PETA’s Custom Toilet Paper Says Experiments on Animals Are a Load of Crap

Published by PETA.

Today, PETA sent all members of Congress a complimentary, custom roll of toilet paper bearing a special message addressing cruel experiments on monkeys in a government laboratory funded with tax dollars. Our toilet paper came wrapped with an urgent call to action for our leaders: “$36 million down the toilet for NIH monkey fright experiments. Wipe it out!”

The message on our special rolls refers to “psychology” experiments conducted by National Institutes of Health (NIH) experimenter Elisabeth Murray, in which brain-damaged monkeys are frightened with rubber snakes and spiders, allegedly to study mental illness in humans.

If the monkeys used in these nightmarish experiments were given a chance to speak out about the stress that they’ve endured, they’d call all tests on animals what they are: a load of sh*t.

Murphy’s heartbreaking story is reason enough to wipe the funding from this torture lab:
