You may not yet have the choice to drive or the choice to vote—but you do have the choice to stop cutting up animals in your science class. Think about it this way: How many times in your middle- and high-school careers are you going to have the opportunity to change a project that your teacher assigns? Not many—but dissection is definitely an assignment you CAN change. Click here to see if your state offers a dissection-choice policy. If your state doesn’t, click here to find out how you can get an alternate assignment—and e-mail us at if you need help.

By refusing to dissect, you’re not helping just one animal—you’re showing your teacher and the rest of your class that you know dissecting animals is wrong. You’re setting an example for others to follow, and that saves the lives of frogs, cats, fetal pigs, and many other animals each year.
