To Airlines That Still Transport Primates For Torture:
During World War II the same experiments that are now conducted on primates were done on human prisoners of war. Banning the practice was the only correct action to take. These torturers however, found another target–those who have no say in what happens to them: all the other animals on the planet. Nothing good will come from these experiments. Chemicals still kill humans, pharmaceuticals still kill humans, pesticides in our food still cause cancer in humans, environmental gases, molds and fungi still damage the brains of humans. E-Coli and salmonella still cause illness in humans who ingest them. Seasonal influenza still kills hundreds of thousands of humans every year, even when vaccinated against them.
These experiments are done in the name of flawed science.
Its time to stop doing what we’ve always done simply because we’ve always done it.
When we lose our conscience, we lose on every front.
It’s time for science to evolve by respecting all life, instead of designating who they’ll torture and slaughter in the name of protecting one group deemed superior to all others. And it’s time for airlines to stop facilitating the torture by delivering the victims to their torturers.
I find it odd that scientists torture those beings whom they claim we evolved from. Essentially, we’re still torturing humans.
Please join leading airline companies, including Cathay Pacific, Delta Airlines, American Airlines, and Aer Lingus, and adopt a formal policy prohibiting the transport of primates destined for laboratories to ensure that your company plays no role in the suffering of these animals.
Thank you for your consideration.
