ST. LOUIS — The medical director for "Bodies ... The Exhibition" says he is confident the cadavers from China used in the exhibit are not those of political dissidents.
Dr. Roy Glover was in suburban St. Louis today, a day after Atlanta-based Premier Exhibitions Inc. reached agreement with Missouri Attorney General Chris Koster allowing the exhibit to move forward. It will open Oct. 2 at the Galleria shopping mall.
The agreement calls for visible disclaimers that the bodies were obtained in China, but the origins were unknown.
Human rights groups have raised concerns that the company is profiting from bodies that could possibly be those of people killed by the communist regime. Glover says he has utmost confidence the bodies are not those of dissidents.
