Such  horrible can go not only against the student´s beliefs, it can also be against their religion. By the time students are told about such requirement to pass the course, it is too late to change science subjects, forcing them to take a very unfair decision:To flunk, or to do something that will violate their code of ethics and ideals. In this day and age, it is not necessary at all for students to murder and dissecate animals in order to learn about other beings bodies.With technology, this horrible and violent practice should end. We will never stop the violence in humans if we dont begin to respect other beings. Meanwhile, before this practice is eliminated, students should be allowed to decide wether to participate in such acts,not forced by a shool teacher or district to do so.

      There are too many option to learn science without those dissections. Animals deserve a life with love and respect.
