Did they take it out of eg David Cameron?
They have already done pig heart valves, havenโ€™t they. Wretched pigs :persevere: just because we can do things doesnโ€™t mean we should.

I think that was the other way around wasnโ€™t it? Didnโ€™t they take David Cameron out of a pig?

I think Lord โ€˜Porkyโ€™ Frost is a more probable donor

This kidney was not actually transplanted โ€˜intoโ€™ a human. It was connected to a brain dead person by an artery and vein and, as you can see from the โ€˜photoโ€™, this was done externally.
Someone must have given consent for their body to be used for medical experiment, but I am almost sure that they couldnโ€™t have imagined the break through they have helped to achieve.

Pigs are often used in clinical trials due to similarities with the human tissue.
