LYNCHBURG, Va. -- Complaints by a physicians' group that an anatomy<br><br>
course for some of Virginia's top high school students could lead to<br><br>
"moral indifference" has prompted the program to take down a Web site<br><br>
featuring students posing with pig intestines and fetuses.<br><br><br><br>
Photos of students pretending to put pig intestines in their mouths<br><br>
and posing playfully with pig fetuses raised "serious ethical<br><br>
concerns" about the course called "Blood and Guts," the Physicians<br><br>
Committee for Responsible Medicine said in a letter.<br><br><br><br>
The Web site featured images of students who were enrolled last year<br><br>
in the course, one of the most popular offerings at the Summer<br><br>
Residential Governor's School for Math, Science and Technology at<br><br>
Lynchburg College.<br><br><br><br>
The Washington, D.C.-based physicians' committee contacted the<br><br>
Governor's School program Monday, as well as Gov. Timothy M. Kaine, to<br><br>
complain about the images and use of animal dissections in the course.<br><br>
The Web site was removed the same day.<br><br><br><br>
However, the images were still on the physicians' group's Web site<br><br>
Wednesday, along with an appeal to members to write or call state<br><br>
officials with complaints.<br><br><br><br>
