Coronavirus vaccine: For once, the NIH isn’t waiting for cruel and pointless animal tests

The NIH itself reports that 95 out of every 100 drugs that pass animal tests FAIL in humans. Cruel and unnecessary experiments on animals divert time and funding from better, non-animal methods.

KATHERINE SULLIVAN: ‘Many scientists and experts agree, experiments on animals are pointless — they slow down the search for treatments and cures for human disease. Moreover, all the poisoning, shocking, burning, and killing is unethical and cruel… But when it comes to a new Coronavirus vaccine, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) is finally heeding the call — according to BBC News, the agency isn’t waiting for the typical, lengthy animal-testing phase and is instead heading straight for human trials. While this won’t stop all tests on animals for the vaccine, it should pave the way for safe straight-to-human vaccine trials from now on… NIH itself reports that 95 out of every 100 drugs that pass animal tests fail in humans. Experiments on animals divert time and funding from better, non-animal methods. And experts know it…

In Seattle, 45 healthy, willing volunteers have reportedly agreed to partake in the first human trial of a vaccine, funded by NIH, that could protect against COVID-19, the novel, SARS-like coronavirus (which has apparently been traced back to live animals who were closely confined, shipped, killed, and eaten) that has much of the world in a fearful frenzy… Regardless of the lack of tests on animals, Moderna Therapeutics — the company behind the new coronavirus vaccine — reportedly says that “the vaccine has been made using a tried and tested process”. All vaccines, drugs, treatments, and products should be “made using a tried and tested process” that doesn’t include non-consenting animals.

Unlike humans, animals can’t agree to being experimented on. And if they could, they likely wouldn’t consent to being mutilated, poisoned, infected with painful and deadly diseases, burned, electrocuted, shot, addicted to drugs, or psychologically tortured and eventually killed… PETA works globally to expose and end the use of animals in experiments. This includes working to phase out animal tests at the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, collaborating with members of Congress to stop cruel studies, and persuading major corporations, other government agencies, and universities to abandon animal tests in favor of modern, non-animal methods’.
