The National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases paid researchers over $200,000 in order to examine HIV rates in transgender women by injecting monkeys with hormones.
Supervised by Dr. Anthony Fauci since 1984, the NIAID provided the Scripps Research Institute with $205,562 in funding to study why transgender women have high rates of HIV, the Washington Free Beacon reported. In order to do this, monkeys were injected with female hormones.

Another #DrFauci experiment exposed…will the #Communist #Democrats do something about it??? @peta how are you allowing the #NIH make #TransMonkeys???@JoeBiden failures #AnimalCruelty https://t.co/xFH5GvoaMz— Anthony Asaro 🍊🍊🍊🍊🍊 (@DEATHBALL13) January 12, 2022
“This study is a complete waste of time and precious research funds,” Katherine Roe, a neuroscientist with PETA, announced in a statement provided to the Washington Examiner.
“HIV/AIDS thrives in the margins of society, where low education, unstable housing, and poverty heighten people’s vulnerability to HIV,” the description for the study states. “No population is more affected by these social injustices than transgender persons.”
Roe stated that by injecting the monkeys
with “hormones to somehow create transgender monkeys” in an effort to “see how that affects the transmission of HIV,” the research will “yield nothing useful for humans, and there is no value to this study.”
“Humans are the only primates who contract HIV and develop AIDS,” Roe announced. “Monkey’s don’t.”
A spokeswoman for Scripps explained to the Washington Free Beacon that the research study concerned “a sub-population of people at greater risk of HIV-infection, and factors that may or may not affect their response to a treatment/preventative approach in development.”
The study cites transgender women (TGW), “individuals who were assigned a male sex at birth but express their gender along a feminine spectrum,” as having an increased risk of contracting HIV/AIDS.
“A key part of gender affirmation in TGW is feminizing hormone therapy (FHT), of which the main drug is the hormone estradiol,” the study notes. “Although the physical female traits triggered by FHT are well established, less is known about the immunological effects of FHT in TGW.”
“It is through these types of targeted studies that substantive progress against HIV, cancer, ALS, dementia — indeed most diseases and conditions — will be made,” Scripps told the outlet.
Since managing the operations of the NIAID, Fauci has come under fire for previous studies involving animals. In October, Democratic and Republican lawmakers addressed a letter to Fauci and President Joe Biden requesting answers about the alleged testing of an experimental drug on 44 beagle puppies.
Fauci’s institute is back with another wasteful monkey torture experiment. It’s trying to feminize male monkeys to study HIV transmission. But human-relevant data could be collected from humans!— PETA (@peta) January 11, 2022
@NIH must stop tormenting animals & fund modern research. https://t.co/ZEJowUF3aC
Many say that this is yet another pointless, wasteful monkey torture experiment, and it’s simply as stupid as those done by NIH experimenter Elisabeth Murray, who brain-damages monkeys and then scares them with plastic snakes and spiders. NIH and its institutes have to fund modern, animal-free research—like organs-on-chips and artificial intelligence—and cease tormenting animals.
