Ronald Reagan’s Blood Up For Auction


An auction in the United Kingdom has some Ronald Reagan supporters’ blood boiling. Supposedly, a vial of the former President’s blood is up for auction.

According to Reuters, the vial came from the seller’s mother, who worked at a blood-work facility. The blood sample was obtained at the George Washington University Hospital after the attempted assassination of Reagan in 1981.

The seller claims to have been given the go-ahead by government officials. But some people are calling the auction inappropriate.

“If indeed this story is true, it’s a craven act and we will use every legal means to stop its sale or purchase,” said John Heubusch, executive director of the Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation. “Any individual, including a President of the United States, should feel confident that once they enter into the care of a medical system their privacy and rights are held inviolable.”

The auction ends Thursday.
