Mothers Day Canceled: UW Scientists Revive Harry Harlow’s Cruel Maternal Deprivation
MOTHERS DAY CANCELED: UW SCIENTISTS REVIVE HARRY HARLOW’S CRUEL MATERNAL DEPRIVATION
Maternal deprivation — crushing a monkey’s spirit by raising him or her without a nurturing caregiver — was invented and promoted by UW-Madison’s Harry Harlow and his students in the 1970s and 80s. Harlow’s experiments with maternal deprivation are widely acknowledged as being profoundly cruel.
Compassionate people everywhere are urged to speak out against this revival of Harry Harlow’s cruel methods by calling and writing Dr. Robert Streiffer, Chair of the university oversight committee responsible for approving these experiments, and urging him to do everything he can to bring this outrageous ethical backsliding return to cruelty to the attention of the entire campus and to do everything he can to stop them.
