Animal dissection as an aspect of Zoology curriculum is about 90 years old. However, shouldn't we debate whether there is an effective way of learning the ropes without actually dissecting real animals.
While some students may feel emotionally and support the idea, some may find it strange to study anatomy without dissection. Its only a matter of switching to other ways of studying the subject and getting used to it. If we think only from the human point of view, one living being has no authority to kill the other for ones selfish interst.
People who understand this are also aware of cruelity towards animals being prepared for dissection and its ill effects on humans. Animals are often embalmed with formaldehyde, a chemical preservative linked to cancer of the throat, lungs, and nasal passages. Formaldehyde can also damage the eyes, cause asthma attacks and bronchitis, and severely irritate the skin.
Net-net, its harmful for both, the humans and the animals. This act needs to be condemned! Sign and show your support!
