I heard about a similiar story in December but I can't remember where it occurred.
I felt ill then, and still do now. It's a shame as well. Not a lot of people donate their bodies for medical research due to the stigma attached being that your body gets cut up into small pieces and poked around and not used for what it was intended for. And now, it seems that it's true. Though I would like to hear more from the point of view of UCLA and what they knew. The administration firmly believes that the parts were sold for medical research.
It is common practice for body parts to be bought for research. For example, in the research done with therapuetic cloning for instance, human eggs donated were bought by Advanced Cell Technology in 2001 in a failed attempt. They paid several hundred thousand dollars for a few dozen eggs.
