Chimpanzees getting "freedom" from a life of experimentation. Experiments on apes have to stop. I can think of plenty of humans that could take their place like serial killers and war criminals. Anyway I am glad they finally got their freedom from that nightmare.

We should move to end all animal abuse in the form of animal experiments. IF experiments MUST be made in order to benefit mankind . We should use condemned criminals. They at least should be made to benefit mankind somehow. But even so they should not be mistreated unduly.
Actually ways must be found where experiments need not be done where-ever possible. And if so then on much lesser forms of life (snail perhaps? Fish?)
Maybe only nonpainful experiments on criminals who have been extremely cruel only.
But even so, thats not all that right.

No not at all making fun of it; I thought of that immediately too and it made it even more moving. It was a great movie and I saw it on the big screen. I am quite a fan of the whole series even the first ones with Charlton Heston.

The chimps were probably more like "Wow! This different! Oh hey, friend, I'ma hug you cause you're standing right behing me" and most certainly not "FREE!! I'm FREE!! BABY WE'VE MADE IT!"
