Medical Experiments

Tell Elon Musk and Neuralink to Stop Harming Animals!
In August 2020, entrepreneur Elon Musk revealed that his Neuralink employees have implanted computer chips in pigs' brains. This San Francisco-based company has a long history of using animals—including monkeys, mice, and sheep—to conduct experiments that are supposedly aimed at allowing the brain to communicate directly with computers and machines. Please send an email to Musk and the other leaders of Neuralink and urge them to stop using animals and instead focus on human-relevant research methods!
