Um, I want to go for Medical Experiments. Or do I?

After recent news articles have sprung up over the selling of body parts, shipping containers filled with body parts headed for 'medical experiments' etc?

Well, here's me. My Dad worked for the University of Washington in Cardiac Research and I thought - well - as flipping messed up as my bod is? Yeah baby, send me on off to the U of Dub when I'm done with this personal piece of meat I'm trapped in.

Nowwww? Not so sure.

They can sell my parts? But I have to give them up for free and no monies go to my family?

And do I really want to be shipped off to China in a shipping crate with a bunch a other bods?

Now I'm not even so sure I want to be on the organ donor list? Sounds like they'll just take my parts anyway dead or alive.

It's all beginning to sound like a Monty Python skit.

I'll pay for my cremation, I wouldn't donate my body to science, and there aren't enough good parts left after years of construction work to start donating anymore.

I have been experimenting on myself for nine years now, the doctors experimenting just ruined some of my organs. I will go to a doctor if I need one, but I actually enjoy finding the cause of problems that arise. I doubt if I will ever get cancer, it seems that the diet that keeps my epilepsy under control actually keeps cancer from growing. So they can't even use my cancer to show in classrooms. I dropped out of college the day of my first autopsy on a cadiver, I hated the smell and was disgusted with what I had heard going on in my first Doctors class I took, I quit both classes after the first day. No way do I want to be pickled.

I can get flamed for about three and a half grand, I will pay the price. Straight to the furnace for me.

I wish they would let people incinerate bodies of their own relatives, I would build a big furnace to do it in...for cheaper than a grand. It would take about a single of wood to burn a body and maybe a keg of good beer for the people who do it.

My mom expressed her wishes to be an organ donor. When she died, my two sisters and I had to answer some questions about her drug and alcohol use (she was 65 when she died). While we were confident there was none to speak of...we couldn't say with firsthand knowledge kind of certainty.

So they rejected her generous donation entirely.

Made me so sad.

I had no idea they would be so discriminating.

I really have zero care for what is done with my body after I die.
Use it for a dart board.
Make an ashtray out of my skull.
I don't reckon I'll be around much to care.

This kind of comes down to the same dilemma as giving money to the beggar on the street corner. Will the beggar buy food or drugs? We hope that he buys food but we never really know for sure. So, here's where faith comes in. If not faith, then consider the two scenarios: 1.) The organ saves someone's life 2.) The organ is used for some sinister experiment. Well, of the two, is it worth the chance?

I'm on board with this, but if some part I don't need has even the remotest chance at helping someone else out and all they want is a paper signed that says "organ donor", that's worth taking a pen to I think.

The idea that there are many millions of $$ being made from "free" body parts is disgusting.

Of course we will be told that this is a major service that these honorable companies are undertaking. But of course they are so honorable that they don't pay anything for the main product that is human flesh.

Yes this industry is ripe for some regulations to ensure that if these body parts are going to for profit industries that the estate of the person gets some sort of compensation. Because I think most people think their body/organs go to medical schools-training not to the military or pharma testing.

But of course it is about the $$ and the idea of any regulations on the handling for human remains will be met with socialist and govt. loving name calling by the people making huge $$ of this hidden trade.

I spent the better part of a year in a gross anatomy lab with 40+ cadavers. I would NEVeR want to be one myself. It was far too sad.

Now, I have known a couple of people who were on the transplant list, and seeing their behavior makes me never want to donate my parts either. I’d have to come back and haunt someone’s arse if my liver ended up in some 60 yr old alcoholic . I seriously don’t think alcoholics and drug-induced damage should qualify for transplants. Keep them for the kids IMO. I know one guy in his late 50’s who got a fresh new liver and who shows up at the local pub still drinking his face off. That is an affront to everyone waiting and the generous person who died

If the Monty Python clip doesn't put you off, try this one;
