Help Improve U.S. Military Medicine: Stop Live Animal Trauma Training
Did you know that current U.S. military combat trauma training includes practicing medical procedures on live animals? These outdated training methods include amputating the legs of goats and slicing into pigs' throats to create larger air passages. These practices are not only cruel, but they are also poor training for treating human trauma.
Combat medical training is important for keeping soldiers alive, and, as a result, we support only the best for the men and women of the U.S. military. Fortunately, the best means revamping training methods to those that are more human-based. These practices are more effective and more humane towards animals.
Help support improved combat medicine, and fight animal cruelty, by supporting the update of training methods in the U.S. military.
I am writing today to urge you to support the passing of the Superior Training Practices Act.
The safety of U.S. troops on the battlefield is vital, but current U.S. military trauma training includes treatment of animals that is both inhumane and ineffective comparative to newer methods that are human-based.
Practicing medical procedures on live animals is not only cruel, but also does not allow for troops to adequately prepare for the administration of these procedures on actual human beings on the battlefield. The introduction of newer methods, including anatomically accurate cut suits, would allow troops to be both better prepared to operate on a human, and more skilled at doing so.
Please help ensure that our military personnel are in good hands, and stop live animal trauma training by supporting improvements in training that are less cruel and more effective.
