HUMANE EDUCATION, DISSECTION, AND THE LAW

 

HUMANE EDUCATION, DISSECTION, AND THE LAW (.pdf file - 76.18 KB)

By Marcia Goodman Kramer

Students regularly encounter animal dissection in education, yet humane education receives little attention in animal law. This article analyzes the status of humane education laws in the United States. It discusses the range of statutory protections, from student choice laws to bans on vivisection. The article then analyzes the litigation options for students who do not wish to dissect, including constitutional claims and claims arising under student choice laws. The article concludes by calling for additional legislation to protect students who have ethical objections to dissection.
