We have some great news for animals today! Following a request from PETA, the District of Columbia¬†Public Schools has voluntarily adopted a progressive dissection-choice policy. This means that students in Washington, D.C., can take a stand against chopping up dead animals at school and instead learn using modern computer software and other humane methods. How awesome is that?! ūüėÄ Want even more good news? The nation’s capital is not alone! Many districts around the country¬†as well as¬†15 states already have similar policies. Check if your state is one of them!

    As a kid, I was and am still curious about the great big world we live in, and I thought nothing of animal abuse. But for some or no completely good reasons, I was getting sicker and weaker. Then one day I heard about PETA while I was on the internet. I got a little curious, and I went veg after finding out meat was one of the reasons I was sicker. Right now, I'm still trying to give up meat for my health. But I'm getting there!
