Marcia Nielsen's Ethical Enslavement and Torture

Hello Marcia,

You've been corresponding with one of my associates, Ricky Setticase, as documented at  and below.

We are still awaiting the green light to come into the KUMC vivisection labs. Please let us know when we can come to observe and document the 'ethical research' that our tax money funds. We'd like to invite the media as well.

'Ethical' enslavement and torture of sentient, intelligent, and social beings'

TORTURED BY FRIENDS OF DARIO RINGACH/UCLA PRO-TORTURE (image furnished by animal mutilator ringach)

Posted by Jason Miller


Camille Marino's deconstruction of a UCLA vivisector's article describing 'responsible research with monkeys' (click on the link below) serves nicely to address The University of Kansas Medical Center's concerns that 'materials publicly distributed in the Kansas City area by protestors contained gross inaccuracies.' Meanwhile, we patiently await access to the laboratories at KU Med Center so that we can observe and video their 'ethical' enslavement and torture of sentient, intelligent, and social beings. (See Ricky Setticase's email exchange with KUMC below).


Dario Ringach posted an essay on Speaking of Research, A look at responsible research with monkeys, in which he states that the images of injured animals activists publicize are either decades old or from other countries. Yet, the 'humane' footage he provides is from a foreign country ' the UCLA dungeon is off-limits . He will not acknowledge that every single time an activist gains access to a lab, new horrors are continually exposed ' EVERY SINGLE TIME. But I now realize that Ringach is incapable of recognizing sadism. He truly is a sociopath and he, as well as the rest of his murderous community, will never stop their sadistic reign of their own accord.

And here is the email exchange between activist, Ricky Setticase, and KUMC Vice Chancellor for Public Affairs, Marcia J. Nielsen, PhD:

Good day KU Medical.

Bite Club of KC protested Paul Cheney of KU Medical during National Primate Liberation Week October 17-24 2009 for his enslavement and torture of monkeys in a brain mapping study. The information promoted by Bite Club was provided by Michael Budkie and his group Stop Animal Exploitation Now (  )

KU Medical spokes person stated that Bite Club's information was full of 'gross inconsistencies.' So I am asking you, Marcia, what are those inconsistencies?

I am also asking that you 'open the doors' to Paul Cheney's 'research' and allow the public to witness the vivisection. Would KU Medical be willing to co-produce a video with Bite Club showing the 'research' of Paul Cheney highlighting the enslavement of sentient monkeys while Paul has his way the restrained animal?

I believe my tax dollars are funding Paul Cheney's 'torture porn' research. I should therefore be allowed to see how my money is being spent!

I look forward to hearing back from you or one of your staff. At the least I hope you will outline those 'gross inconsistencies' you provided in such general terms.

Dear Mr. Setticase:
Thank you for contacting us.

Materials publicly distributed in the Kansas City area by protestors contained gross 'inaccuracies' ' the word I used and that media reported; not 'inconsistencies.' They promoted false, misleading and inflammatory statements. They impugned the integrity of our researchers, whom we know to be trained professionals committed to finding cures and discovering medical treatments that relieve suffering.

We provided corrections to media and others, including the following:
Animal research plays a vital role in medical advances for humans and animals. Practically every present-day prevention treatment, cure and control of disease, pain and suffering is based on knowledge attained through research with animals. This includes Insulin for diabetics, blood transfusions, vaccinations, chemotherapy, antibiotics, joint replacement and dialysis.

Primates do receive anesthesia during research procedures; they are treated and monitored by qualified veterinarians to prevent injury or disease.

The research is performed under strict protocols set by national regulatory bodies and is done for the purpose of developing cures and treatments for victims of stroke and other neurological afflictions.
Researchers at the KU Medical Center and around the world engage in this ethical research to learn more about motor function loss, long-term cognitive impairments, to repair brain injuries and to devise techniques to help stroke victims rehabilitate.

Results of the neurological procedures under attack by activists have provided invaluable insight into the treatment and management of neurological conditions such as Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease and traumatic brain injury, in addition to stroke.

We work hard to maintain a clean, comfortable and respectful environment for the animals in our research facilities. The facilities are overseen and reviewed by professional and federal animal care regulatory agencies.

Thanks for the reply, Marcia. Sorry for inaccurately quoting the news article and thank you for the correction.

So are me and my Bite Club colleagues invited to video tape this 'clean, comfortable and respectful environment for the animals?' Can Bite Club, on behalf of the animals, witness this 'valuable' research in action? Will KU Medical open its doors to dispell the so called myths promoted by animal activists?
I know research facilities are 'overseen and reviewed by professional and federal animal care regulatory agencies' but so are meat processing plants and we have all seen the video footage from animal activists showing regulatory agencies turning a blind eye and a deaf ear to animal abuse.
I hope you will extend an open hand to Bite Club and I look forward to your invitation.
Ricky Setticase.
