Lea Michele's Fights For Chimp Rights

So Inspiring!

Lea Michele is begging the US government to help Cammy, a chimpanzee being used in invasive experiments in a San Antonio laboratory.

Michele wrote a letter to the director to the National Institutes of Health saying:

“Cammy, one of the 14 chimpanzees moved to this Texas lab, was taken from her mom the day she was born. She was first traumatically sedated with powerful chemicals when she was only 6 months old. Chimpanzee experimentation raises some obvious ethical issues, and there are also clear scientific problems. That’s why most countries around the world no longer permit harmful research on chimpanzees.”

The Glee star wants all of these chimpanzees—who have been labeled the San Antonio 14—to be spared experimentation and sent to a sanctuary.
