Next month, PCRM physicians will lead a peaceful demonstration at Tulane University School of Medicine in New Orleans to bring attention to the facility’s cruel and ineffective use of live pigs in a trauma training course. Please sign this petition that our physicians will present to senior vice president and dean Benjamin Sachs, M.B.

At Tulane, Advanced Trauma Life Support (ATLS) courses typically involve cutting open live, anesthetized pigs and practicing procedures such as inserting a tube and needle into the animals’ chest cavities and cutting into their throats. After the training session, the animals are killed. Tulane continues this inhumane practice even though the American College of Surgeons has approved simulators for this training. The next course begins at Tulane on June 5.
