BABY PARTS FOR PROFIT
These people are worthy only of death
God will soon catch up with the United states. I believe that for these
sins, and for making sodomy cute, America will utterly be wiped from memory during
the Kingdom Age of Messiah. America will be a goat nation.
Dead Baby Parts Business Booming
By PAUL LIKOUDIS
Here is a sign of the times of American life in the Clinton regime:
"Human embryonic and fetal tissues are available from the Central Laboratory
for Human Embryology at the University of Washington. The laboratory, which is
supported by the National Institutes of Health, can supply tissue from normal
or abnormal embryos and fetuses of desired gestational ages between 40 days and
term. Specimens are obtained within minutes of passage and tissues are aseptically
identified, staged, and immediately processed according to the requirements of
individual investigators. Presently, processing methods include immediate fixation,
snap fixation, snap freezing in liquid nitrogen and placement in balanced salt
solutions or media designated and/or supplied by investigators. Specimens are
shipped by overnight express, arriving the day following procurement. . . .

In cold, clinical
research terms, here is the end product of the "fetal tissue issue" - an economically
important byproduct of the sexual revolution.
(For those who want
to see the document themselves, it's only a click away on the Internet. Just call
up the ask.com search engine, type in "Where can I purchase fetal tissue?," and
within seconds, "NIH Guide" will appear as one of the answers.)
courtesy of the National Institutes of Health, in taxpayer-funded black and white,
is the reality of America's culture of death: commercial cannibalism of the young
of the human species, a business about to break into the mainstream as a coalition
of major medical and health organizations, businesses, and associations press
for federal funding of lethal embryo research.
Since the widespread
legalization of abortion, abortionists, protected and promoted by media publicists,
have dramatized the plight of the poor pregnant girl whose life can only be set
right by free and easy access to tax-funded abortions.
industry, however, has always been about money, and now Houston-based Life Dynamics
has shown it's a double-profiteering, body-snatching supplier for the rapidly
growing biologics and pharmacological industries which require a continuing supply
of fresh human bodies, brains, organs, flesh and bones for research, product manufacturing,
treatments, and therapies.
Following the release, last May, of a powerful
LifeTalk video featuring "Kelly," a fetal tissue procurer for the Maryland-based
Anatomic Gifts Foundation, Life Dynamics has released documentation obtained from
fetal tissue wholesalers, that is, companies which place their employees in abortion
facilities to harvest tissue, limbs, organs, etc. The tissue is then shipped to
universities, pharmaceutical and biologics firms, and government research centers.
Included in the documents are price
lists and shipping and procurement instructions.
Opening Lines, a
division of Consultative and Diagnostic Pathology, Inc., of West Frankfurt, Ill.,
will pay $999 for brains eight weeks old or less ("30% discount if significantly
fragmented"), $400 for an intact embryonic cadaver eight weeks old or less; $600
for an intact embryonic cadaver above eight weeks; $550 for gonads; $350 for bone
marrow, and various prices for everything but the scream: livers, spleens, pancreas,
thymus, mesentery, kidney, pituitary gland, ears, eyes, skin, lung and heart block,
spinal column, spinal cord, cord blood, limbs.
Anatomic Gift Foundation
will pay $220 for a first-trimester aspiration abortion ("fresh") and $260 if
it is "frozen."
Opening Lines provides two kinds of promotional literature,
brochures for abortion clinics and brochures for researchers and industry, which
Life Dynamics includes in its booklet of documentation.
page of the brochure for abortion facilities proclaims: "Find out how you can
turn your patients' decision into something wonderful." Inside is this text: "We
know your patient's decision to have an abortion was carefully considered and
we also know it was a very difficult one to make.
"Now that the choice
has been made, we ask that you propose to your patient a simple program that could
help thousands of people. . . .
"Consultative and Diagnostic Pathology,
Inc., will be asking to obtain tissue specimens from your patient's medical procedure.
. . .
"This is an opportunity to make a difference . . . and it can
be beneficial to your clinic. . . .
"1) Consultative and Diagnostic
Pathology will lease space from your facility to perform the harvesting and distribution
of tissue. The revenue generated from the lease can be used to offset your clinic's
"2) Consultative and Diagnostic Pathology can train your
staff to harvest and process fetal tissue. Based on your volume we will reimburse
part or all of your employee's salary, thereby reducing your overhead."
The brochure for industry declares: "Fresh Fetal Tissue harvested and shipped
to your specifications . . . where and when you need it."
boasts its tissue "is the highest quality, most affordable, and freshest tissue
prepared to your specifications and delivered in the quantities you need when
you need it."
A Ghoulish Request
in the Life Dynamics booklet are dozens of copies of completed "tissue requested"
documents, along with protocols for harvesting, preserving, and shipping.
One such document is a request for "Limbs, Liver, Thymus."
"Preservation: Fresh shipped on wet ice. IMDM/10%, lx l-Glutamine, Pen/Strep.
Will supply if necessary. Limbs intact. To be removed under sterile conditions.
. . .
"Shipping: Fresh, wet ice. Priority overnight or same day.
"Tissue Use/Significance: Human fetal tissue will be used for the generation
of SCID-humice. Briefly, a SCID mouse is engrafted with either a human bone marrow
fragment, thymus/liver graft, or a lymph node. These mice will then be used to
study hemoglobinopatheis in vivo. . . . Approval for the production of SCID humice
and transplantation of cells into them has already been obtained from the IUCUC
of Genetech, Inc. (Study #97-156)."
Other documents stipulate that
organs must be retrieved within ten minutes, indicating that the organ must be
procured from a living, aborted baby.
Other documents stipulate "no
dig," which instructs the abortionist that no digoxin (a feticidal chemical) can
be used, for it would harm the desired organs.
Other norms stipulate
"no anomalies" or "no congenital abnormalities" - evidence perfectly healthy babies
are being aborted for organ harvesting.
Life Dynamics also discloses
that these fetal organ harvesting businesses set up promotional booths at conferences
held by the National Abortion Federation.
Much of the fetal tissue
is used for HIV/AIDS research.
Technically, this gruesome business
is illegal. It is against federal law to sell human tissue or body parts, but
as Life Dynamics points out: "The fetal material [the companies] harvest is `donated'
to them by the clinics. However, they do pay a `site fee' to the clinics for the
right to access the tissue.
"The tissue is then `donated' to the researchers
who in turn pay the wholesalers for the cost of retrieval. Profit is realized
by the wholesalers' ability to set their own retrieval fees."
Fetal tissue research,
harvesting organs from living, aborted babies, building "humice" for research
and the rest of the brave new world of biomedical research is not new; the work
goes back to the 1920s, according to the American Life League's Judie Brown in
"Recycling Babies: The Practice of Fetal Tissue Research" (1996).
In the American Life League's Pro-Life Activist's Encyclopedia entry on "Fetal
Experimentation: Frankenstein Revisited," author Brian Clowes traces the gruesome
history of fetal experimentation and organ harvesting - the "road to Auschwitz"
- back to European and U.S. universities in the 1960s. The practice rapidly accelerated
with the legalization of abortion.
On May 20th, a coalition called
Patients' CURe (Coalition for Urgent Research) started lobbying in Washington,
D.C., for federal taxpayer funding of stem cell research that requires the killing
of human embryos, accompanied by an enormous media blitz ballyhooing the alleged
benefits of fetal tissue research for a host of medical problems.
Members of the coalition include the Alliance for Aging Research, the American
Cancer Society, the Glaucoma Research Council, Juvenile Diabetes Foundation International,
Parkinson's Action Network, Resolve: The National Infertility Association, and
the Spina Bifida Association, Inc.
As Richard Doerflinger of the U.S.
Bishops' Pro-Life Activities office observed, the demand for federal funding for
destructive embryo research - currently against the law - represents a dramatic
turn in the American abortion culture: Government now can only fund those abortions
which "save the life of the mother," but under proposed legislation, will fund
abortions that "produce lifesaving benefits for others."
that, with the aging of America and the growing callousness of baby-boomers, there
will be an increased demand for medical treatments using organs and tissue harvested
from aborted babies.
"It may be expected," he wrote in ALL's Encyclopedia,
"that as many as five million people will make use of fetal tissue on a regular
basis. This means that the total amount of fetal tissue required to satisfy the
demands of these 'neo-vampires' will be measured in the tons every year.
"Since there are only about 120,000 second and third trimester abortions in
the United States, this means that demand for fetal tissue will crushingly and
inevitably overwhelm the available supply."
Clowes predicted "inflated
prices . . ., a thriving black market; the growing and selling of preborn babies
for sale; the import of fetal tissue from poor and developing countries; and entrepreneurs
encouraging women to abort as late as possible for a monetary reward."
Clowes wrote the above in 1995.
In 1999, Kelly, the pseudonymous
organ harvester who unloaded her documents at Life Dynamics, confirmed that women
are "coerced" into having abortions. Women, she says, would change their minds
after entering the abortion mills, but they were sedated by staff into a "Nyquil
Kelly also testified on the Life Dynamics video that women are
encouraged to have late-term abortions to meet the demands of an industry that
requires intact specimens and tissues.
Mark Crutcher, president of
Life Dynamics, says he's convinced that the reason the abortion industry fights
so hard to keep "partial-birth abortion" legal is that it wants to sell the fetal
"Why do pro-aborts fight so hard to keep it?," he asks in
an interview published last month in The Alberta Report. "All it says is you can't
kill them by this method. . . .
"This is about maximizing profits.
First, you sell the woman an abortion. Then you turn around and sell the dead
baby you take out of her. But you have to take it out whole or you don't have
anything to sell."
