Say no to dissection

My dog says with the new school year in full swing, he's sure many students will soon be asked to dissect animals in their science classes. Whether you're asked to cut up a frog, pig, cat, or other animal, many states have policies in place that require schools to provide alternatives for students who don't want to slice up animals (there's a plethora of wonderful software programs out there now!).

As a student, it may be hard to find your voice and stand up for what you believe in, but find the courage to do it. To learn more about dissection alternatives and what you can do to opt out of dissection days, click HERE.

    Thanks for the heads up on the link, Kelvin! Can't imagine why the ASPCA took down the info. I've replaced the link with a great resource from the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine. :-)

  5. Maybe while they did some backup of the site data, or some re-modification to the site, the link got changed or removed! It does happen!

  6. I don't mind doing dissection as long as the animal has died of natural causes and has not been killed specifically for the dissection .Do respect both sides opinion but you have to think without dissection how would doctors know  about latest medicines and technologies which can be used an how animals and humans evolve over time .It also helps those planning on being vet surgeons , surgeons, doctors , people whom want to work in post Morton  (i personally am studying for a level 2 in animal care) and feel that dissection is an important part of learning about the animals body and about the way the bosy works

    Unfortunately, there aren't tons of frogs and pigs dropping dead from natural causes. The animals used for dissection are killed for use in classrooms; they don't die of old age or disease. There are, however, wonderful new tech-based models that can provide all the benefit of dissection without the unnecessary death,
