Asheville Teen Changes Name to Fight for Animal Rights
Monday, October 13 2008
A 19-year-old Asheville teenager claims she has legally changed her name to CutoutDissection.com to protest animal dissections in schools.
The Asheville Citizen-Times reported Asheville High School graduate Jennifer Thornburg now wants to be called Cutout.
The teenager’s new legal name is the URL for an anti-dissection website created by People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals.
The teen formerly known as Thornburg said she began opposing dissections in middle school, when the she became uncomfortable dissecting a chicken wing. While at Asheville High, she helped create a policy that allows students who object to dissections to complete an alternative assignment.
She is now an intern for PETA and said most of her family members still call her Jennifer. Link
If you have been wondering if PETA’s efforts over the last few years to indoctrinate our children with their animal rights agenda have had an affect, this should answer your question. PETA has a reward system that gives points which can be turned into prizes for children who do things like oppose dissection in their school. This should show why it is so important to expose kids to agriculture in their schools.
