Massachusetts General Hospital ends lethal sheep lab.

This fall, students who are enrolled in the Advanced Trauma Life Support (ATLS) training course at Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) will no longer be practicing on live sheep.

The decision to end the use of sheep comes after a long campaign by the Physician's Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM), along with support from other organizations, including Farm Sanctuary, physicians, activists and hospital employees that kicked off with a protest in 2009 calling for non-animal alternatives. Since then, over 38,000 emails were sent to hospital administrators opposing the practice.
