#DissectionKills With Noah Cyrus

Noah Cyrus lies on a cold stainless-steel table. Her heart is no longer beating—she has been cut open for a classroom lesson in dissection.

Obviously, Noah is actually alive and kicking. But what if that were your cat on the dissection table?

The dissection industry kills more than 10 million animals every year. The animals are bred in warehouses, taken from nature, or cut from their mothers’ wombs. After being killed, they’re pumped full of chemicals to preserve their bodies. That’s no way to learn about life! You can be scientifically minded and learn about animals and anatomy—and see what animals’ insides look like (if you’re into that sort of thing)—without hurting them.

There are tons of modern, non-animal dissection options, including the exciting new SynFrog, that are kind to animals. From an educational perspective, these non-animal dissection tools are superior to cutting open a dead animal, and they’re very cost-effective for your school, too, because computer programs can be used over and over again, as can many of the physical non-animal models. With computer models, you can study from the comfort of your own home, and they allow you to go back and review your work.

You can end cruel dissection in your school! Check out the “The SOS Guide to Removing Animal Dissection From the Classroom,” the sample letter for your principal or teacher, and the petition sheet to ask your classmates to support the right to refuse to dissect, and download these “Missing” posters to highlight the killing of millions of animals every year for dissection.
