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.
The hands of compassionate women have boiled their own children; they became their food during the destruction of the daughter of my people.
Bit by bit and drop by drop.
My God, this is not going to end well, it cant.
I think God already pointed that out once.
Oh, there is no limit to evil, no depth that cannot be surpassed.
A woman in San Antonio went zombie-crazy on her own kid, decapitating him and eating his face, toes, and brains.
They don't want to study them. They want to eat them. The Hunt for Immortality continues.
On the other hand, note the ad on forced sterilization, not much different. Flags are in order of enlightened nations approving the procedure. We were the first, thanked by the Reich, and thanks to Margaret Sanger. Sorry if this is off topic, but there is little difference.
We do not stand alone: Nazi poster from 1936 with flags of other countries with compulsory sterilization legislation.
There is true evil in this world.
Tell you what, this is not something I want on my conscience when I stand before my maker.
I despise Obama. I fear he will be re-elected and totally destroy this country.
That is what one would think but it isn't true. One thing is sacred too those wishing little Innocent ones harm. His name we know as Lucifer or Satan. The occult worship of this being considers parts or portions of the innocents as the most powerful tools they can use against those in this earthly world in their spiritual warfare.
I don't mean to gross anyone out but the fact they can melt the body fat of either an aborted or murdered soon after their birth child and melt it for their ceremonial candles shows the wickedness of their hearts. There is a book out called Day of Deception by Rev John Hagee. It goes into some of the specifics of that very thing.
Disgusting beyond what can be described.
This would appear to be creating yet another financial incentive and an industry dependent on the killing of babies.
There do come times when desperate people do desperate things.
The Donner party disaster comes to mind.
Went to Donner Pass, bought the book, kids read it while travelling in our vacation trip.
Thank you for the survival thought.
The world cheered when the Nazis went down, but here we go again.
Unacceptable. Next time you decide to post pictures like these at least include a warning.
Not off topic at all. The Nazis have much, much more in common with today’s left wingers than they do with the right. Dehumanization of your enemies and other “undesirables” is a big part of their modus operandi and the only way that (seemingly) sane people can rationalize that type of behavior to a crowd to follow them.
Yes, abortion is unacceptable! Isn’t it sad that the pro-choice people don’t want to see the truth?
It’s fairly hard to disagree with your premise. I can’t.
You are so right!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
God has been more than tolerant with our beloved country.
He will have the LAST WORD!
I’m sure, at some point, something will ring your bell.
just when i thought they couldnt be more pro death, the ghouls up the ante...
