Maryland State House

Call Today: Ask Your Delegate to Support House Bill 289 and Modernize Medical Training in Maryland

Please urge your Maryland delegate to support House Bill 289 to prohibit the use of animals for medical training. This bill will ensure that Maryland’s future physicians are receiving the most ethically and educationally superior training methods possible.

When you call, please be polite and encouraging. Here are some talking points:

  • My name is [your name] in [your city or town].
  • I am calling to ask [the name of your delegate] to support H.B. 289, which has a hearing tomorrow, Thursday, Feb. 11.
  • The bill would ensure that medical training in Maryland meets national standards by requiring that human-relevant methods be used instead of animals.
  • Live animal labs provide an ethically and educationally substandard method of teaching surgical procedures by failing to accurately replicate human anatomy and physiology.
  • In the United States and Canada, 99 percent of medical schools—including the University of Maryland and Uniformed Services University—use human-based methods to train students. 

This alert is available to Maryland residents only and your delegate must be a member of the Health and Government Operations Committee.
