What she discovered was nothing wanting “barbaric and gruesome scientific experiments,” she mentioned.

I learned a few weeks ago that a grant worth about $1.68 million was spent to take 44 beagle puppies, to take their vocal cords out so the scientists couldn’t hear their cries or their barks. They were then drugged, killed and dissected. Almost $2 million to kill 44 beagle puppies,” she informed visitor host Brian Kilmeade.

A report from the White Coat Waste Project that was based mostly off a Freedom of Information Act request with the National Institutes of Allergy & Infectious Disease discovered that greater than $400,000 in taxpayer cash was spent on canine experiments throughout which beagles have been infected with parasites via biting flies. Mace mentioned the bugs “are literally eating beagles alive from the neck up.”

 “Why are we wasting this kind of money on these kinds of barbaric and gruesome scientific experiments on these sweet and innocent animals?” she requested. “These poor dogs killing them with our money. Terrible. We would never do this here in the U.S.”

The Project reported that Dr. Anthony Fauci’s forms’s price range in 2021 is an estimated $6 billion and that paperwork obtained by means of FOIA present proof of a examine through which in any other case wholesome beagles have been handled with an experimental treatment earlier than being launched to biting flies that have been carrying a parasite recognized to be contagious to people.

“It’s disgusting,” Mace mentioned. “And it’s as if those lies about Covid-19 were not bad enough, now, they there is this. The more I learn about what is going on with taxpayer dollars and these grants that we’re sending to other countries overseas, literally the worse it gets,” she continued. “I have been an animal rights activist for a long time. I promised to work across the aisle with Democrats and Republicans when we agreed on an issue. This is one where millions of Americans agree. This should stop and should stop immediately.”

Mace was joined by 23 Democrat and Republican colleagues who signed on to her letter demanding solutions from the NIH. 

The congresswoman mentioned that if Fauci doesn’t reply inside various days, she “will have to ratchet it up.” As for future experiments, Mace mentioned she hopes the nation will come collectively in a bipartisan trend to forestall such therapy of animals shifting ahead.

“I expect a response from the NIH or grants funded under that program,” she mentioned. “It’s devastating. If this is will bring our country together to…do the right thing to save these animals from slaughter in the future I am for it,” she mentioned, earlier than including, “Dr. Fauci has got to be held accountable for everything he has done to this country in the last years. It’s devastating.”
