Fight for Your Rights With Christian Serratos

Christian Serratos is an animal rights all-star. From decrying Canada's annual seal slaughter to turning heads by stripping down for PETA's iconic "I'd Rather Go Naked Than Wear Fur" ad series, the Twilight Saga beauty has never thought twice about speaking up for animals. It should come as no surprise that in her latest peta2 video, Christian is going back to her animal activist roots by speaking out against dissection. Watch Christian Serratos' video to find out how you can help cut out dissection from your school!


When we first met Christian, she was fighting for alternatives to dissection in her Nickelodeon TV series, Ned's Declassified School Survival Guide. Today she's bringing that passion to life by reminding students everywhere that dissection is unnecessary and inhumane and that every student should have the right to ask for a cruelty-free alternative. Every year, millions of animals—including frogs, cats, and fetal pigs—are killed for classroom dissections. Treating animals as nothing more than school supplies teaches students that animals are disposable and are not worthy of our compassion or respect.

You, of course, know better—which is why it's so important to make your voice heard and to set a positive example for your peers by asking your teacher for a humane alternative assignment. More than a dozen states have dissection-choice policies, guaranteeing a student's right to opt out of dissection. Head here to find out if your state is covered, and if not, don't worry! You can take steps to make your classroom cruelty-free. Do your part to cut out dissection by signing our pledge today!

Full Petition Text: 

I want to protect animals by exercising my right not to dissect in school and completing a more humane, safe, and educational assignment. I know that millions of animals are tortured and abused before being killed and sent to schools to be cut up in the name of "science" and will take a stand against this archaic practice and encourage my classmates to do the same. By signing my name, I pledge to do my part to cut dissection out of my school by successfully completing an alternative assignment and showing the administration that education does not have to include murder.

Signed,
[Your Name]
