Elon: Stop the Cruel Implantation of Brain Chips Into Animals

Target: Elon Musk, American Inventor

Goal: Stop testing Neuralink brain chips on pigs.

Elon Musk has developed a brain chip that he has implanted into pigs. The coin-sized computer chip produced by his startup Neuralink is being developed with the goal of curing human diseases. However, while the product is being developed for human gain, it is being cruelly inserted into non-consenting animals.

Neuralink hopes to implant the devices into humans to help with known neurological conditions like Alzheimer’s, dementia, and spinal cord injuries. Ultimately, though, the company hopes to fuse humankind with artificial intelligence. Musk said that “an implantable device can actually fix these problems,” referring to memory loss, hearing loss, depression, and insomnia. Musk gave a demonstration that he referred to as the “three little pigs demo.” This included the showing of Gertrude, a pig with a Neuralink implant in the part of her brain that controls her snout. Each time Gertrude moved her snout, there was a graph that responded by showing spikes in neurological activity. Musk said that the company has three pigs with two implants each.

Musk revealed the Neuralink developments on a webcast where one commenter referred to the animals as “Cypork,” a mix between cyborg and pork. This type of testing and objectification should never be done to animals that cannot consent to it. Sign this petition to urge Neuralink to stop testing on animals.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Mr. Musk,

In your webcast revealing Neuralink developments you said, “I could have a Neuralink right now and you wouldn’t know. Maybe I do.” If you truly believe in your product, test it on yourself. It is unethical and cruel to implant artificial intelligence into non-consenting animals like Gertrude the pig. Just because humans have reached this level of technological development does not mean that we have the right to force it onto other species. I urge you to commit to a more moral testing procedure of Neuralink by ending the experimentation on animals.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    STOP testing them on pigs, or ANY OTHER ANIMAL!

    Try humans, Elon; they at least can give consent!!!

  2. YO MUSK, TEST OF YOURSELF. PUT BRAIN CHIPS IN YOUR BRAIN NOT ANIMALS

  3. MR, Elon Musk. When are humans going to be responsible for their actions against God’s other creatures. If what you are making is for humans, then test it on humans! There are a multitude of people out there that will do it for money. Imagine you are held captive and someone inserts a chip in your brain by force? I have so much respect for people like you that I would insert one on your brain and one in your ass, just in case. You know, animals and humans are different organisms and things don’t work the same in different systems.

  4. Spend your money on implanting into yourself and stop abusing animals to increase your wealth. You are certainly no divine creature so stop acting like you are God.

    Test it on your own children or yourself.
    You need a chip in your brain that would insert respect and compassion in your pathetic little ego.

  6. Death wish to this vile,mentally deranged scumbag.This vile POS has a disgraceful abusive reputation with animals and children.
