PETA Urges End Of Harvard Monkey Studies, Sewing Eyes Closed

  • PETA is pressing Harvard Medical School officials to end monkey experiments that involve taking baby macaques from their mothers sewing their eyes closed.
  • “I’m deeply concerned that the harm caused to the animals far outweighs any potential benefits to human or animal health — and I ask that approval to carry out these experiments be revoked,” wrote PETA neuroscientist Dr. Katherine Roe.
  • PETA also raised questions about the impact of the research, claiming it had not produced any human benefit.
