Submission + - Seattle Bans "Bodies" Exibits (nwsource.com)

Saeed al-Sahaf writes: There will be no more commercial cadaver displays in Seattle — unless the deceased or their families have consented. In a unanimous vote, Seattle City Council members voted in favor of legislation which will affect exhibits such as "Bodies" that display preserved human cadavers. Premier Exhibitions, which sponsors the "Bodies" exhibit, says it can't verify where the bodies are from or that the deceased on exhibit consented to such display. On its website, Premier said it obtained its more than 200 bodies from a plastination facility in China, which received them from Chinese medical universities. The universities received them from the Chinese Bureau of Police.
