Dr. Fauci's Cruel Animal Experimentation Revealed: But Is There More?
The White Coat Waste project reported in an article published at Republican Daily.com dated October 25, 2021: Fauci is Screwed: Puppygate Footage Emerges of Dogs Tormented in Taxpayer-Funded Labs, Including ‘Inside One of Fauci’s Own Labs, that dogs got "no anesthesia" and "no pain relief when their heads were being eaten by hungry sand flies.
Further reported was that the taxpayer-funded study conducted at the laboratory for NIAID research cost Americans over $18 million. Listed also in the October 25, 2021 Republican Daily.com article was a summary of the kinds and numbers of animals used for research at the NIH Maryland campuses alone in 2019:
Number of dogs used in experiments: 415
Number of rabbits imprisoned or used in experiments: 487
Number of monkeys used in experiments: 3,272
Number of monkeys imprisoned but not used: 477
Number of monkeys who endured pain or distress without any painkillers: 383
Number of pigs used in experiments: 185
Number of hamsters used in experiments: 420
Number of guinea pigs used in experiments: 790
Number of bats used in experiments: 414
Examining Fauci's monkey research
According to an article in the Dailymail.com by Natasha Anderson published on October 25, 2021: NIH is now accused of spending $100m of taxpayer's money on torturing lab monkeys with ACID and snakes: DeSantis leads calls for Fauci to quit after he was revealed to have funded horrific testing on beagles
The article cites how the primates were tortured with rubber spiders and mechanical snakes - objects they instinctively fear - to observe their reactions. The NIH scientists then removed portions of their brains or destroyed them with acid to 'intentionally worsen the primates' fear'.
Testing AIDS Drugs On Foster Children
While the Fauci's animal research is gruesome and cruel, National File.com reports in an article by Tom Pappert dated October 27, 2021: Fauci’s NIH Once Tested AIDS Drugs On Foster Children, Including Infants. Children died while the studies were conducted, though researchers claim the deaths were unrelated to the powerful drugs
As Director of NIAID, Fauci oversees research to “prevent, diagnose, and treat infectious and immune-mediated diseases, including HIV/AIDS” according to the website. In 1988, Fauci became the first Director of the Office of AIDS research.
While Fauci was in these roles, it was revealed in 2005 that the NIH oversaw the enrollment of thousands of foster children with AIDS into controversial programs that allowed them to receive experimental drugs designed to combat the illness. Some of these children later died, and most were not given independent advocates that were promised.
According to John Soloman, then reporting for the Associated Press, the NIH “promised in writing to provide an independent advocate to safeguard the kids’ well-being as they tested potent AIDS drugs,” however, these advocates failed to materialize for almost every child involved. The subjects – foster children without stable home lives – ranged from infants to late teens.
Solomon wrote that, with a general lack of oversight, “Several studies that enlisted foster children reported that patients suffered side effects such as rashes, vomiting and sharp drops in infection-fighting blood cells, and one reported a ‘disturbing’ higher death rate among children who took higher doses of a drug, records show.”
“Some foster children also died during studies,” reported Solomon, after noting that the majority of children appear to not have received an advocate.
Further noted by Sullivan: “State or city agencies said they could find no records that any deaths were directly caused by the experimental treatments.”
A question to ponder
Will Dr. Fauci’s checkered past ever catch up with him, or will he remain always untouchable, as demonstrated many times over given this nation’s two-tiered justice system?
