|My mommy graduated high school 3 years ago and even though she took biology class, she opted NOT to cut up any animals, even the earthworms! Not only does it upset my mommy that people still do this, but the smell of (pardon my spelling) formaldehyde makes her very sick. Instead, mommy's teacher let her go in the computer lab and do "virtual dissections" where the animals were cartoonesque and not realistic in any way. No cats were disected in her school thankfully, but the physiology class that she didn't take did cut up baby pigs, which made mommy very sad. Mommy's cousin is an RN now, but when she went to med school, she had to cut up cats! Mommy was very sad when she heard this. It may be legal to do, but just because something is legal, doesn't mean it's ethical. That's something mommy learned in her college business class, but it applies to more than just business. Mommy hopes that something can be done to change the legality of this horrible school tradition.
