Washoe and Loulis
After reading this I doubt that you will ever look at an animal the same way again. Just because they cannot speak, does not mean they do not think and feel much the same way we do. (Keep in mind that animals have long been given antidepressants and are used in testing for prescription drugs and makeup, etc.) People tend to distance themselves from animals in many ways in order to excuse what we as a society do to them. In doing so I believe we are prevented from seeing how deeply animals feel compassion and the same feelings we have for our loved ones which they clearly experience right along with us along with their ability to have deep conscious thought processes.
This is the story of Washoe and her adopted son, Loulis who learned sign language and could, therefore, communicate all of these thoughts and feelings. The insight this will give is astounding as she shows such compassion for her trainer who has lost a child! And then her adoption of a baby monkey and her teaching him to sign on her own! It will touch your heart and open your mind!
Please read her story and see more pictures here: http://www.tickld.com/x/this-is-washoe-and-shes-about-to-change-the-way-you-see-animals-seriously

Was prescribed Luvox to treat my OCD prior to during and after birth of my 2nd child Having OCD i I was obsessed that this drug may harm the baby. I was reassured that it is a safe drug Our son was born with double outlet right ventricle, craniosynostosis and otosclerosis. Genetic testing was performed,but came back with no missing chromosomes or abnormalities,FISH etc we found out recently that this class C drug may have caused these defects in our child. A class C drug is a drug that no testing was performed on a pregnant woman but has been known to cause defects and morbidity in animals Why would a doctor prescribe a drug to a pregnant woman why would the FDA approve such a drug why would a company Solvay pharm make such a harmful product.. Our son has had 4 open heart surgeries, he’s deaf in 1 ear and he has a mis shaped skull and ear. My OCD was not severe enough to out weigh these possible defects. Any pregnant women DO NOT TAKE ANY SSRI good luck finding an attorney to rep you it’s been 3 years and no one will takr this case to court!!!!!!
