India Bans Animal Dissection!

Ā 

The University Grants Commission, a government agency that maintains educational standards across the nation, has announced the phasing out of all animal dissection for experimental purposes at undergraduate and post-graduate levels. In its place will be humane methods such as computerized, or virtual dissection, which has already been shown to be less costly and more effective in the teaching of anatomy. Experts have said that such a ban on the cruel and antiquated practice will save the lives of at least 19 million innocent insects and animals every academic year.

This is wonderful news!!

We await the day when there is no more animal experimentation.
