Elizabeth Kucinich and the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine

Cool! She's the new Director of Public Affairs and she's already started lobbying for the Great Ape Protection Act, which would phase out invasive medical research on chimpanzees. (For you international readers, she's Dennis Kucinich's wife. He's a US Congressman who has run for President twice.)

Yeah! You might want to mention the timely ethical debate occurring in Madison, Wisconsin, lead by www.MadisonMonkeys.com. This group is working very hard to raise awareness and stop primate testing (which includes approximately 10,000 per year at UW-Madison and other research facilities in the area). PCRM is another helpful link.
