Every year, millions of animals are dissected in elementary, secondary, and college science classes. Each animal who is cut open and discarded represents not only a life lost but also a part of a trail of animal abuse and environmental havoc. Frogs are the most commonly dissected animals below the university level. Other species used include cats, mice, rats, worms, dogs, rabbits, fetal pigs, and fish. Some animals come from breeding facilities that cater to institutions and businesses that use animals in experiments, and other animals are caught in the wild.

Killing Compassion and Love for Science Classroom dissection desensitizes students to the sanctity of life. Research has shown that a significant number of students at every educational level are uncomfortable with the use of animals in dissection and experimentation. Studies also suggest that exposing young people to animal dissection as %u201Cscience%u201D can foster a callousness toward animals and nature and even dissuade some from pursuing careers in science. We The Undersigned Urge You To Ban This Lesson In ALL Schools Thank you for your co-operation.
Keep up the great work. Look what you've accomplished!
