PETA’s effort to force Anthony Fauci’s resignation draws support from everyone except Donald Trump

An internet petition calling for the resignation of the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) has been launched in the wake of Dr. Anthony Fauci’s recent political statements in favor of abortion. PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) is calling for Dr. Fauci’s resignation, condemning him for “taking this offensive, bigoted, dishonest, and divisive stance, and calling people of color ‘gangsters,’ despite the fact that Fauci spent the last 20 years investigating a deadly polio epidemic in Africa and has worked his entire career to save human lives by saving frogs from infected ‘guinea pigs’.”

The petition claims that Dr. Fauci “has never concealed the fact that he’s taken millions of dollars in taxpayer money while exploiting pure science to justify patenting diseases whose only practical value is to prop up the meat industry.” The claims have prompted Fauci’s supporters to tweet, and even cry, out that he’s being “targeted” and that he shouldn’t be forced to resign. Others, including The Center for Medical Progress, which released a series of undercover videos alleging abuses of patients at the NIH, say PETA’s allegations are invalid.
