    Should head transplants be legal?

    New technology allows heads to be transplanted. Is it prudish and backward to try to stop this?

    Is that even possible?  To have someone else's head?  That's insane.

      Most people find it stomach churning and slightly insane.

    This would actually be a full body transplant rather than a head transplant.

    If it were possible and could save a life, then why shouldn't it be legal? I just shudder at the thought of my live head being detached from a body.

      There seems to be an indefinable revulsion about the procedure. Its Frankensteinian.

    Sure.  As Jayne pointed out, it would actually be a "full body transplant" as opposed to the other way around, and it's definitely going to be possible within our lifetimes.  I'm much more interested in replacing my body parts, one by one, with parts that work way, way better (like a heart that never, ever runs out of energy because it's mechanical and designed way better than a human heart, for instance).

      There's something disorientingly weird about an entire head transplant. It literally makes me feel nauseous.
