Jan G. Bjaalie, head of the Institute of Basic Medical Sciences at the University of Oslo, said he was happy that they had "finally been able to grant a worthy end to her life." "Today, it's almost incomprehensible that a circus used corpses for entertainment purposes. Hers was used in a way we today would consider to be completely reprehensible," he said. "It's important that we now have a clear end to the way she was treated." So we make progress in one area, and regress in others. Earlier generations would have found it completely reprehensible that we destroy human beings in their mother's womb before they ever see the light of day.
