National Center for Animal Law urges medical school to end use of live animals

December 19, 2007

(Portland, Ore.)—The National Center for Animal Law, based at Lewis & Clark Law School, has asked Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences in Bethesda Maryland to stop using live animals for medical school training. Uniformed Services University is one of 10 medical schools in the country that has not moved to alternative educational options. Laura Ireland Moore, executive director of the center, states their letter of request is not a legal threat but an urgent message to “do the right thing.” Read more from Maryland’s Gazette.
