Good News:Virtual Reality Surgical System Replaces Practice with Live Pigs

Technologies in many fields are advancing at an ever faster pace. Some of these save lives, and some of these also save lives of animals in a different ways.

Many doctors had to do their training on live animals, but now there are some fascinating replacement technologies that not only save human lives but also the lives of other beings.

Obstetrics and gynecology (OB/GYN) doctors-in-training at renowned Rush University Medical Center in Chicago will no longer practice surgical procedures on live pigs. Thanks to a collaboration between the hospital and PETA, medical residents will now train on a state-of-the-art virtual reality surgical system.

“The surgical experience of our residents takes a huge leap forward as we move toward a more humane and effective method of simulation training,” said Dr. Xavier Pombar, the OB/GYN residency director at Rush University. “Representatives from PETA have worked steadfastly with our department toward this goal. I cannot thank them enough for their efforts.”

Now this news has to spread so that more doctors can learn without harming other beings.

How To Choose Compassion Over Gluttony

Photo:HSI

Is it worth fighting for this one pig? Why make such a big deal about this one animal? Because this one pig stands for so many who are being sent off to slaughter. This one pig can open the eyes of many to show compassion towards a being who cannot escape his fatal fate without your help.

“As part of its Hog Wild Tire Sale event, Granite City Tire & Auto in Alexandria, Minnesota, is planning to send a pig to slaughter and give his or her flesh to the customer who can most closely guess the animal’s weight. Pigs are deeply intelligent, affectionate animals who feel pain and fear, just like the cats and dogs many of us share our homes with.

Granite City Tire & Auto ignored PETA’s request for the pig to be sent to a sanctuary instead of the slaughterhouse, so we’re urging local residents to make their voices heard and let Granite City Tire & Auto know that this barbaric sales ploy is appalling and will not be tolerated by the community.

Please contact Granite City Tire & Auto and urge the company to allow PETA to send the pig who is scheduled for slaughter to a sanctuary instead:

Let Granite City Tire & Auto know that you will not patronize a business that celebrates cruelty to animals and that you will ask your friends and family to refuse to do so as well.”

Please help this one pig, thank you!

As long as people do not know what is going on behind the walls of slaughterhouses they can pretend that life is good for farm animals. Articles like this one can change this.

Even Prison Is Better Than This

Most farm animals no longer actually live on what our imagination pictures as a farm: a place with a red barn, a rooster on a heap of straw welcoming the day with his crow while the hens cackle enthusiastically, picking in the lush meadow. A pink pig rolling happily in a cool mud pond before strutting over to the trough for a delicious vegetarian meal.

No, most farm animals are confined to cages that do not let them move freely, let alone feel the sun on their bodies or roll over happily.

“Imagine being locked in a cage or crate so small you couldn’t extend your arms and legs or even turn around. How long would it be before you felt cramped, frustrated and afraid?

Hundreds of millions of pigs and billions of egg-laying hens spend their entire lives this way. Help us change that — sign our “no cages” pledge!
