In December of 2021, as the Biden administration, liberal lawmakers and Dr. Anthony Fauci were warning Americans that the coronavirus is coming back with a vengeance and we must cancel all holiday plans, the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) was wasting taxpayer dollars in the most outrageous of ways.
Dr. Fauci’s division of the National Institutes of Health “paid over $200,000 during the coronavirus pandemic for researchers to study why transgender women have high rates of HIV” reports the Washington Free Beacon.
Not only was that money flagrantly used during the world’s greatest pandemic in modern times, but the study was conducted “by injecting male monkeys with female hormones.” In December, Scripps Research received $205,562 for the study from the NIAID.
As Americans are struggling to find available Covid tests and are waiting in line for hours to get tested, male monkeys are being subjected “to feminizing hormone therapy to study how it impacts the monkey’s immune systems, according to the National Institutes of Health.”
Fauci has overseen rampant animal testing since he took over the NIAID in 1984. It was revealed in November that the NIAID funded a study that infected beagles with heartworm larvae and euthanized them after experimentations. As part of another study, researchers infected beagles with mutated bacteria from ticks.
The NIAID began running HIV vaccine tests on monkeys a year after Fauci took charge. Each year, the department acquires 400 to 600 rhesus monkeys from a South Carolina island leased by Charles River Laboratories, which has a $27.5 million contract with the NIAID.
Dr. Katherine Roe, a neuroscientist with PETA, says the study is “yet another pointless, wasteful monkey torture experiment.”
“It’s just bad science to suggest that dosing monkeys with feminizing medication makes them good stand-ins for humans,” Roe told the Washington Free Beacon. “This study will not help to prevent or treat HIV and will not help transgender women.”
