Washington – Please see the following statement from PETA Senior Vice President Kathy Guillermo regarding the announcement that Dr. Anthony Fauci will retire by the end of President Joe Biden’s term:
PETA welcomes Anthony Fauci’s retirement announcement, but we have a suggestion: Leave now. Under his direction, the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases has harmed millions of animals, including tens of thousands of monkeys in failed AIDS experiments that have not produced a marketable vaccine to prevent HIV and dogs who have been subjected to hideous experiments. Fauci needs to make way immediately for a forward-thinking leader who will admit that experiments on animals have been an utter failure and implement modern, human-relevant research methods, such as those described in PETA scientists’ Research Modernization Deal.
