LYNCHBURG, Va. -- Complaints by a physicians' group that an anatomy

course for some of Virginia's top high school students could lead to

"moral indifference" has prompted the program to take down a Web site

featuring students posing with pig intestines and fetuses.

Photos of students pretending to put pig intestines in their mouths

and posing playfully with pig fetuses raised "serious ethical

concerns" about the course called "Blood and Guts," the Physicians

Committee for Responsible Medicine said in a letter.

The Web site featured images of students who were enrolled last year

in the course, one of the most popular offerings at the Summer

Residential Governor's School for Math, Science and Technology at

Lynchburg College.

The Washington, D.C.-based physicians' committee contacted the

Governor's School program Monday, as well as Gov. Timothy M. Kaine, to

complain about the images and use of animal dissections in the course.

The Web site was removed the same day.

However, the images were still on the physicians' group's Web site

Wednesday, along with an appeal to members to write or call state

officials with complaints.
