Ban the monkey virus!

Scientists have now found a way to infect monkeys with HIV so that they can test anti-HIV vaccines on them. Reminds me of this movie where monkeys are taught to operate flight simulators while they are exposed to extreme radiation. Reality can be worse than life. Killing animals is one thing, but is human life so valuable that other life forms have to be tortured so that we can have a better place to live in?

To die off as one is expected to is much better than living on and on and on with needles and chemicals. Of course, if one is young maybe extended life is good. Why cant research be simulated on some virtual conditions? I wouldnt want a monkey suffer on my account.
