Tell Congress to End Military Trauma Training on Animals!

Shot in their faces.

Stabbed in their hearts and lungs.

Mutilated by having their limbs hacked off.

This has been the reality for live pigs, goats, and other sensitive animals used for the sake of cruel and archaic military trauma training exercises in the United States.

The good news? The U.S. Congress has introduced new lifesaving legislation that, if enacted, would phase out the use of animals in these crude exercises in favor of life-like human-patient simulators. The use of these simulators is totally humane, and studies show that they are JUST as effective as the use of animals. Simulators accurately mimic bleeding, breathing difficulties, responses to medications, and even death. Unlike mutilating and killing animals, training on simulators allows medics and soldiers to practice on accurate anatomical models and repeat vital procedures until all trainees are confident and proficient.

That's pretty awesome, right?

Please send a polite e-mail to your congressional representatives urging them to SUPPORT the Battlefield Excellence through Superior Training (BEST) Practices Act (S. 587 / H.R. 1095), which will spare animals' lives and ensure that service members learn lifesaving medical skills using the most effective modern technology.
