Yes Wocca, that maternal instinct thing is rearing it's ugly head again. Guess I just can't help it...
Don't worry about the maternal instinct thing in this case, Isadora. You've put forward a very well-balanced case.
That's me - well balanced... Seriously, thank you - I appreicate your comment.
oh no isadora-that's your views and opinions-i respect that, we can't all be and think the same!
Thanks also for your comment. The world would be a very uninteresting place if we all agreed.
I do have a suggestion for those of you who have already made the decision to donate you body to science. Your body can have a duel purpose if you are willing to also be an organ donor. Not only can you help to save a life (or several), the rest of your body will aid in advancing science that much more.
I don't know about other countries, but in the US, the number of recipients outweigh the available organs by a landslide. Maybe by the time you kick, (at a very old age), the organs will not be useful for transplant... But, if they are - (personally) it is one of the greatest gifts you can give to someone else - the gift of life.
