A mother says she is 'stunned' after finding out her baby son's organs have been kept in a Birmingham mortuary for 15 years.
The mother, who wishes to remain anonymous, was informed by the Head of Environmental Health and a police liaison officer that her son's organs have been kept for 15 years after he died of cot death.
I want to know why my son's organs were kept without my consent, which organs have been kept and whether any tests have been carried out on his organs over the last 15 years.
This was my son, a real human being, and not an object to be used for tests without my knowledge for years to come. I'm determined to get to the bottom of what went wrong and how many others are affected. It is the least we deserve and I owe it to my baby boy.
