“Students at Winston Churchill High School recorded videos as their classmates used a cat’s intestines as a jump rope during a dissection lesson. What did that lesson really teach?
Every year, over 10 MILLION animals are killed for classroom dissection—they don’t die from natural causes. They’re stolen from the wild, taken from animal shelters, or killed in slaughterhouses.
Dissection is bad science: 98 percent of medical schools don’t require it, studies show that students are less interested in science after being forced to dissect, and it’s a super-archaic, cruel way to teach biology and anatomy.
Churchill officials have an obligation to ensure that this never happens again—they need to end all animal dissection immediately. Allowing dissection to continue endorses callousness, disrespect, and cruelty to animals.”
