Ban Dissection State-Wide After Student Uses Cat’s Intestines as a Jump Rope

Target: Dr. Brian Gottardy, Superintendent of North East Independent School District

Goal: Praise the North East Independent School District for banning cat dissections after student and encourage a similar ban state-wide.

The North East Independent School District in Texas has just made the compassionate choice to ban cat dissections in response to a student’s using a cat’s intestines as a jump rope. Over 10 million animals are killed for school dissections annually, but now the North East Independent School District will be utilizing cruelty-free methods.

Dissection is not only cruel but also ineffective. Not a single medical school requires dissection and studies show that students seem to lose interest in science after forced dissections. The animals used in dissections are often taken from the wild, shelters, or killed in slaughterhouses. Thankfully, there are now digital programs that can teach students about the inner workings of animals’ bodies.

Sign this petition to praise the North East Independent School District for banning cat dissections and to encourage a similar ban throughout the state of Texas.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Dr. Gottardy,

Reportedly, a student from your school district recently used a cat’s intestine as a jump rope. Shortly after this incident, the district decided to ban all cat dissections. I was ecstatic to hear this news.

Not only is dissection cruel, but it is also ineffective. Not a single medical school requires it and studies show that students often lose interest in science after being forced to dissect. Many of the animals used in dissections are stolen from the wild, taken from shelters, or killed in slaughterhouses. Thankfully, digital programs are now available that can teach people about the inner workings of animals’ bodies without all the violence.

Thank you for making the compassionate choice to ban cat dissections. I can only hope more school districts follow in your footsteps.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]
