In classroom biology experiments at Arizona State University (ASU), hundreds of live frogs are cut open so that students can watch the animals’ hearts beat, and pregnant rats are killed so that students can dissect them and experiment on their organs. In other experiments, hundreds of rabbits have holes cut into their necks, are injected with various drugs, and are then killed.
Please take a minute of your time to urge Arizona State University to end these classroom animal experiments. Send an e-mail to Ernest Calderón, president of the Arizona Board of Regents, and politely ask him to replace these laboratories with some of the humane, non-animal teaching methods that are available and in use in physiology courses at other universities.
