In case you missed it:

And on a personal note, my daughter is currently opting out of dissection in her college anatomy and physiology class on ethical grounds. The students are cutting apart baby pigs. It took some negotiation with her professor who was initially disinclined to allow an opt out, but they worked out an arrangement. As she explained to her prof, she was raised vegan, has remained so, and even as an independent adult living across the country from her family, adheres to a strict code of nonviolence. Cutting up a piglet is not an activity she can engage in. The professor agreed. It’s not only time to ban dissection, it is also time to take pigs off menu.

Thank you for being a part of the discussion.
