Your Right NOT to Dissect!


Cutting up the corpses of tortured, abused, and slaughtered animals is no way to learn about life. It's just wrong, and you don't have to do it—you have a choice. You have a voice! If your teacher still tries to make you dissect, stay strong and let us help you. We're always here for you!

Use these maps to find out if your state or school district has a dissection-choice policy and to print out leaflets to help you get a humane alternative if it doesn't. If your state does have a dissection-choice policy, your teacher could be REQUIRED to give you an alternative when you ask for one!

No statewide dissection-choice policy exists in this state, but policies may be in place at specific schools or districts.
