  • Life in the Balance
     

    Dear Friend, 

    With more students enrolling in medical school, schools are facing a shortage of available cadavers for anatomical education. To help combat this shortage, many states allow medical schools to use unclaimed cadavers for anatomical dissection. This is considered a two-pronged solution, inasmuch as it alleviates the shortage of available cadavers and eliminates the public expense of burying such bodies. It also raises several ethical concerns. 

    Is it moral to dissect a corpse without the consent of the deceased or his family, or is this a form of grave robbing? What obligation does society have toward the abandoned dead? Would Jewish law allow one to voluntarily donate his or her body to science? When does Jewish law allow postmortem procedures? In the fifth lesson of Life in the Balance, entitled "Final Honors: Autopsy and Anatomical Dissection," we will examine how Jewish law balances the dignity of the dead with the needs of society. 

    I look forward to greeting you tomorrow night, January 15th a Troy Gould
