Stop the Mayo Clinic from creating genetically engineered kittens for FIV testing.

Please click on and sign: Stop the Mayo Clinic from creating genetically engineered kittens for FIV testing.

The Mayo Clinic’s Eric Poeschia is inserting a rhesus macque gene – producer of an anitviral protein into unfertilized feline eges and adding luminescent protein from a jellyfish so they can monitor the genes under lights and microscopes because the cat will glow in the dark. These animals and small kittens will be laboratory animals whose lives will be living under a microscope and being injected with FIV disease to see if this helps with the false hope that this will help find a cure for AIDS.

Humans are not kittens nor do we have any of the genes that would make this research applicable to humans. Laboratory animals have a bleak existence and only have pain and discomfort to look forward to after which they will be killed.

There is a control group of kittens, too. This control group will be normal kittens infected with FIV in the lab. After being purposely infected these kittens will suffer from the illness without treatment to see how they differ from the kittens made immune genetically.

Lab animals are killed after experimentation is finished. No one is allowed to adopt them or bring them home. Articles about this specific research said the animals are well-cared for because they are well-nourished and better off than homeless animals. They do not say that their lives will be shortened to the time length of the experiment or discuss the daily routines of being poked with needles, having blood taken, or given drugs, and that their entire lives are spent in small cages where they cannot run or play or be given love. The kittens also have no voice in the matter. Those of you who have been in hospital know how uncomfortable it is when they come to take blood several times daily and give you drugs intravenously. Thank you for taking your time to read this.

You can also write the Mayo Clinic and tell them you are against their practice of creating animals genetically to use them to experiment on. Thank you for your time and caring.

    Science should not
    Be about
    “because I can”
    It is about compassion
    Towards animals
    And improving
    The lot of man

    ANY testing on animals is cruel, inhumane and barbaric. There should be no more laboratory animals, it is 2012, not 1912. There are other ways of testing things, innocent animals should not have to suffer.

        It really is criminal. Unfortunately, it’s not against the law, but laws don’t reflect what is evil, do they? This is nothing but a travesty!
