I don’t think i would let my body be donated. I wouldn’t really care what happens to my body, let my family decide. -Nathan, IN
Of course i would donate my body. It would be selfish and inhumane not to. -Alix Sophia, Minneapolis, MN
I’ve already arranged to have myself sent to the body farm in TN when my time comes. -Cat, Minneapolis, MN
Yes – I am pro-recycling so yes. -Casey Nordendale, St. Paul, MN
