University of Washington. Shame on YOU.

September 8, 2014 Leave a comment Go to comments

Pigs are going under the knife at the University of Washington (UW). Nurses and paramedics train on the pigs — they practice on the pigs by cutting open their throats, then pushing a breathing tube and wire down. Each pig is practiced on 5 times. Then they’re killed.

It’s horribly cruel, and completely senseless.

Using animals as medical training subjects has been wiped out in most places across the country. Yet, UW refuses to stop killing pigs! Even though it’s well known that human-based medical simulators are much more effective for training and are cruelty-free.

The Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine is working hard to stop the animal suffering at UW. We’ve flooded the school with petitions, we’ve appealed to the administrators, and we’ve tried to educate them about simulators. But we must do more before another pig goes under the knife!

Physicians Committee has physicians, scientists, and veterinarians on our side ñ but we need more compassionate people like you to help. Please help us save animals from cruelty today!
