I have to do a pig dissection for my Biology class, and even though we will be using latex gloves, I am not sure if we are allowed to touch or handle the pig fetus. Please advise me on this matter. I really appreciate your guidance. Thank you.

the Scientific Research Committee -

If the dissection is a requirement of your biology class or of scientific research in general, you may do it.

Please note that the pig is impure. If any substance from the pig touches your skin or clothing, it will have to be thoroughly washed off before you may pray.

And Allah knows best.
