The families of people who donated their bodies to the medical school at the University of California, Los Angeles seek an injunction to close the school's Willed Body Program. Two people, including the director of UCLA's cadaver department, have been arrested amid allegations that the program illegally sold donated body parts. NPR's Carrie Kahn reports.
