Re: Exotic Leathers - Us?

The thing that gets me is the waste of a perfectly good natural resource --
by burial or cremation -- because of emotional attachment. I presume that's
why many people refuse to allow their bodies (or those of deceased kinfolk)
to be used for medical research, or organ transplants. \

Another reason is religious.  Certain Christian denominations and other
religions believe that the actual body will be used in the afterlife.  If
the body is cut up or parts are removed, you'd spend eternity in poor
condition or maybe not make it all.
