    It's fine with me.

    I intend to be cremated, so it's unlikely to happen.

    Since I would be dead, I'm pretty sure I wouldn't feel one way or the other about it.

    The body is just a vessel. Do what you want with it when I no longer need it.

    Impossible. A person's decision, to leave their body to science is decided before death only.

      Not impossible.No one asked Lucy's permission.There are plenty of cases of doctors or scientists obtaining bodies for research under shady circumstances https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alder_Hey_organs_scandal https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Burke_and_Hare_murders https://www.wired.com/2007/11/ff-bones/

    I don’t know how I would feel because I would be dead

    I wouldn't feel anything.

    It would be out of my control and much too late to prevent it.

    I would be dead...

    Doubt I would have any feelings for that, but happy to advance knowledge

    That'd be rad

    I won't care- I won't know about it. My mother-in-law willed her body to a medical school, to be used as a cadaver for the medical students to practice on. I admire that. But I think I'll be cremated.
