We have a number of medical ethics principles which prevent western medicine
from doing much human experimentation along these lines, but there are those
whose religion actually suggests beheading the enemies of their faith.
Could they not graft the head of one of their terminally ill to the
otherwise perfectly healthy body of a doomed infidel?  I wonder if it has
occurred to them to attempt it?
