Charlotte Ross, who played a detective on “NYPD Blue” and has appeared on “Glee,” and “Law & Order,” is urging the National Institutes Of Health to halt what she considers a crime against chimpanzees.

As Ross writes in a letter dated Dec. 16 to NIH director Francis S. Collins, M.D., Ph.D., she is determined to block 200 chimpanzees from being turned over to a Texas research laboratory for invasive experiments.

“As a mother of a young son, I support modern medical research—not inhumane chimpanzee experiments that will not improve or protect human health,” writes Ross. “Dr. Collins, I urge you not to return the Alamogordo chimpanzees to laboratory cages. These amazing animals deserve to spend their remaining years in peaceful retirement.”

Other high-profile figures, including Gov. Bill Richardson, actress Kristin Bauer, and actor Gene Hackman, have also been protesting the NIH plan.
