Re: “Bodies ... The Exhibition

I agree with Douglas Vuncannon that one of the most disturbing aspects is that this 'industry' is that it is likely encouraging the violation of the rights of living humans. I can accept that there are those who, like yourself, don't believe that the human body should be sanctified. Fine for you. However I do not believe that excuses the use of bodies who's owners, in life, would not have given their permission for such display. Its not theirs, they shouldn't use it without permission. This is especially true where there are strong cultural taboos against it, as in China. And although I appreciate the overall support of Mr. Ginsberg's post to mine, I disagree that there is any good news from Premier Productions. They can say this is legal ONLY because there are no regulations. Arnie Geller and Roy Glover have much too much money to be made here to willingly admit to any wrongdoing. These guys are opportunistic sleazebags. It may be legal according to Chinese law, but that doesn't assure me that these factories, conveniently located next to the prisons, are NOT using executed prisoners. Harry Wu, who saw the removal of executed prisoners' bodies by medical students, from the prison cemetery with his own eyes, believes there is strong reason to be suspicious. I do too. If there were a 2% chance there were executed prisoners hanging beautifully on wires with artistic lighting would that be a low enough percentage for any of you? Not me. Yes, yes, yea verily! Close these exhibits! I look forward to checking out the link you posted Aaron, thanks.
