Tonight on TS Radio: Marcia Southwick reports on the selling of body parts that takes place behind the scenes. If you are among the poor, the likelyhood that you will be “parted out” is very high. The market for human body parts is largely unregulated, and business is brisk!
Describing themselves as “non-transplant tissue banks”, these body brokers conduct a very lucrative business that can be a whole body---or just parts of it. According to the recent Reuters article,
“Generally, a broker can sell a donated human body for about $3,000 to $5,000, though prices sometimes top $10,000. But a broker will typically divide a cadaver into six parts to meet customer needs. Internal documents from seven brokers show a range of prices for body parts: $3,575 for a torso with legs; $500 for a head; $350 for a foot; $300 for a spine.”
As I have said repeatedly, we have been commodified. Now in addition to buying and selling us through various government programs, they now have a way to profit from us even after death. Please join us for what is sure to be a remarkable show!
