NIAID Performs ‘Excruciating Experiments’
Lord, give us discernment with this new information. Thank you that you are a God of clarity.
A group that investigates taxpayer-funded experiments on animals has disclosed a document exposing the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases’ (NIAID) “excruciating experiments” on rhesus monkeys.
The monkeys, which are owned by NIAID, are acquired from Morgan Island off the coast of Beaufort, South Carolina.
Justin Goodman, vice president of advocacy and public policy for the White Coat Waste Project (WCWP), told The Epoch Times that the nonprofit taxpayer watchdog group obtained the document in October through the Freedom of Information Act, revealing that the NIAID has spent $13.5 million in taxpayer funding on experiments that involve injecting monkeys with various infectious diseases such as Ebola and the Lassa virus that result in hemorrhaging, pain, brain damage, loss of motor control, and organ failure.
Dr. Anthony Fauci is the director of NIAID, a division of the National Institute of Health (NIH), itself a part of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). . . .
WCWP recently exposed the NIAID’s experiments on beagles that involved having sandflies eat the dogs alive, as well as experiments that involved force-feeding 44 beagle puppies an experimental drug before killing and dissecting them.
A federal spending database shows that the Department of Health and Human Services has given Charles River Laboratories $13.5 million out of a potential award amount of $27.5 million since 2018 to breed and maintain the monkeys.
NIAID paid $8.9 million of that $13.5 million. . . .
The island crossed WCWP’s radar when the group was investigating “fear experiments” on monkeys taking place inside of NIH’s lab in Bethesda, Maryland.
A deeper dive into those separate experiments at NIH led WCWP to discover the source of the monkeys at Morgan Island. . . .
In 2020, there were 3,521 monkeys on the island, with 750 born annually.
Between 500 and 600 of the monkeys are shipped to NIH and NIAID laboratories.
‘The Buck Stops With Him’
“It’s very unlikely that Fauci didn’t know about this given the amount of money involved and the fact that these experiments are happening in his own laboratories,” Goodman said. “These aren’t being contracted somewhere else. They are happening in his own house. If he’s going to get credit for any good he does, he needs to get blamed for any bad that’s happening on his watch as well. The buck stops with him, and he’s certainly responsible.” . . .
According to PubMed.gov, the monkeys reestablished their former social groups from the Caribbean research center after being transported to the island.
Vaccine research is the reason given for some of the experimentation; however, despite their biological similarities to humans, the NIH said that nine out of 10 drugs that pass tests on animals fail in humans because they don’t work or they are dangerous, Goodman said. . . .
WCWP has exposed six different beagle experiments that Fauci has funded.
In one of the procedures highlighted, NIAID staff performed a “cordectomy,” which involves cutting a dog’s vocal cords so that it can’t bark, howl, or cry during an experiment. . . .
Dr. Stacy Lopresti-Goodman, a primate expert, psychology professor, and WCWP adviser, said, “Primate experimentation is a cruel and notoriously unreliable way to develop drugs and treatments for humans, and it doesn’t deserve taxpayers’ support.”
Dr. Tiffani Milless, a pathologist and medical adviser to WCWP, said that “infecting nonhuman primates with painful and debilitating illnesses with the goal of curing humans is not just cruel, but it’s incredibly wasteful.” . . .
When reached for comment on the experiments, the NIAID said the monkeys are used by NIAID “for research that helps develop life-saving preventions and treatments for diseases affecting public health.” . . .
