These are stored in the recently redeveloped Hunterian Museum at the Royal College of Surgeons of England in London. It is hardly surprising that, by the beginning of the nineteenth century, grave robbing was frowned upon by many within society, who expressed disquiet about the moral and social acceptability of both this practice and the subsequent mutilation of the dead. In response, the legitimacy of dissection was defended by the medical establishment, on the basis of its ultimate medical benefits – the training of doctors and advances in human anatomical knowledge.
Bodies are provided by hospitals, mostly from brain dead donors who have previously given consent for their bodies to be used for medical research. In other cases, bodies donated to anatomy departments for dissection have been dissected, but with body parts being sold to other organisations for therapeutic and research purposes. The uses to which these body parts are put are, ostensibly, good ones, namely research and therapy. But the transactions are purely commercial and the bodies are being treated as property.
In the first, ethical decisions are required to deal with the aftermath of the Nazi regime. In the late 1980s it came to light that tissue samples and skeletons from the cadavers of victims of Nazi-era executions were being used for teaching purposes at German medical schools. The Israeli religion minister demanded that all body parts from Nazi victims be returned to Israel for proper burial. This, in turn, led to a demand within Germany that the universities stop using any such remains. It had been known for many years that, during the Nazi era, cadavers for medical education were procured by universities from nearby execution sites, but the origins of the slides and skeletons being used in anatomy classes had never been questioned.
