What’s wrong with having a Vincentian national’s corpse?

Editor: I read last week, in all three newspapers, articles in praise of a gentleman who donated his cadaver to a local medical school. I offered to do the same thing with my own body, when the time comes, two months ago and was refused by all three medical schools on this island, being told that it was corporate policy that all cadavers must come from abroad.{{more}} I would really like to see some public response from these schools; they either want cadavers or they don’t, or only want to praise foreign donors and exclude local offerings. What’s wrong with a Vincentian national’s corpse?
