Is this disrespectful?

One of the general thoughts of selling real human remains is that remains should be left to rest, selling them is disrespectful. If this is your opinion then I ask you to please consider this. My personal opinion is that you can only disrespect the living.

All the remains I sell are over 100 years old for the law and respect of the living friends and relatives, I would never sell any remains with a known name as this may upset the living and that is in my opinion disrespectful. If someone is disrespected with no link to a random skull then that is their opinion and in my mind not disrespectful.

What gives us the right to farm animals in even the nicest of conditions with the sole purpose to kill them for our benefit? We don't “need” the meat or the leather or any other byproducts yet its common place to breed and slaughter animals yet it seems forbidden to tinker with the leftovers from a human once mother nature takes back what she needs. I sell dead animals and dead people, I treat them both the same, any animals I sell are a byproduct of human consumption or have died naturally.

In an ideal world, we would treat humans and animals the same, I think it is a lot more ethical and resourceful to experiment cosmetics on life sentences and then even harvest life sentence criminals rather than pay for them to live in prisons. They have useful organs, skin that can be made into leather and flesh that could feed the starving, yes this seems extreme but think about it, who deserves to be slaughtered? innocent animals or a human that does terrible things. If there weren't as many life serving prisoners taking up prison space and being kept alive with our tax money then that space and money could be a new hospital, school or something else that would benefit humanity.

Is it legal to sell bits of dead people?

Basically yes, as long as things are over 100 years old, ethically sourced and with no use for transplant. There are various acts and laws to follow but with these basic steps in mind all is legal.
