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.

  1. These horrible experiments were invented not in the 70s, but certainly by the mid-fifties when I was studying at the London School of Economics and saw these disgusting pictures of very distressed baby monkeys being given various pseudo-mothers. Surprise, surprise, they preferred the furry stuffed ones to the bare metal frames. were not the scientists clever to have discovered that – and what right have they to repeat the experiment with the mothers when they know perfectly well what the effects will be. How barbaric is the pseudo-thirst for pseudo-knowledge to be allowed to develop>?

  2. I saw these disgusting experiments on film when studying at the London School of Economics in the mid-fifties. They are barbaric and unnecessary – you know the answers already, so you are not being clever.Please stop wasting time, money and the lives of animals who cannot defend themselves.
