Primates, including humans, are arguably the most intelligent animals on the planet. Unfortunately, some primates are being tested in labs. The justification for this is that they are similar to humans. But the truth is, they ARE similar to humans! They feel the same things we do. They are able to reason. Is there any difference, then, from testing humans in labs under the same conditions?
Testing on non-human primates is illegal in the EU. It is not illegal in America. Over 55,000 non human primates, including chimpanzees, are being used for testing in America today.
Something must be done.
