What a witty retort. Oscar Wilde can rest assured he has no competition from you.

I'm less than impressed with the wit you display. Oscar Wilde can rest comfortably. Let us know how Middle School is going for you.

Freaking whoever started this program should be shot and quartered .(figuratively).
you are a total idiot!!! perhaps you should do your redearch before you go shooting off at the mouth.
these animals are kept under medications so they wont feel a thing. honestly, i am totaly fine with training on essentially dinner, in order to save someones live. unless you are in the medical field and have had someones blood all over your hands......SHUT UP!

PETA is open only to the complete iidots that listens to their mindless philosephies they have absolutly no brains and even though they blabber a lot about COMPASSION they are not compassoinate at all becuase PETA are a whole bunch of stupid annoying hippy freakos with their pea-sized brains and their rather wacko view of the world today

So, just for any of you who just read headlines and then assume that all the facts are summed up in half a sentence. "Live Tissue Training Saves AMERICAN Lives in Hospitals and on the Battlefield" That's what is being done here. The animals are anesthetized prior to and during any TREATMENTS given to them. If any of you would like to donate you body to science this is now the time, i'm sure it would be easier on the population as a whole if you all volunteered. They don't even call them pigs, to those in medicine they are referred to as patients and are treated just like your grandmother would want to be treated

So it's ok that pigs can die so you can have your bacon but it's not ok for them to be used to help US Army Medics properly learn how to treat the types of wound they will see in a combat zone and to learn how to do the proper lufe saving procedures on live tissue instead of a plastic dummy.
You expect US, Army Medics, to save the lives of your family members if they are injured in war but get pissed when we actually get the proper training to do so. Why don't you get your Asses of your couches and cone do my job for a day!! I'm a better medic because of this training...don't worry, no need to thank me when I save your loved ones life!!!
