The Guardian Features Editorial Supporting Primate Research
On Monday, May 25, The Guardian featured an editorial lauding the importance of animals, specifically the use of primate models, in medical research. The piece, titled, The Guardian view on vital medical research on primates: don’t give in to the animal rights advocates, even states that abandoning primate research would be “craven and foolish.”
The Guardian describes the animal rights extremist agenda against prominent European researcher Nikos Logothetis and his important work. The piece also highlights extraordinary work by neuroscientists in California that have enabled a paralyzed patient to control a robotic arm through his brain’s impulses, a development achieved through research with monkeys.
