KC Star Calls for Regulation of 'Bodies' Shows

Excerpt from their editorial today:

The recent revelation is one more reason to urge Congress to investigate the traveling exhibits that display plasticized human skeletons and body parts. . .

The Catholic Key informed station officials in March that the form was actually from an unrelated business.

Udris said he consulted with Premier Exhibitions, which produced an affidavit from the supplier insisting that all of the bodies in the Union Station exhibit were obtained with donor consent.

That now looks like a questionable basis for trust. As the “Bodies Revealed” exhibit prepares to close its Kansas City showing on Monday, it’s dismaying that new doubts have arisen about the cadavers.
