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).
“In many of these experiments, Fauci and staff intentionally withhold pain relief, even though these are some of the most excruciating experiments in the federal government,” Goodman said.
