If you’ve been living under a rock for the past couple of weeks, you might not know that President Obama has been taking some pretty big steps to push a ban on the torture of human beings.
Every year, animals including cats, dogs, monkeys, pigs, goats, and even dolphins are used in military training experiments that can only be described as torture. From starving, shooting, burning, stabbing, dismembering or electrocuting—animals used in military testing suffer in the name of science and war in some of the most senseless “tests” I’ve ever heard of. Seriously—shooting pigs and burning monkeys with chemicals, is this really the most humane thing we can do in 2009? All of that only to be killed in the cold hands of an experimenter. These animals need your help!
