    Reagan Foundation angry about auction of vial allegedly with traces of Ronald Reagan’

    "A Channel Islands auction house says it’s selling a vial that allegedly contains blood residue from Ronald Reagan — a move denounced Tuesday by the late U.S. president’s foundation. The vial being auctioned online was used by the laboratory that tested Reagan’s blood when he was hospitalized after a 1981 assassination attempt in Washington, the PFCAuctions house said.

    John Heubusch, executive director of the Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation in California, condemned the auction and vowed to try to halt it. Bidding for the vial had passed the 7,000-pound ($11,000) mark Tuesday, the house said, and the auction ends Thursday. “If indeed this story is true, it’s a craven act and we will use every legal means to stop its sale or purchase,” Heubusch said in a statement. “We’ve spoken to GW (George Washington) Hospital and are assured an investigation as to how something like this could possibly happen is underway.

    “Any individual, including a president of the United States, should feel confident that once they enter into the care of a medical system their privacy and rights are held inviolable,” he said. The auction house on the Channels Islands between England and France said on its website that the blood vial did not come from the Washington hospital that treated Reagan but from the Bio Science Laboratory in Columbia, Maryland."

    It appears to be true that one gives his life blood when serving as a US President.

    If true, I would think the Hospital, Lab, and the person trying to sell the blood could be held accountable and sued. The person for aquiring the sample without permission, the lab/hospital for mishandling the security of the blood to be used for testing. Then the improper disposal for the sample after testing is done.

    Although the auction has now been canceled, it is alarming that it had been sold in a auction previously. The whole idea that while serving in office the blood was acquired as a result of the assassination attempt. Just kind of creepy and very disrespectful.

    Now days I do not think they dispose of DNA samples.
    The government has your baby's DNA - CNN.com
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius
