Piglets Tortured in Name of Science (and Big Bucks) at Ivy League University

Dog Talk (And Kitties Too!) (09-19-2022) #797C: Justin Goodman, Director of the White Coat Waste Project (which investigates the travesty of tax-payer dollars being thrown away on often pointless experiments, and studies which require animal cruelty) talks with Tracie about how massive millions of dollars are funneled from government funding to universities for research, lining the coffers of the universities, often via pointless and cruel experimentation on animals. The federal Office of Research Integrity (ORI) is now investigating falsification of results from experimental brain trauma inflicted on newborn piglets at the University of Pennsylvania (which happens to be Tracie’s alma mater). Tracie and Justin suggest that alumni and students at any university question the administration whether “indefensible science” is being conducted that harms animals for profit.
