The Institute for Plastination Responds to the Bishop of Manchester's Media Blitz, Assertions, and Allegations About BODY WORLDS Anatomical Exhibition Coming to Manchester
Date:2/5/2008

MANCHESTER, England, Feb. 6 /PRNewswire/ -- The Bishop of Manchester has made a series of serious allegations against Dr. Gunther von Hagens, former University of Heidelberg researcher, inventor of the science of Plastination, and creator of BODY WORLDS. In a press release dated the 04 February and at a Press Conference at Manchester Cathedral on the 05 February, the Bishop has castigated the forthcoming BODY WORLDS 4 exhibition, to be hosted by the Museum of Science and Industry, Manchester, from the 22 February to 29 June, 2008.

Because the Institute for Plastination recognizes and respects the rights of every individual to hold their own opinion about BODY WORLDS, it chooses to address at this time only those portions of his statement that are factually incorrect.

The specimens in BODY WORLDS exhibitions stem from a unique Body Donation Programme established in Heidelberg, Germany in 1982, and now managed by the Institute for Plastination (IfP), established in 1993. The IfP's body donation programme and protocols have been vetted by bio-ethicists, museum lawyers, and ad hoc ethics committees assembled by numerous venerable museums in the United States. All death certificates and donor consent forms of plastinates on display have been matched and verified. In October 2007, the Journal of Medical Humanities interviewed bio-ethicist Dr. Hans-Martin Sass of the Kennedy Institute of Ethics at Georgetown University, Washington D.C, who had travelled to Heidelberg in 2004 to examine the IfP's body donor files on behalf of American museums. Dr. Sass confirmed his earlier findings about donor consent and stated to the premier journal for medical researchers that he was satisfied with the Institute for Plastination's body donation programme.

The Institute for Plastination operates with complete transparency and openly provides comprehensive information about our body donation process and programme to all participating museums. With the exception
