I am not able to condone this at all. What ever the reason may be for doing it. These pigs are sentient and should be given a humane death . The surgery could be performed after death and there are numerous Hitech machines and simulators that can map out things like bionics etc to assist with recovery post trauma. The fact it is being done in Germany suggests the MOD know only too well, that the UK would not permit it here. So is this a case of double standards?

I just can't even read the article. It makes me feel ill that we are allowing this. It may be to help and assist with repairing troops/people blown up but a humanely killed pig would provide the same guinea-pig.

Some historians have suggested that the actual dropping of the Hiroshima bomb was some of ghastly experiment on people to see whether it worked!
The insanity of man knows no bounds.

I really can't bring myself to read it. Its sadism in the name of science; permitted blatant cruelty. How can it be condoned at all?
