Cut_Class_Not_Frogs_tee.jpgWhen I was in high school, I remember dreading the unit in my biology class where we had to dissect a worm and a frog. Back then, I didn’t know anything about animal rights, but still felt something was wrong with what we were doing. I really regret not having spoke up for what I believed in.

Now that I know better, I speak my mind about dissection every chance I can get. In fact, sometimes I even rock peta2’s “Cut Class Not Frogs” tee to let people know exactly what I think.

To celebrate Cut Out Dissection Month (being October), peta2 is giving away that very tee!

The person that leaves the best comment about dissection wins!

Contest ends October 23rd 2007, and the winner will be notified by October 30th.

    ok so im a senior in high school and this is the second time they have tried to get me to slice and dice a frog. how messed up is that. and how i have to write a persuasive essay over why i think its wrong. at first i was just gunna do a virtual frog dissection and be done with it but the teacher said i have to identify all the parts as a test on a real frog. what kind of messed up stuff is that. i love animals and i could never cut into one as a project or whatever in class. id rather fail this class and not graduate then slice into a poor defenseless animals. other classes in my school have dissected sharks, pig fetuses, and i just found out recently that next year they are dissecting cats. WTF! how someone can cut into a harmless animal and still get a goodnights sleep is beside me. they say animal dissection and testing is how we get most of our medicine and such. but how is putting perfume on a rabbit or lip gloss on a monkey helping us in any way. things they test on us can easily be tested on humans too. animals have feelings.they get mad, they cry, they feel loneliness. how are we so different from them. just cuz we can talk and walk on two feet. big deal! they are living breathing feeling loving creatures too and they deserve a chance just as well. weither it be a shark or a frogy. dissection is wrong, wrong, wrong! there’s no real way to express my opinion other then just telling it like i just did. i actually feel my point has gotten across unlike it did with my teacher and principal. im not saying all this just to win some tshirt. im saying it because its how i feel!

    okay.
    animal dissection is absolutely the most ridiculous thing they could make you do.
    i just moved to tampa && i found out that the anatomy class at my school dissects cats. && last year they dissected a pregnant cat.
    i dont understand why you have to take away an animals life for that.
    as a matter of fact im starting a petition to end the dissection.okay.

    as a matter of fact im starting a petition to end the dissection.<3
    i dont see anything benefitial about cutting up an animal for mere education. there are many alternative solutions to dissection && i think we can learn just as much about the body && how it functions without stealing a life away.
    all you really have to do is layer transparencies with the body && its parts. && for every orgna that youre 'supposed' to remove, you just drop a layer of the transparency.!.
    no cutting of an animals insides are required.
    && i think that you would learn better that way because you wouldnt be distracted by the actual dead animal sitting in froont of you being ripped to shreds.
    && the distribution corporations for the animal dissections are the absolute most outrageous companies. they are by far 'dirty businesses'
    there have even been times when the trucks pulled up with the dead dogs && still had living dogs inside fighting for their lives.
    && whenever they say that its better to learn about the body by cutting up a frog or cat or rat or whatever than cutting up a human.
    i think that the people who go by that logic should be getting cut up.
    they should literally save the planet && kill themselves.
    no. that was a horrible thing to say and i dont really mean it.
    but why dont they just use a manequin or a scale model like they do in health class for CPR && learning about the body part. there could be removable pieces && whatever else they can imagine to throw in.
    anyway i know i wrote a lot but im dedicated to animal rights && really felt like voicing my opinion.
    i still plan on starting the petition so if anyone could help out...
    please do.
    my email is caprice441@aol.com
    && whether i win the shirt or not isnt that important. though it would be pretty nice.<3

    Dissection.
    We’ll be going through it this year.
    I raised my hand, dispite my horribly shy and nervous personality. I was shaking. Hard. My hand was basically waving in the sky.
    /DOCTOR/ Madrid, as she loves to emphasize, called on me.
    In a shaky voice, I asked if there was an alternative assignment.
    She said BOOKWORK.
    First off, it seemed she was PUNISHING me for not wanting to cut up one of my friends.
    Yes, frogs are my friends. I read my favorite book, The Time Traveller’s Wife, to them. I talk to them. I cry in front of them. And I love them. I love them, not as an “animal”. I love them just like my human friends. If not more. I love frogs.
    I’d rather cut myself open and let my classmates study how humans work, than watch my peers slice open my best friend. I’d cry.
    And there’s nothing worse than seeing a worm writhe under a scalpel. I know. My father tried to make me go fishing. Many, many times. And he said he’d “treat me” by letting me shove the worm onto the hook. When I chickened out, my dad did it for me, and shoved the suffering friend in my face, trying to “teach me the right way”. The right way? Making another living, breathing thing suffer, drown, die, and be eaten… That’s the right way?
    Then I’d rather be completely wrong for the rest of my life.
    Frogs are my sisters and brothers.
    Worms are my sisters and brothers.
    All species inhabiting the earth are my sisters and brothers.
    They aren’t “animals”.
    I’d say they were like mini humans, but Frogs and Worms don’t slap us on a dissecting pan and cut our eyes out. They don’t slice our stomachs open. They don’t pull out organs with their hands. They don’t laugh and throw it at each other. They don’t call it “education” nor “teaching”.
    If you ask me – carnivorous, immature, disgusting humans aren’t humans at all.
    THEY are the creatures.
    THEY are the animals.
    THEY are the beasts.
    THEY are the monsters that have dominance in this world.
    And that’s the most frightening it could ever get.

    I’m in 7th grade and my science teacher is making us dissect frogs. In class I asked if the frogs were killed or died of natural causes, and she told me that she wasn’t sure, but that they were probably killed. She said that it’s better to cut open frogs than to cut open humans. That made me so angry, because a frog is a living thing, and it’s life is worth as much as a human’s. I lost all respect for my teacher that day… I say that if she wants us to learn anatomy so much, we should cut open her. So many people think that animals are below them, and really, animals are above humans, since animals don’t think they rule everything nad have the right to hack apart other species for no good reason.

    When I first heard in my science class we were dissecting worms I though, “ewww that’s nasty, I don’t wanna hurt a worm.” (which sounds a little wimpy)then we did it and got a A-. Then I was like okay so it was a worm and there are alot more in this world but it’s still a living, breathing, thing on this earth and why are we killing it? Then the frogs came along but I thought I might just skip it and get a zero, then I found out I would have to writte a 5 paragraph essay. I decided against it cause I really didn’t want to write all that ( I know it’s selfish). The day came and i couldn’t handle it, I asked my science teacher if somehow we could do this on the computer like we did with the pig or if I could be excuse because I don’t murder innocent animals. None of that worked, he looked at me like I was crazy and said, “You will do this and if you don’t I will fail you.” I wouldn’t afford to get a “F” on a dissection. I went along with it. The next day I made a sign and taped it on my science book and binder with a frog with X’s for it’s eyes and beside it it said, “I rather cut class than frogs.”(i got it from you guys) Every chance I could I said something about animal abuse and I really think I put him on the last nail. I showed my friends and put on my myspace what animal testing really was. They were shocked! I decided to do something more drastic, I know I should have not done it but I did it anyway. I asked him, “Why are we dissecting these animals?” He answered, “Because we need to know about animals and the way there body works.” I Said, “So how can we see how there body works if they are dead?” He said nothing. I continued, “How can we kill innocent animals just in the name of science? Are you really proud to say yeah i kill animals all in the name of science?” I was satisfied, I went to my seat and sat down. We still do the dissection’s but I think he understood where I stand. If people wanted to know how we lived we would just start killing us off. So when I think about it how can that be right? We say we love animals but we can cut one open? I never will understand why we still have to dissect them but I understand that I will never be a scientist. Thank you!!

    Why should we get to dissect frogs? They are living breathing things not just some learning tool! I don’t care how educational it is there are a million other ways that we could be taught the same thing. I find it hard to believe that its just too “expensive” to offer students the option of not dissecting or that its “necessary” to pass the class. If the murder of another living thing is a must to passing science than call me a failure.

    When I was in high school, we actually skipped the frog dissection and went straight from worms to fetal pigs. Fetal pigs! Disgusting, right? It was like a week-long lab exercise with college lab books and everything. Anyway, it really proved how lame the justification for high school lab dissections is (ostensibly, education), because everyone treated it like a huge joke – flying and dancing pigs everywhere. And this was in a college level AP bio class, mind you. A dozen poor pig fetuses lost their lives for the amusement of a bunch of 17-year-old nerds. And did I mention that they were FETAL PIGS?!? Strangely, there were no pro-life picket lines to be seen…

    I never could dissect the frog. I actually got in trouble for walking out of class and spending the rest of the class period in the bathroom… i fell asleep though and ended up missing the whole day. I used to catch frogs when i was little, my dad would try to take them from me so that he could cook them but everytime i would throw it in the water so it would be safe. Back then I really didnt know about animal rights, imean i was only like 8, but everytime i set them free i felt really good and eventually became an animal activist now i plan on finding a way to save the frogs next semester (thats when dissecting occurs) even if i have to free them by hand.
    if anyone wants to know how it goes, because i WILL do something, contact me at pyro.punk@yahoo.com on myspace (I never check e-mails on yahoo). i dont care if i get a shirt frogs have rights.

    this year at harman highschool we must dissect frogs. We have no alternative because our school cannot afford. i myself and at least two other students are completely and totally against this for several reasons. i do not under any circumstance believe it is okay in any way to kill and cut open a nother creature for something as useless and unimportant as a grade. Please help my classmates and i support our decision and voice our oppinions and maybe help others to see the wrongness and cruelty of this.

    Dissection is an act of animal cruelty.
    I never got the point of dissection frogs and worms who were killed for no reason. Since when is it educational to dig a knife into a frogs stomach, then tear out it’s inside like it was a toy stuffed animal. Not to mention they died in horrific ways. They just didn’t die of old age, it was by drowned, electrocution, and the worst possible things that you can think of. We have kids thinking it is okay to take a scalpel to a worm and frog and other animals. What is the world coming to? It is horriable animal cruelty.
    There are so many human projects we can do. There is virtual dissection, or reading a book about frogs. There is no point in wasting a million frogs life every single year, because some kids who don’t understand can dissect.

    Yeah, Disection is important, I want to be a scientist, go to medical school and find a cure for luekmia. I am going work on cadavers but those people had a choice.They don’t I was pysched when we were going to discect fetile pigs. But I looked at it and thought of how deprived it’s life is. I started to cry, I ended up feeling so bad for the pig I started to throw-up in disgust. And besides, It’s such a bio-hazard. You have to soak them in bleach and bleeh. Yeah it’s hands on com’n but really? I trying to have a virtual program at my school, but they say it teaches students fundamentals.
    P.S. Dissection is not only wrong for the animals who can’t speak but for students, Hello? You had to name the pig, Then you cut open pig. After you named it It’s like your pet now!
    Don’t cut open your pets. If I win the shirt, I’ll wear the shirt on dissection day, and maybe, at the end of the day, have some newly discovered vegatarions,Cause I will raise MY VOICE for the ANIMALS WHO CAN’T

    Frogs are meant to sit on a lillypad and catch flies, not lay helplessly straped on a table while stupide kids cut them open. Whats even the piont of doing this, it so much easyer to go on the computer and do it virtually. And then you don’t have to hurt a defencless animal. I personally think it’s stupide and I will NEVER dissect.

    Dissection is gross. Years ago, before I got into animal rights, we had a frog dissection. And the kids in my class had no respect for the frogs. After we were done, some kids cut off the frogs’ limbs. Then they chopped off the head and tried to find the brain- for fun. This proves that there is nothing to learn from dissection. And it is sick that kids would enjoy mutilating an animal. I’m so glad that I have never had to do dissection since then. But if we ever do, I will make sure to get an alternative.

    what do you mean ,theres nothing wrong with cutting open an innocent animal just so you can see their insides to study. Nothing inhumane about ordering a box of dead frogs and passing them around to a classroom of students. its not like schools are trying to promote violence and creulty to animals, right?

    Disection is torture. Some people don’t even know what animals go thru just for them to eat. But then again some people do, and tend to just ignore the fact.
    Disection is mean, and unfair. Why would someone want to cut a poor frog? When that frog should be jumping on lily pads, and doing what all frogs do? I mean, what if that frog had a family. Would you like it if your mom or dad just died? I don’t think you would.

    Two years ago in biology class we were asked to bring frogs to dissect. I couldn’t even bring myself to catch a frog, but I got help because I thought I really had to make the grade. That night I put my frog in a jar and put some leaves and a little water in it (I don’t know, I just thought it was so cruel for him to be in the jar and not in his home, wherever it may be). I even named him “Kermit”. The next morning I took my bottle to school with me, hesitant, but willing to get the job done. But as soon as I learned that we had to hit our frogs’ heads first to immobilze it but keep it alive, I just couldn’t do it. I looked like a fool in front of everyone, but I cried and didn’t do it. I saw all my classmates hitting their frogs, some of them even stepping on them. I dont see why these animals have to suffer, just so students around the world can make the grade. I surely didn’t make the grade on that class, but I still graduated with honors. I made a different project instead. And Kermit, I set him free as soon as I got home.

    I’m a sophomore in high school. I am also a newly signed vegan for about five months now and just this year I started Biology. Every Friday we have to come up with an article about whatever you choose and since school started u have done nothing but write my articles on the things that I find on Peta2. It’s something I believe in very strongly about. We have been through the worm dissection which I chose not to do. My peers and teachers asked me why I chose not to and all I told them was that I wasn’t going to participate in something like that. I also told them that I was not going to do the dissection of a frog which was going to take place in mid-oct. how ironic right? Im going to try and convince my Bio teacher that we don’t need to do this activity to learn about frogs and how things work. I’ll try and post up on that as soon as I know the results.
    I hope to win this shirt and spread around the word like I’ve done with the stickers that I’ve Received from Peta2 but with this i could get out there and get the message acrossed about this awesome and true hearted quote “Cut Class Not Frogs” People need to know these things that we the fans and people that work with Peta2 know. If we get that message out there then we will have bigger voice in the world and that’s my number one goal right now.
    Thanks,

    Dissection?
    What is there to say? Well, other than no.
    You see, Dissection is defined as cutting something open to study it closer. This verb can be used in many ways at school. We dissect words, (taking apart the prefixes, suffixes and root word) the school lunches (who knows what that is?) and in some very sad cases, animals.
    Our teachers tell us we do this to get a closer look at the internal organs of the creatures around us. They also tell us that we have to do it to pass. They even give the proper instructions on how to do it. But, who tells the whole truth these days? What are they not telling us?
    What the teachers don’t speak of is the killing of a living thing, the life that it once lived and the other alternatives there are to dissection.
    I didn’t dissect a frog in Biology, nor did I dissect the worm. I don’t need to brag about that though. I heard alot that day, as I sat and looked out the window while my peers were busy doing their lab. Students were laughing, giggling, gossiping, metal scraping; Girls were screaming, and boys were whooping. None of which sounded like a learning experience.
    So now it is your turn, you can choose your fate. Do you choose to be similar to the ignorant freshman my year in biology ;Or do you choose to talk to your teacher see what she can do for an alternative assignment, or maybe just having to tell her that you will have to crush your grade with an F?
    The choice isn’t hard, but it isn’t easy. It shows morals and goes against the cookie cutter shape that society has made up. Stand up for yourself, and the ones without voices.
    Don’t dissect.

    It would be really cool if we could remove one eyeball from every person who believes frog dissection or any other animal dissection is moral. Then we can dissect the eyeballs instead. That way, we are learning two things at the same time:
    1. The anatomy of the human eye
    &
    2. What happens to idiots who think animal dissection is okay.

    A person makes you choose: Dissect a frog or dissect a sheep’s heart.
    I say: I rather dissect you.
    [You kinda look like a frog anyway]
    I say we take one eyeball from every human who believe frog dissestion are okay, and use the eyeballs as a substitute. That way we gain two pieces of knowledge at the same time.
    1. How the anatomy of the human eye works.
    &
    2. “This is what happens to assholes who don’t give a crap about living animals such as frogs”
    …Happy dissection

    I had to dissect frogs in Middle School in 6th garde before, and i told my teacher that it was gross and i would not do it. Some other kids felt the same way and did the same thing that i did. We ended up getting an ‘F’ on the project then, but after telling my parents why i got the ‘F’ then they understood and were behind me the whole way.
    Now I’m taking biology next semester and i will have to again tell the teacher that i think it’s wrong and go through the same thing again most likely. So i stand up for those frogs, and any other animal that needs to be dissected just to get a grade. Is a grade worth a life? No. it’s not.
    So if I win the tee-shirt, then i will wear it on Dissection day and be VERY proud of myself, and I’m sure other people will be too.

    Disection is torture. They kill frogs and other animals so we can torture them when they are dead. It’s teaching students that crulety towards animals is fine. Whether it’s for science, research, or whatever reason you have, it’s NOT okay. It’s cruel, abusive, and sick. Who could cut into an animal knowing that they were murdered? Students should have a choice to dissect, just like we have a choice to vote. Join in the fight and stand up for something you believe in.

    Dissection is completely unecessary.
    The only reason I can think of for dissecting an animal would be for a vet student to learn the analogy of an animal’s insides. Even then, they would not have to do it in their highschool years.
    Most teenagers get a thrill out of cutting up a fetal pig or frog. I believe that’s the only reason teachers still use dissection, and because of tradition.
    I will be very vocal about not dissecting. For one, I think it is completely wrong to use animals for our own benefit. And, I don’t need to know what the insides of an animal look like! I have no plans of ever needing that information.
    When dissection time rolls around, I will clearly state I’m for animal rights and won’t even be in the room. And even if it is not required, I’ll right an essay on why it’s outdated and cruel. Maybe I can even get dissection taken out of our school. I encourage all students to also make sure their school knows of the horrors of dissection, and all the wonderful alternatives.

    I don’t understand why people think that animals are worth less then themselves.
    You don’t see people killing their own species and dissecting them in health class to learn about their own organs.
    I really think that is unfair to actually have to sit through that.
    I’m pretty sure they wouldn’t like to be killed by something more then 30 times their size and then cut open for no good reason.
    There are plenty of programs kids can learn about that kind of thing with.
    People these days are really cruel.

    Not only is dissection disgusting it’s totally useless. We have tons of books with pictures of frogs or any other animal that you can learn what they look like inside. You dont need to cut them open in class, just for a good grade. More people need to STAND up for animals. And not cut them open. Besides why do you need dissection in 7-8th grade? There’s no point. People wonder why little kids start hurting and torturing animals at such a young age. It’s because the school is teaching them that it’s fine. WHEN IT’S NOT!

    Dissection is unnatural. In the 21st century we have the technology to do virtual dissections, so why don’t we? People are stuck in the past and may believe that “the real thing” is the only way to go. Sacrificing lives isn’t advancing our minds, it’s bringing us back to the days of the barbarians. I will never dissect because I don’t believe I should have to murder to get my education.
    Also, not dissecting is not just better for the animals but for the schools who choose not to dissect. Think about it: no messes, only having to buy the equipment once (instead of buying the animals for every student every year because the virtual dissections can be used again and again) and no worry about animal activists bugging the administrators until they give in (because that’s going to happen eventually, might as well avoid it).
    Many students find dissection uncomfortable; some for moral reasons and others because they might be a bit squeamish. People recognise that what they’re dissecting for biology was once living and can’t get over that. I can’t say I blame them, taking a life “in the name of furthering your education in science” is selfish, wouldn’t you say? I mean, after all, would you like to be dissected? Think about it, suffering a cruel death by gassing or other unhumane means because your body could be used to “teach” others about anatomy. If humans were the ones being dissected, I think everyone would opt for virtual dissection.
    What about those animals that died of a “natural cause” though? Technecally, starvation could be considered a natural cause. Brilliant, a company can seem humane by not feeding the animals and letting them die like that. Sure, some of them might have actually died of natural causes, but does that mean we should disturb their eternal rest by cutting up their body? No, to me it doesn’t justify it at all.
    Hopefully people will continue to speak up for what they believe is right and soon enough, dissection will be history.

    I remember last year in science that we had dissected a worm, frog, fish, large cricket thing, and some dissected a bird.
    when I had stepped into the room i felt my heart sink.
    the smell and the look of these dead animals was just wrong.
    i had went up to one of my friends and started to complain about what was happening.
    (the dissection unit went for 1 week)
    the next day i wore all the peta2 stickers that i could find.
    my friend and i was not going to let these poor little creatures get hurt anymore.
    then after school one day i went up to the principal and told him what harm we are doing.
    and how would he like it if he was one of those animals just being born to get killed.
    he finally said after about an hour or so, that he would try to do something about it.
    Frogs and any other kind of animal who gets tested on or has to die for dissection should be able to live.
    i know for a fact that if i was one of those animals, i definitely would not want to be killed.
    it is so terrible that so many animals have to suffer through this.

    Disection is stupid. Why would you cut up
    an animal when there are already other alternatives? Because of technology, we don’t
    need to anymore. Why do people have to be so
    stubborn? Why are people stuck in the past?

    I believe that dissection is totally useless these days, not only with frogs but with any animals. It’s a disgusting practice, and (although i’m basing this only on my own biology class), the students don’t seem to do that well on their quizzes on the structure of whatever it is they sliced open. Dissection is a game of whoever can cut something up fastest, not an educational tool! Because of this, I don’t dissect, and encourage everyone else to.
    I mean, if you’re absolutely desperate for a kinetic learning class, you could always do what i do, and “dissect” various plastic models of the ‘real thing’.

    Imagine someone taking your mother to a factory, brutally beating her untill she bleeds. Then pumping embalming fluid into her body, while she is alive, writhing and screaming in pain. Then vacume sealing her dead body and sending it to a high school. There kids rip her open and think its a game to squish her organs and eyes (little do they know the chemical used in embalming could be hurting them). She is then sent to a dump somewhere and rots.
    Lucky for you, your mother is not a frog… but those things on the cold steel plates? They are.

    This is so stupid, i mean what would you do if a frog came and cut you open just to see whats insde, this is so crul why can we just have online dissection. This is so stupid. People need to learn that animals have lifes to but how to respect them. I mean the frgs have lifes to. they have kids and a lady//or man friend just like us just because we dont talk the same dosent mean the schools can go and cut them up just to see them once then throww them away. god. They get a fucken life and chop themselfs us.

    Not only do the animals used for disection suffer a painful and horrible death, they are also basically used to teach children that cruelty to animals is perfectly fine ! So much for respect. By allowing students to disect, they get the idea that animals are simply things to mock around with, and to use for our education and entertainment, rather than learning moral values about respect for life. Children don’t think about what happens to these animals before they end up on their cutting boards. Animals are ripped from their lives to allow a group of ninth graders to joke around with their organs, and it seems no one cares that animals are no less living, breathing, loving and sensitive beings than us. So many plastic 3D dissection models exist, which are actually more educational, as well as absolutely animal friendly, meaning that by getting them a school improves double. There is no reason for schools to continue this cruel practice, so take your stand, make your point, and urge your school to respect life and drop the dreadful drama we call dissection.

    Dissection; Don’t examine frogs, examine your reason.
    Dissection is a thing of the past, we all know what horror the frogs have to face. Killing innocent creatures in class, just shouldn’t be done. Just because we want to examine them, doesn’t give us a single reason as to why they should die for it.
    Period.
