Medical Schools Save Animal Lives

Cats and other animals are often used to practice medical procedures.

The Medical College of Wisconsin and the University of Virginia School of Medicine have announced they will end the use of laboratory animals in training medical students. With the advent of sophisticated technology, no student preparing for a career in human medicine ought ever to be training on live nonhuman animals.

However, there are still five schools in the United States that use laboratory animals to train medical students.

Send notes of thanks to the Medical College of Wisconsin and the University of Virginia School of Medicine thanking them for joining with the majority of medical schools in disbanding the use of laboratory animals in training medical students.

Take a moment too to write to the five schools where laboratory animals are still being used.
