India bans dissection
From ANIMAL PEOPLE, May 2001:
NEW DELHI–“I have finally had dissections banned in schools
in India,” Indian minister of state for social justice and
empowerment Maneka Gandhi e-mailed to ANIMAL PEOPLE on May 1, 2001.
“Three years ago I went to court and made dissection optional. This
month I have had the ban put into effect. This is what can be done
if one is mad enough.”
