Target: Johns Hopkins University President Ronald J. Daniels
Goal: Stop university from performing cruel and painful sexual experiments on mice and rats
An investigation by People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) found that mice and rats are being tortured and killed in sexual experiments at Johns Hopkins University. These unfortunate rodents have their sex organs mutilated and electronically stimulated before they are killed. We must ask Johns Hopkins University President Ronald J. Daniels to stop performing these cruel experiments at his university immediately.
The details of the Johns Hopkins experiments show the horrible treatment that the mice and rats endure. The skin is cut off their penises, which are then subjected to electrical stimulation with electrodes for up to five minutes. These animals then have their penises injected with various chemicals to determine if they can maintain an erection. With the experiments complete, the animals are killed and discarded.
To make matters worse, these horrific experiments are funded by the United States government. PETA estimates that the National Institute of Health provides Johns Hopkins University with $2,792,144 in tax payer funding.
By signing this petition below, you will urge Johns Hopkins University President Ronald J. Daniels to stop allowing cruel and twisted sexual experiments to be performed on rodents at his university.
Dear Johns Hopkins President Ronald J. Daniels,
PETA has revealed that brutal sexual experiments are being performed on mice and rats at Johns Hopkins University. These helpless animals have the skin removed from their sexual organs, electrodes applied to the wound and chemicals injected into their bodies. When the torture is complete, they are killed and discarded.
To make matters worse, these horrific experiments are funded by the United States government. I imagine that you could find a better way to spend over two million dollars of tax payer money at your prestigious university.
I urge you to ban Johns Hopkins University from performing sexual experiments on mice and rats immediately.
