FULL-BODY TRANSPLANTS ARE A CRAZY, WILDLY UNETHICAL IDEA

FOR THE LAST week, an Italian neurosurgeon has been executing a full-blown media offensive, talking up his plan to stitch one personís head to another personís body. If the powers-that-be would just get over their ethical queasiness, Sergio Canavero of the Turin Advanced Neuromodulation Group says he could accomplish the feat by 2017.

Sooo... if I make a clone of myself, with a genetic defect called Anencephaly, how is it unethical to use that to transplant myself into?

If someone becomes brain dead in a accident, why would it be wrong to save someone elses life?

Crazy and wild? Sure. So was flying at one point. But not unethical depending on the circumstances.

Welcome to the future. Lots of changes are coming.

I am too old for it but i think it a neat idea. I could get rid of my lifelong crippled twisted body and get too walk around without any restriction or limp and have two good arm and two good legs instead of one of each. WHY NOT?
