LA Times Advertisement, Billboard Confirm UCLA Desperation
Animal Abusers Refuse to Debate Issues, Spend Big to Counter Exposure of
ANGELES: In an unprecedented display of desperation, UCLA vivisectors have
taken out a full-page paid advertisement in Sunday's Los Angeles Times to
decry not the suffering of the thousands of innocent animals they torture
and kill annually, but the lousy media attention they have received recently
as activists have exposed their misdeeds.
newspaper advertisement, apparently paid for by a medical industry schill
group, is full of the usual lies and justifications propping up the outmoded,
inefficient and cruel practice of killing animals to look for new ways to
treat human diseases. In reality, most useful research that improves human
health comes from modern techniques that no longer depend on gruesome and
bloody animal mutilation, but instead make use of modern computer technology,
epidemiologic studies, CT, MRI and PET scanning, microarrays and dozens
of other methodologies.
a further sign of desperation, vivisectionists have also erected billboards
claiming the Los Angeles populace is free of, get this, leprosy, because
of animal experimentation. There were 91 cases of leprosy, or Hansen's Disease,
in the entire United States in 2000; treatment has been effective since
at least the 1940's, with new drug regimens in place to counter resistance
to the causative bacterium since the 1980's. Implying that the continued
killing of animals in the 21st century is a "necessary evil" to
prevent leprosy is just another attempt to keep UCLA rolling in research
grant money, most of it taxpayer funds wasted on addicting non-human primates
to methamphetamines and other utterly ridiculous, useless and cruel experiments.
attempts by physicians to debate UCLA researchers have been rebuffed by
the university, knowing that their practices cannot stand exposure to the
public eye. CNN recently invited Drs. Jerry Vlasak and Ray Greek to debate
UCLA vivisectors, albeit not physicians, Dario Ringach and David Jentsch.
Vlasak and Greek jumped at the chance to dispute the medical efficaciousness
and morality of animal experimentation; Ringach and Jentsch refused to appear.
attempts at dialogue and peaceful attempts to make change and alleviate
suffering are frustrated, some activists are willing to use more forceful
means to help animals. North American Animal Liberation Press correspondent
Camille Marino makes an apt comparison: "LA citizen Richard Ramirez,
known as the “Nightstalker”, was a cold, sadistic and violent
serial murderer — his behavior was eerily similar to that of any vivisector.
While he was actively inciting an atmosphere of terror, the media relentlessly
covered the newsworthy developments. While vivisectors like J. David Jenstch
and Dario Ringach are active, the animal liberation networks are committed
to relentlessly cover their sociopathic reign of terror. When average citizens
finally apprehended Ramirez, they beat him mercilessly for his crimes. Jentsch
and Ringach have earned the right to fear retaliation for their crimes.
Ramirez or Jentsch or Ringach, all are equally guilty, and warrant a response...both
seem unable to control their bloodlust. They each make a potent case for
individuals who need to be stopped by any means necessary."
