Daniella Monet: Don't Dissect!

Daniella Monet: Don't Dissect!

Check out Daniella Monet‘s brand-new peta ad!

The 21-year-old Victorious starlet opened up to the animal-rights organization about her views on class dissection for science classes. Daniella shared, “”The one memory I have, as far as dissecting goes, is in elementary school. I cried—a lot—and I was actually sent to the nurse’s office, and I used the phone to call my mom and say that I couldn’t do it.”

She added on, “It’s gross. It’s sad. I do think teachers should provide an alternative…And if kids stand up for themselves … it’ll definitely make a world’s difference.”

    In my school it wasn’t compulsory. You either dissect or you sit outside until it’s over.

    As a senior earth and environmental science major in college, i find it extremely ignorant for her to say “it’s gross”. Throughout my various biology, ecophysiology, ecosystem ecology courses,i have found that dissection is extremely beneficial. Those of us who use dissection in scientific research do so to learn about how these animals live. It’s not done for fun or in futility. Likewise, dissection is a very valuable practice in medicine. Despite how gross it sounds, doctors dissect human cadavers before entering the medical field. I, for one, am very thankful for such a practice, as I expect my doctors to know exactly what they’re dealing with when performing any surgery on me!

    That being said, i have no idea who this girl is. I’m sure she’s doing this with good intent, but to generalize all dissection as “gross” is incredibly ignorant.

    @cal67: I agree wholeheartedly.

  • Tina

    I meant I agree with cal67, not Daniella. Dissections provide indepth looks into how the body of animals and even humans work.

  • Patricia

    I agree with @cal67 as well. I mean COME ON, it’s not like people dissect for the fun of messing around with its body.

    In my opinion should be done but dissection class!
    It is used for student knowledge. And for me is key.
    I Veterinary Medicine, and I think dissection is essential for learning. Animals “donate” their lives to help science to help them soon.
    Quit talking like that is not very easy. My first day of dissection was not very good. But we have to understand what is needed. And we must open our eyes to other fundamentals, as in my town gathered in the street animals are killed abruptly, as if they were animals. What is not! . I ask you to seek help animals in need, not speaking ill in ways that are used for the student’s knowledge.
    Thank you for your attention:) The animals will thank you.

    i never dissected anything we weren’t allowed 2 do it in school. These animals are dead is not they’re are being killled so they can be dissected.

    We never did dissections in class of live animals, only like ox’s hearts etc…

    I agree with cal67….and @botox melbourne, if you consider this inhumane, I really hope you haven’t actually had botox. In case you don’t know, botox is a weakened form of food poisoning.

    People, the problem is that, think, how many students are in a class, 20? 30? and how many classes are? 2, 5, maybe 10?! (In my high school there is 10 classes of each grade) and then, how many high schools are in all the country?, multiply, how many animals are killed? The teachers already know how the animal is inside, show us some graphics of the animal or something but don’t make us kill them. (Sorry if I spelled something wrong, I speak spanish and I’m learning english)
