    I'm a registered organ donor, and I wouldn't hesitate in the slightest to offer my body for such study & display, following my death. Why on earth will I need it? Either I'm going to end up part of an overcrowded cemetery and waster space needed by the living, or be cremated. I'd much rather offer others the chance to study and learn. It's a benefit to science.

    How do you think so many scientific and medical advancements have been made throughout the centuries?

  • Well, this should make my opinion clear:

    I'd LOVE to see the exhibit! I think that it is fascinating, and a wonderful educational experience. I don't see how anyone could see it as 'mutilation'. Then again, I was also depressed when I miss 'Bodies... The Exhibition". :P And I'd give my left hand to go to the Mütter Museum.
