UPDATE, 4/29: Thank you, so much, to all who signed this petition and spread the word. Unfortunately, NDSU and MeritCare went through with the training this week, but that doesn't mean the fight is over, either at this school or in terms of PCRM's larger campaign to save animals from use in training and experiments. Please see this blog post for more, including for the next petition we all need to sign to make this year the last year animals are killed for NDSU/MeritCare's trauma training program.
As noted in more detail in this post, the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine has mounted a campaign to stop the use and killing of pigs in a trauma training course at North Dakota State University scheduled for this coming Monday, April 27.
Please see the PCRM campaign page for more details.
In addition to signing the petition hosted here, you may also place a respectful phone call to university president Joseph A. Chapman at 701-231-7211. But if you go that route, please do remain calm and respectful. As PCRM notes, "Being polite is the most effective way to help these pigs."
The text of this Change.org petition is based on a letter composed by Kinship Circle. Much thanks go to that dedicated organization; please support it.
