I like monkeys, so I feel sad about scientists genetically modifying them to give them autistic-like traits.
I understand that analysing these traits in monkeys could lead to treatments for serious conditions in humans, but I know I couldn't do that kind of research.
If this leads to treatments in the future it will definitely help many people, so I can't say it should be stopped. But I'm not sure where the line is drawn. I think monkeys have a right to a free and happy life just as much as humans.
