What do you do you think about doctor Gunther von hagens body worlds exhibit?

About that particular exhibit... Those people specifically donated their bodies for that purpose. So it's a odd collaboration- personally I wouldn't go near it, but it's interesting that humans have that much freedom. I mean, it's not my corpse up there...

BUUUUT. The MAJOR downside is that with the success of Body Worlds, came knock off exhibits.
With people using bodies that are NOT CONSENSUALLY apart of the exhibit! Chinese prisoners have been KILLED to be displayed. There's a whole 20/20 special on it.
Here's an article as well:

So... while the original was fine, it's causing a hideous echo throughout other cultures.
