Dear followers : Yesterday, in my passionate plea to reject Trump, I misspoke on anti vivisection defined as” cruelty to animals during scientific investigation”. As a scientist , I’ ve killed many rats and mice and believe that’s just and appropriate prior to proceeding directly to human trials. I do believe in human trials, especially in rare diseases and life and death circumstances.
