"Under the guidance of her vivisector instructors, she admitted that she had begun experimenting on animals in labs and, up until less than 24 hours ago, she defended this money-based pseudo-scientific discipline as a matter of course. Having received some intense education from the networks of Florida activists overnight, however, Alena now understands that, just like every other student being indoctrinated into the horrific world of institutionalized animal abuse,“I was naive…I really just did not know about all this stuff.”

Hummm... Sounds to me like she may have been intimidated by these so called "Florida Activists". I wouldn't be surprised if in several months when the heat is off her her views change. It's undeniable that we as the human race have benefited from animal testing.

She is probably a very smart young lady and will see the truth -- Which is that no matter your love for animals, animal testing helps scientific progress.

Very interesting the language she uses... "up until 24 hours ago." It does very much sound like threats or intimidation were used.

These ARA websites are quite good a publishing slanted information that leaves out quite a bit of background information... It is quite scary that these ARAs are going to "be following her career". It sounds quite obssessive and controlling, giving the fact that there are how many university students pursuing careers in science, medicine, and research annually?

You folks are demented. I hope this gal get out from under you and your tactics... this world needs as many well-trained scientists and doctors as it can get without your brainwashing.

She was threatened from at least 100 psychos and received many death threats. People told her they wanted to beat the s*** out of her and kill her. She saidnumerous times that she performed test on fruit flies...these are the so called animals they are referring to. No matter what we said or did they would not stop. The leader of the terrorists made a photoshopped picture of alena with blood all over her and two dead rabbits that had their insides ripped out. They out this picture all over the internet and facebook. No one would listen to reason or believe her that she only tested on fruit flies. They acted as terrorists giving her a list of demands. It was a sick horrible experience. These people are worse than the people they are fighting. I have no doubt that they would murder someone just for testing on fruit flies.

I am curious how you know this to be fact. Not that the ARA's wouldn't resort to this type of persuasion, but how do you know that these things happened to this young lady?
