Obama Admin OKs Using Aborted Babies Brains in Lab Tests
by Steven Ertelt | Washington, DC | LifeNews.com | 3/16/12 1:18 PM
The Obama administration is getting grief from a pro-life group for approving an experiment using the remains of the bodies of unborn children victimized in abortion for research continues in U.S. laboratories.
Scott Fischbach, the director of Minnesota Citizens Concerned for Life uncovered the information showing a clinical trial approved by the Food and Drug Administration uses brain tissue from aborted unborn babies to treat macular degeneration. StemCells Inc. will inject fetal brain stem cells into the eyes of up to 16 patients to study the cells effect on vision.
In its press release announcing the clinical trial, StemCells Inc. was careful to refer to the fetal brain material as purified human neural stem cell product or HuCNS-SC cells, rather than fresh human fetal brain tissue, a description which can be found elsewhere on its website.
StemCells Inc. is not using embryonic stem cells. A five-day-old human being at the embryonic stage does not have a brain, but a fetus at 10 or 20 weeks of development with visible fingers, toes and ears has a functioning brain, said Fischbach. Developing human beings in the womb are treated simply as raw material for laboratory experimentation by StemCells Inc. and other companies seeking to monetize aborted unborn children.
In the press announcement, StemCells Inc. calls the use of the brains from babies killed in abortions truly unique.
With the approval of this trial, we have accomplished something truly unique in the stem cell field, which is the extension of clinical testing of our proprietary human neural stem cell platform to all three elements of the central nervous system: the brain, spinal cord and eye, said Martin McGlynn, President and CEO of StemCells, Inc. The preclinical data supporting our IND is particularly compelling and we look forward to getting this trial underway.
Fischbach said the dehumanization of nascent human life, applied to human embryos in order to justify the exploitation of embryonic stem cells, is now being applied to the harvesting of brain tissue from more developed unborn babies with functioning brains.
But he said the problem is not unique to StemCells Inc pointing out that the misleadingly-named Birth Defects Research Laboratory at the University of Washington in Seattle is known within the research community as a top government distributor of fetal tissue.
The lab has been sponsored by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) for over four decades, according to a report in WORLD Magazine. The Puget Sound Business Journal stated that the lab in 2009 filled more than 4,400 requests for fetal tissue and cell lines. WORLD reports that the Seattle facility has retrieved the products of 22,000 pregnancies to date; the lab collects aborted fetuses from abortion centers across the country.
Experimental fetal stem cell treatments have yielded horrific results, he said.
Dr. David Prentice, an internationally recognized expert on stem cells and cloning, cites trials in which fetal stem cells have been used unsuccessfully to treat Parkinsons disease. The New York Times called the outcome of a 2001 study devastating after the patients writhed and jerked uncontrollably. Another large clinical trial published in 2003 showed similar results.
The use of morally illicit material in the biomedical industry violates the do no harm principle that has governed the practice of medicine for millennia, Fischbach said. Adult stem cells offer the ethical and efficacious alternative. Unborn babies deserve dignity, not dissection and destruction.
Locally, he said it is not known whether the University of Minnesota is experimenting with material from aborted fetuses, but it does use stem cells extracted from human embryos, which are killed in the process. Minnesotas Human Conceptus Statute 145.422 prohibits the use of a living human conceptus for any type of research or experimentation.
MCCL calls upon the U of M to pledge not to purchase or use fetal material in its research, Fischbach added. Such gruesome work violates human dignity and has no place in our state-funded institutions.
I'm completely sick at heart. I mean, we knew the tiny babies weren't given funerals or treated with any degree of respect, but this is Nazi science.
Lord stop this madness and hear our prayers.
The evil of this administration knows no bounds. We have a monster in the White House....30-40 Communist Czars, most of whom appear take joy in murdering babies.
We had better pray hard!
This FR thread today, a post of an article by Robert Bork fits this thread. Don’t ever forget it.
Social decay and fiscal decay are one.
There will be no recovery until we face that the left a has infected our culture like a cancer that has spread to the lymph glands.
Yes, pray non-stop and fight this with all our might.
I have reactionary pains in my chest, but not heart attack symptoms, praise God. I'm truly sick at heart. This monster knows no boundaries. He is evil, without a soul, I'm sure.
These poor, sweet innocents didn't ask to be aborted and now to have their tiny dead bodies brutalized for Nazi science! Beyond gruesome and inhumane, yet the monster Obama apologizes for Koran burnings!
Obama's brain belongs in a lab and the sooner the better!
It used to be with Clinton, there was, on average, a monthly atrocity. With Obama, it has become a DAILY atrocity!!
You’re right about that. I think the Marxist sees that he might lose this election and he’s striking out in all wild directions. This one has gone too far, even for most Far Left women (I think) but don’t really know, given that I don’t associate with any feminazis.
I have spent a lot of time reseaching Obama’s history, friends etc, right back to his college days. he is the poster boy for affirmative action. He has hidden all of his college papers, and transcripts(for obvious reasons).
His I.Q. is no better than average, but he gets Highest Honors as a CON MAN.
I have a pretty simple explanation: aborted babies don’t vote.
I feel the same, O.
My whole head, body, guts .. nauseous .. inflamed with
a sickened foreboding throughout .. spent and drained with utter disgust and revulsion.
Monstrosities .. almost too evil and perverse to think about, and here it’s happening right before our eyes. As we always knew: Alinskyites could purposely overwhelming the system, and there’s no better demon than Obama .. NONE better. But this ...
How in God’s name do McConnell, Cantor, Boehner, Ryan .. look in the mirror in the face of this unbridled perversity and tyranny?
Contraception mandates, aborted tissue use .. these
repugnant abominations CANNOT STAND! Dear Lord, Holy Spirit, come .. You and you alone have the remedies ..
Lord, hear our prayers.
Con Man, community organizer, sociopath, average IQ. Right.
How is it, that Cantor endorsed Romney?
How do the aforementioned not damn obama every day?
They should be fighting him for us and for our Republic!
Dear Lord, Holy Spirit, come .. You and you alone have the remedies .. Lord, hear our prayers.
Yes, sweet STAR! Amen!
May God stop Obama’s heart tonite.
I know .. the world’s gone mad .. up is down, wrong is right.
It feels apocalyptic .. pray hard, relentlessly, dear FReepers.
It does... Pray for Israel too.
I’m going to take DrO to Church in the morning.
Prayers and Hugs. Good night.
The Ntl RTL Committee can document that the evil Planned Parenthood "sold" legalized abortion with lies and deceit----PP swore abortion would be done ONLY in the most drastic circumstances.
RTL'ers tried and tried to warn what would happen......that abortion evil would not stop there.
Using babies' brains in labs is just the beginning of these Mengele-type experiments.
PP is in our schools K-12, equipping youngsters like whores--forcing us to pay for promiscuity and birth control, as well.
We have pure evil for a President in our White House.
