    I don't see what the fuss is about. The brains were the property of the State, and since the State controls healthcare they have the right to take what they want.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Where does the article say the brains were the property of the state? Where does it say "the state" removed the brains? Apparently this wasn't against the law at the time. Hard to believe.

    At the time, what they did with the brains appears to have been legal (based on the article, not my knowledge of English law). If that is the case, while I understand the upset felt by the parents, I don't think they have any recourse here.

    I'd probably be temporarily ticked if I was told that medical professionals legally, but silently, removed my child's tissues after death....but I think I'd get over it rather quickly, especially if my child's tissues had been taken to be used to research or study the ailment/affliction that caused their death (thereby perhaps saving future children from the same fate). Not saying that was the motivation here, but it would certainly make sense....especially in the case of the poor epileptic child.

    not until i know more about it. the article was very skimpy on details, but your attempt to link this to national healthcare was ridiculous.

    I don't. Kid's dead. They were given proper funeral rites, so the disposition of the corpse is no longer an issue.

    Better than letting it go to waste.

    There was no consent.

    What right do you have to take without consent?
