Stop Using Pigs at University of Mississippi

  • by: Animal Advocates
  • target: James E. Keeton, M.D., Dean of University of Mississippi Medical Center School of Medicine
End the use of live pigs in the University of Mississippi Medical Center (UMMC) School of Medicine's physiology lab. The use of live animals in medical school curricula is cruel and outdated. UMMC is one of only seven medical schools in the U.S. and Canada that continue to use live animals for training.

UMMC already has a state-of-the-art simulation center that can easily replace the use of pigs, so there is no justification for the continued use of live animals. Please end this cruel and unnecessary practice immediately.
