1. He experimented on them when he was in doctor school.

He got strays from a shelter and experimented on them.

3. Thanks for the link.
I think Frist should atone for his actions by donating to animal shelters.

5. I think the only way he can atone
is to spend the rest of his rotten life cleaning out their cages.

Appalling man, total lack of ethics.

4. Come on guys
Give the guy a break. It's not like it's a symptom of say, the urge to committ, over and over, the violent killing of innocent humans:

or that most serial killers hail from the medical profession:

What are you saying about Dr. Frist?

6. To add to that...
Tonight, Mike Malloy was commenting on Frist's recent trip to the see the tsunami area. As they were about to leave, Frist was having his picture taken and he asked that they get some of the devestation in the background of his photograph. Using the tsunami damage as a photo op. He's such a piece of crap.

8. Killing Animals senselessly is
a symptom that often goes along with killing humans (who are technically animals, too).
I repudiate the killing of both cats and humans equally. What is there to gain from either?

9. cat experimentation
whether right or wrong dissecting cats is part of every biology curriculum, even at my very liberal school, temple university

10. Do the people that acquire these cats
lie to animal shelters and then sneak them home, and hide the fact that they did it?

12. Yes it is, but to lie to humane organizations
isn't very "Christian," is it?

It's the hypocracy, not the deed. I realize that med students must carve on something to learn.

14. There's a very big difference between that and what Frist was doing.

15. vivisection is not (normally) part of biology curriculum
upi cleaned it up a bit by calling it just 'experiments', but you hear around in other articles that he did vivisection (which means he did dissection on a live animal, most likely restrained with minimal to no sedation -- vivisection is nothing like "surgery" with anasthesia, it is ghastly and painful and most modern biological societies roundly condemn the use of vivisection). and he seems to have done this for... extra-curricular learning (aka. fun). he's a sick fucker that one.

the best way i'd like him to atone would be a nice televised weekly show of a vivisection on frist. i think an hour of watching unanesthetized minor surgery on him each week would be a nice start in the atonement process. "and this, class, is frist's spleen. it's job is destroying dead and dying red blood cells... and join us next week. we are going to study frist's larynx. it'll be a great show, his screaming won't interrupt us as much this time because he won't be able to scream! :D an exciting show, be there with us."
