.

WHY IS THE U.S. GOVERNMENT STILL FUNDING THE NATIONAL INSTITUTES OF HEALTH/ANIMAL TORTURING and SLAUGHTERING?????????????????
