WOULD you donate your body to medical science? You'd probably be more inclined to if you thought it was for a worthwhile cause rather than training doctors how to create surgical celebrity look-alikes.

Donate to science, but they sure charge you out the --- every time you go to the doctor don't they:)

Perhaps more people would donate organs or their whole bodies if they could be guaranteed in
writing that their families wouldn't be charged the cost of organ removal or body preparation.
Wouldn't want to put my surviving relatives in debt, but could see how the medical field could
benifit from the knowledge that could be gained from a cadaver. Not for everybody.

I don't see the plastic surgery angle needed for this. Anatomy is covered in depth at Medical School on "donated to science" cadavers, then also when working in theatre at the hospitals.

Estella, there is no fee here in Australia for donating your body. I once enquired about it and you had to make arrangements ahead of time as to where they cold collect your body from! Mmmmmm, now, where shall I die?
