[from Christian Science Monitor]

A single whiff of formaldehyde transports many adults back to biology
class and dissection. It's hard to forget the odor that arose from trays
of rubbery, preserved frogs or fetal pigs.

But that rite of passage is now being challenged by students who find
dissection objectionable on animal-rights grounds.

The issue came up recently on the prime-time television show "8 Simple
Rules." The character Kerry, one of the two daughters, becomes concerned
about frog dissection in her school and organizes a sit-in to protest the
practice.

As animal-rights groups have stepped up their campaign to stop the use of
animals for research, the message is being heeded by some students in
middle and high school.
