Everyone should follow the example that he and President Eisenhower are setting.
Premier Exhibitions, the company that is putting up the Bodies Revealed show at the Boise Discover Center had this disclaimer on their site for a similar show in NYC: "This exhibit displays human remains of Chinese citizens or residents which were originally received by the Chinese Bureau of Police. The Chinese Bureau of Police may receive bodies from Chinese prisons. Premier cannot independently
verify that the human remains you are viewing are not those of persons who were incarcerated in Chinese prisons." Now Premier and the Discover Center state that disclaimer isn't necessary for the Boise Show because they are using a different supplier who swears the bodies were "donated" by their families for medical studies. And we all know how honest suppliers in Communist China are, right?
They are two different exhibits so it's "not true" because they have a new Chinese supplier. Yes, and Chinese suppliers are very renowned for their honesty. (Ahem... powdered baby milk, pet food... all cases where the suppliers swore their products weren't tainted until they got caught.) Okay, so someone who's making a huge profit from this show swears that "this time" the supplier obtained the bodies ethically and you buy that at face value. By the way, I have a bridge between Brooklyn and Manhattan that I'm selling for $500 and it's yours. Interested? Look- the whole thing smacks of unethical body mongering at any cost. Think that "synthetic" fur on your Made in Chinese coat is synthetic? Meow... think again. I wouldn't trust these people for as far as I could throw a Chinese corpse. Don't be naive.
Note the sentences in the middle of this article: Evidence published in the magazine Der Spiegel revealed that at least seven of the 647 corpses stored in an underground bunker at the professor's vast "body processing centre" in the city of Dalian, in northern China, had head injuries. Two had bullet holes in their skulls.
And how many Chinese prisoners died to put on this show? (If you don't believe me, look up the provenance.) Of course, I'm sure the bodies were "donated" to science...
