This is my daughter's lawsuit!

I am so very proud of her for standing up for what is right, risking her job and perhaps even her career!

She has her priorities straight: integrity trumps job security!

For the record, Donna is neither PETA nor vegetarian. Indeed, she strongly supports animal research.

I am so very proud of my daughter and wanted to be the first to share her making the news for standing up for what's right!

Her lawsuit is also covered in an article in the Dallas Observer and the Courthouse News Service.

For the last few years, Donna Pulkrabek was the manager of UT Southwestern Medical Center’s Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee, a group of scientists and vets and other folks tasked with keeping an eye on how the school treats its animal research subjects, among them dogs, goats, frogs and sheep and mice. It was her job to make sure UTSW complies with Office of Laboratory Animal Welfare guidelines concerning the treatment of animals.

It doesn't make sense to hire someone to keep you legal and then refuse to listen to them.

You shouldn't have to go to court to do the job they asked you to do in the first place. When they fire you for doing what they hired you to do, they demonstrate their lack of integrity for all the world to see.

It takes courage to lay your job on the line when jobs are hard to get.

Did a little subcontracting at UTSW a few years back. Encountered a professor who treated his students like pigs, or worse, in front of me. He was really a nasty piece of work. If they treat animals like the students are treated, the lawsuit has some substance.

Good for her!

I’m tired of the eco-fascists making it a false dichotomy that it’s either crazy Green socialism, or you’re an evil person who likes to destroy nature and hurt animals.

You can be compassionate towards animals and care about the environment, while supporting science and economic development. I applaud your daughter’s character!

Thank God that, in this lying culture, there are still people around willing to stand up for what is right, for what is true.

May God ever bless Donna Jean for blowing the whistle on institutional animal abuse at UT!!!

Your pride in your daughter's principled position on this, especially in light of the career risk involved, is entirely justified. May God ever bless her!

Thank you, Donna Jean!

I would hope that we soon get beyond the need for experimentation on animals..........
