Christian Serratos Stands Up Against Dissection in New Peta2 PSA
'Twilight' star Christian Serratos and peta2 have released a new PSA for Cut Out Dissection Month, encouraging students to refrain from animal dissection in class.
"These animals haven't donated their bodies to science, and they have the same ability to experience pain and fear as your companion animals at home," the 21-year-old says in the clip.
For those of you who are worried about the consequences of missing out on the assignment, Christian has this to say: "Studies have shown that students who use alternatives to dissection perform as well as -- if not better than -- students who dissect animals. If you're asked to participate in dissection in your school, ask your teacher for an alternative assignment."
Does your school have classes that include animal dissections in the curriculum? Where do you stand on the issue? Watch Christian's new PSA below and let us know your thoughts in the comments.
