Ronald Reagan’s blood going up for auction
A vial supposedly containing the late president’s blood is up for auction on PFCauctions.com, which is based in the United Kingdom.
The vial is pictured on the website with a label of the president’s name. An included letter from the seller says his late mother worked at the lab that tested the blood for the George Washington University Hospital after Reagan was shot.
The most recent bid on the site is a little more than $9,900.
Some are outraged over the auction, calling it unethical.
“If indeed this story is true, it’s a craven act and we will use every legal means to stop its sale or purchase,” John Heubusch, executive director of the Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation, said in a statement.
Dr. Joseph Giordano, who was head of the GW Hospital’s trauma team in 1981, said the auction is outrageous.
