Vegan Rage: Charities that test on animals (tw: animal abuse)
"March of Dimes
The March of Dimes funded a study in which the eyes of kittens were sewn shut for one year, to prove that loss of normal vision alters the brain development of cats. Science long ago established that loss of vision alters brain development of humans, but now we know it does the same thing in cats. The kittens were killed after one year. The March of Dimes also funds studies in which drugs and alcohol are given to pregnant animals to prove that these substances harm developing babies, something we all know harms humans.
Many people are surprised to learn that the Red Cross funds experiments on animals, but they do. In one experiment, researchers drained 30 percent of the blood volume of rabbits every two weeks to see how it affected them. Other experiments funded by the Red Cross involved mice, rats and toads.
Shriners Burns Institutes
Shriners Burns Institutes have studied the effects of burns on rats, guinea pigs, dogs and sheep for years. In one study, rats were burned so that the effects of a particular drug on wound healing could be studied. Since the drug was already being used on humans, one is left to wonder why the researchers didn’t just study the effects of the drug on them.”

The next time someone asks you to like, donate a dollar for cancer or diabetes research, keep in mind that lots of popular organizations and charities are not actually in it for the “greater good.” Please be aware of where your money goes.
