Opening in Tokyo

Postby Meno_ » Wed Dec 06, 2017 3:43 am

The first cafe serving human flesh has opened. In Tokio.The meat is sold by healthy people who have to adhere a pre sale diet consisting of approved ingredients and the sale price is $35,000. Only select gourmands mostly from Indonesia have been noted patronizing the place. An average dinner costs around a thousand dollars, and is served with heavily spiced sauces to mask the smell and the flavor..

But Pandora, what if there was some disease , and this is purely a hypothetical , where possessing a disease,by someone close to You, for whom this sort of immunity would mean the difference between life and death; would You, or, could You change to endorse such a medical intervention?

Then after that a popularization of investing human flesh may become less objectionable?

What if it came to Your knowledge , that the person whose body is planned to be served up was sacrificing the body for the purpose of saving small children on the verge of imminent starvation if the promise of a payout of the familial body is not contracted immediately?

Switch to today's changes attitudes about the prosperous trade in body parts, euthanasia, the relaxing of standards regarding donation for research of the same and there is apparent a relaxing of attitudes regarding the sanctity of life .

As materialism literally eats away that Catholic notion , how are ethical consideration s play into the larger ethical considerations of medicine, whereby apparently it appears to be in conflict with medical ethics ?

Ultimately are such contradiction reconciable ?
