This is so sad.
A Boston parent is offering to sell his or her body parts on Craigslist to pay for their child's student loans which total $200,000.
The desperate post was titled "Do You Need A Live Cadaver? Take My Body" in the "jobs wanted" section of Boston Craigslist last week and read:
"If you eliminate my children's student loans, I will give you my life!"
What could be a sick joke, gets sickly serious as it continues:
"Take my blood, take my plasma. Drill into my brain, my leg, my arm. Tap my heart, my liver, my kidney. I am very very serious."
While this parent's devotion and self-sacrifice for its child's future is commendable, it is mostly unnecessary and disturbing.
We think their child would rather have to pay student loans then have their parent pay the ultimate price of losing their life.
We sincerely hope NOBODY actually takes this offer seriously and that this desperate parent can find another means of securing funds to pay off their child's excessive college debt.
