Seriously, can 1 person on this board give me 1 logical reason why it is anyone of our busines if they are his or not biologically??? I have a answer. No one can because their is not a logical answer. Because its not our business. These kids need to be left alone. I guess TMZ AND OTHER MEDIA SOURCES will not be happy until they have stalked and run his kids into the ground also.

@ Kim: It's not about running anyone into the ground. It's about our first amendment right. It's also about a person having the right to know who they are!! Put yourself in their situation. Would you appreciate being lied to about your heritage because your adoptive father is a self-hating Black man???

PETA Calls For Federal Investigation Into Conrad Murray Propofol Study On Beagle DogsPETA Calls For Federal Investigation Into Conrad Murray Propofol Study On Beagle Dogs

The shocking news that Dr. Conrad Murray's defense team tested the drug Propofol on Beagle dogs to help with his case in the Michael Jackson death trial has outraged PETA so much that they're calling for a federal investigation, saying it would have caused "enormous suffering in the animals."

As RadarOnline.com exclusively reported, Dr. Murray's defense team commissioned a study testing the affects of the powerful anesthetic on Beagle dogs, to bolster their claim that Michael Jackson orally overdosed on the drug.

"I cannot imagine any use for this information at all," PETA's Vice President of Laboratory Kathy Guillermo exclusively told RadarOnline.com. "These tests cause enormous suffering in animals."

PETA (the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals organization), filed a complaint with the U.S. Department o****riculture (USDA) on Monday alleging "cruel drug toxicity tests on beagles commissioned by the defense team of Dr. Conrad Murray, the physician now on trial for his alleged role in Michael Jackson's death.

“PETA asserts that if attorneys from Flanagan, Unger, Grover & McCool did commission the tests for the drug propofol - the toxic effects of which have been extensively studied in dogs and humans - those tests were likely conducted in violation of the federal Animal Welfare Act's prohibition against tests on animals that duplicate previous experiments. PETA has filed a complaint with the State Bar of California as well."

The animal rights organization is also requesting that the California State Bar investigate "how and why these cruel and archaic tests on beagles were allowed and, should violations of the law be found, to punish those responsible."

Whether or not the dogs died during the tests that Dr. Murray's team conducted is unclear, but PETA says the tests torture the innocent animals.

Read PETA's Complaint To The California Bar

"In toxicology tests, large doses of chemicals are pumped into dogs' bodies, slowly poisoning them. Substantial data are publicly available about the oral toxicity of propofol in dogs and other animals, and propofol toxicity and propofol infusion syndrome have been extensively studied in humans. PETA is calling on the USDA to also investigate whether the tests reportedly commissioned by Dr. Murray's defense team were conducted at a registered facility and whether they were properly reviewed and approved by an Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee."

As PETA previously told RadarOnline.com, "This would have greatly upset Michael, who was known to be a huge animal lover. This was obviously a cruel attempt to drag out this trial and confuse the jurors, adding more victims to the death toll in this sad case."

Guillermo added: "If we find evidence that the testing occurred the USDA will cite the lab, but nothing is going to bring the dogs back."

Dr. Conard Murry's trial will continue on Wednesday and you can watch it live, right here, on RadarOnline.com.

The First Amendment (Amendment I) to the United States Constitution is part of the Bill of Rights. The amendment prohibits the making of any law respecting an establishment of religion, impeding the free exercise of religion, abridging the freedom of speech, infringing on the freedom of the press, interfering with the right to peaceably assemble or prohibiting the petitioning for a governmental redress of grievances.

UMMM excuuuuuuuse me, but where exactly does it say in the First Ammendment that it is anyones business what someones parentage is???????

Please refer to my avatar, Thank You.

@ Mimi:

Wow, you must know a lot about law. You just Wikipedia'd the Bill of Rights. Darn, I wish I had those mad skillz.

You're right, the authors of the Bill of Rights should have added: "...unless it's none of your business what people's parentage is."

So glad you joined us tonight and cleared everything up.

@ Mimi:

There you go again. Such a genius. I suppose you are also an authority on conjugating words that are slang and thus, don't have punctuation rules assigned to them.

What would we do without you??

Blue eyeshadow Mimi needs to run for everything. She'd win. But don't make the other Mimi too jealous. She's busy educating the world in order to care for her appearance and might get jealous. Let her cackle and feel good about being an Ebonics talking, ignorant dip**** who retorts valid arguments with "Excuse me???? OMG, ROFL"

The three children look less and less like biological siblings as they grow up, even the two we know had the same mother.
