A number of high profile organizations and individuals have publically called for a stop to this project. Indeed, Scientific American has reported that The Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM), based in Washington, D.C. has sent an appeal to NASA’s administrator urging that this project be suspended.
I urge everyone to write to their elected representatives urging that action be taken to stop the spending of public funds on the torture of these animals in this cruel experiment. Any kind of animal experimentation is abhorrent to me. My human and I take pains to avoid purchasing products from companies that use animal testing. It sickens me that my human is being forced to fund animal torture. She has already contacted her representatives to protest.
And in addition to written protest, this week we will purrrrrrrrrr.
Please stop by and visit the Confucius Cat’s Blog, he is after all, our fearless leader on the Purrs 4 Peace project.
The appointed time for Week 34 is Sunday, January 31, 2010. Participants should purr for three minutes commencing at 3:00 p.m.. EDT (U.S.) which is 8:00 p.m. (20:00 hrs.) BST in the U.K. The cat’s human staff should assist their cats with the project by stroking and nuzzling the cat at the appointed time.
It's just downright cruel. We need to care for animals and our planet.
That is real sad that humans could do that!!
Brian tens uma cama nova????
Tens um novo amigo????Macaquinho!!!!
It's so sad that 1.75 million wasn't put towards curing cancer rather then causing it in innocent animals. So very sad.
That money could and should have been used for good=yes, Catherine, like a cancer cure…It is really horrible what people do to animals.
Well, how are they going to be able to study the outcome…it seems there would be detrimental problems to the monkeys if they get three years worth at one time, as opposed to over the three year period that a human in space would. Craziness for sure!
