Urge Feds to Cut Funding for Cruel Experiments at UCSF

The University of California-San Francisco (UCSF)—which receives half a BILLION dollars a year in taxpayer funds for research—has a 15-year history of violating animal welfare laws and abusing mice, monkeys, and other animals in its labs. This resulted in a $92,500 fine– one of the largest ever — for the university in 2005.  Newly obtained documents prove that the abusive and neglectful conditions have not changed. National Institutes of Health (NIH) policies require facilities receiving taxpayer money to abide by animal welfare laws and guidelines as a condition of their receiving grants, but UCSF continues to receive taxpayer money for animal experimentation in spite of violating these provisions. Contact the NIH and demand that they stop taxpayer funding for animal experimentation at UCSF.

About Franziska

I've been a vegetarian for almost 30 years now, since adopting my first dog, and vegan for more than 10. Why? The simplest and truest answer is that I love animals, and knowing what happens to them just to satisfy selfish human desires makes consuming any animal products impossible. I am a NARN Board member because its goals, beliefs, and ethics are mine, and because nothing is ever done that doesn't have only the animals at heart. There are no politics, no factions, no arguments, no personal motives. As for my favorite quote, it is beyond a doubt Ralph Waldo Emerson's "The purpose of life is not to be happy. The purpose of life is to be useful. To be useful, compassionate, honorable, and to have it matter that you lived."
