VICTOIRE LA FIN DES EXPERIMENTATIONS SUR LES ANIMAUX A L' UNIVERSITE DE JOHN HOPKINS
SOURCE ET SUITE
LES COCHONS PEUVENT DIRE OUF!!!! ENFIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Care2 readers, you’ve done it again. Your petitions and pleas have helped achieve freedom for animals. Johns Hopkins University decided it will no longer use live animals to train medical students. You’ve helped saved the lives of countless pigs.
“Given that almost all medical schools have stopped using live animals in medical student education and that the experience is not essential, the School of Medicine has decided that the use of live animals in the surgical clerkship should stop,” Johns Hopkins officials told students on May 18. Use of live animals will stop in June 2016.
This is welcome news indeed. Johns Hopkins reviewed the state of medical training and decided using live animals is simply not required anymore. True, this decision comes in part due to pressure from animal activists. Remember, though, that Johns Hopkins is a top flight medical school. Rest assured that this institution would never stop a practice it truly believed was critical to training excellent physicians unless that practice could safely be dropped.
