Just watched the movie, "My Sisters Keeper" with my wife. I also found out that Jodi Piccoltis novel, from which this movie was based on, was based on a multitude of stories like this where parents of sick children have another for "spare parts"
Is it ok to grow a child in a dish to percise spcifications in order to harvest organs? Why or whynot?
It's a doner kebab. Well to be more exact, it's the reconstituted meat that will end up making many doner kebabs. You see them in kebab shops*, rotating slowly around their skewer, being kept at a temperature that makes them just hot enough to eat... and provide a home for lots of lovely bacteria.
I ate many of these as a student, after going out for a drink (or several). I would never touch one now - they're a food poisoning outbreak waiting to happen!
*Edit: I see you're from the US... perhaps you don't have kebab shops over there??
I have heard of them, falafel too...spelling* but have never had them. There are street venders in New York and such where these foods are found and I am sure I good go down to the various markets of the world down on Sullivent ave. and find some but I have to admit, the temptation to eat these foods has never struck me.
I grew up eating italian mostly. Clams, pasta, veal, chicken and such. I can't say this meat on a stick thing looks a appetizing as Stuffed Chicken Parmesan!
I think you are asking in a rather biased way if you assume they have a child just to "harvest organs". It isn't like they can take the heart and throw the rest of the baby away. Often what is used is something like cord blood.
I have and it does not relate to "organs". I also thought you wanted to discuss the real word situation. But if you just want people to agree with your outrage based on seeing a fictional weepy movie, well... I'll leave you to it.
