The Haifa District Court ruled on Wednesday that science students who they object to vivisection on ethical grounds may not be forced to dissect or perform experiments on animals. The ruling stipulated that students must be provided with an alternative learning method that does not harm animals. Let Animals Live, one of the main animal rights organizations in Israel, called the decision an "important achievement" for animal rights, Army Radio reported.
