Jane Velez-Mitchell takes a stand on the biggest topics of the day that people across the country are buzzing about.

Monkey experiment debate

The University of Wisconsin-Madison is facing criticism for controversial experiments involving Rhesus monkeys.  In these experiments, baby monkeys are separated from their mothers after birth and later subjected to tests to provoke fear and anxiety. The monkeys are then killed so that their brains can be dissected and studied.

Jane Velez-Mitchell moderated a first of its kind debate on these maternal deprivation experiments. Eric Sandgren, Director of the Research and Animal Resources Center at University of Wisconsin-Madison and Rick Bogle of Madison, Wisconsin’s Alliance for Animalswho organized a campaign to stop these experiments, debated both sides of the argument.  Those opposed to the experiments have started the site UWnotinourname.org.
