Hi guys, I recently turned vegetarian after a bad experience with live dissection in my biology class. I refused the lab and my teacher later asked me to do the dissection virtually. I later refused that, too. Now, he's making me write an essay explaining the pros/cons of both live/virtual dissection. He said it can't toally be my own opinion so I thought I'd ask around here and see if anybody would give me theirs. I really can't think of any pros... Thanks!

he might want you to reference so you'd be better off getting facts and possibly even statistics from other websites...as neutral as possible.<br><br>
If you are going to get opinions from random people on a messageboard, it will need to be more balanced than from a veg messageboard probably. I'm sure we have some pro-dissection people here but it will be biased to anti-dissection.

HowEVAHHH....I don't like dissection. Unless like, the animal died of natural causes or whatever. Even if I wasn't a vegetarian, I wouldn't like the idea of it, just because it's kind of...gross.<br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/spew.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":spew:">

Well the major, and probably only, pro is that you can see the real thing. I've done both kinds, and I know I gained much better appreciation of how the body works from dissecting a real animal. It's kind of hard to put into words (especially as I don't want to get graphic).

What I can't believe is that he's still conducting real dissections when he has virtual available.<br><br><br><br>
I know that doesn't answer your question at all but I also think you'd be better of doing some research at the library and referencing it.
