The Abortion Industry: Baby Flesh Pills, Roasted Human Fetuses and the Harvesting of Fetal Baby Parts

Sound like a horror movie? It's not. Although, it seems as if real life is becoming a horror movie, especially considering our grisly human fetal industry.

A British man of Taiwanese origin,has been arrested by the Thai police for having six roasted human fetuses in his luggage. Reports say he intended to sell the fetuses in Taiwan where some believe they would bring luck and wealth.  He could have made about $40,000

The fetuses were wrapped in gold leaf which led the police to believe that they were meant to be used in a black magic ritual called Guman Thong, which translate to 'golden child'. A traditional Guman Thong is made from the dead baby of a woman who died in childbirth.In the past, monks would cut the baby's body out of the mother', which they had exhumed from the grave, performed a ritual over it and then baked it. The recent arrest, along with the 2,000 fetuses found hidden in a Buddhist temple morgue that appear to have come from illegal abortion clinics.over 2,000 fetuses found in a Buddhist temple in Thailand less than two years ago,  has revealed that the ancient, illegal practices are still ongoing, catering to an international black market of the occult.

However, this is just the tip of a very dark iceberg.  The "abortion industry" is a huge profit making business. On March 8, 2000, ABC's news weekly 20/20 produced evidence of "a thriving industry in which aborted fetuses women donate to help medical research are being marketed for hundreds, even thousands of dollars." Chris Wallace interviewed several people involved in the harvesting of fetal body parts and produced a price list from one firm, Opening Lines, offering fetal spinal cords for $325, fetal reproductive organs for $550, fetal brains for $999 (if less than eight weeks), and the like.  A 1999 brochure from Opening Lines, a Division of Consultative and Diagnostic Pathology, Inc. stated purpose is to maximize the utilization of fresh fetal tissue [they] process.”

Here is a current price list.

Partial-birth abortion, much more risky to mothers, are favored over other late-term methods of abortion because it affords the greatest opportunity to profit from the harvesting of fetal parts.  A hearing before congress revealed that most of the babies are 'harvested' alive, without anesthesia, to secure freshest organs. 

A new product warning label is needed: Fetal Free.

"Unborn babies at 20 weeks development actually feel pain more intensely than adults,” reports Dr. Ranalli, a neurologist at the University of Toronto. He adds, “[This is a] uniquely vulnerable time, since the pain system is fully established, yet the higher level pain-modifying system has barely begun to develop”

Despite this known fact, abortions are still routinely performed without the use of pain-mitigating interventions for the fetus".
While many companies tout humane and cruelty-free practices in industries involving animals (poultry) and in product-testing methodologies, abortion techniques are decidedly painful for the fetus and include one of the following procedures,
  • Partial-birth abortion(D X): The unborn baby is delivered feet first, except for the head, which is punctured at the base of the skull with a sharp object. Thebrain is then suctioned out, killing the child.
  • Dilation and Evacuation (D E): Sharp-edged instruments are used to grasp,twist, and tear the baby’s body into pieces, which are then removed from the womb.
  • Saline abortion: Salt water is injected into the womb through the mother’s abdomen. The unborn baby swallows this fluid, is poisoned and dies in a process that sometimes takes 24 hours. The toxic saline solution causes severe burns over the unborn child’s entire body
In 1999, fifty U.S. company's purchased the stem cells, one company under the name American Society for Anti-Aging, and a company called Senomyx uses embryonic stem cells to test popular foods that we all eat. Pepsi just recently stopped using them , but Nestle, and Lipton are patrons of Senomyx. The latest company to hit the headlines is StemCells Inc, which has just gained federal approval in the US to harvest the brains from abortions, and use them in experiments.

I guess if you believe a fetus is not really a human, just a clump of cells, then you should have no objection to to this grisly industry.  At the same time, I bet you can't help but feel a twinge of disgust.   .

Yeah, you forgot to mention Planned Parenthood's part in all of this. It supports the harvesting of baby parts for research, and actually has at least one clinic that helped supply aborted babies to firms featured in Wallace's 20/20 report you talk about.

On February 16, 2000, a statement released to members of Congress investigating trafficking in fetal body parts, Planned Parenthood of America went to great lengths to explain and justify the association of its Overland Park, Kansas, clinic with two firms supplying fetal parts to researchers. It claimed that it "in effect, inherited" the contract that existed between the clinic and the Anatomic Gift Foundation, a fetal parts collector and supplier, when Planned Parenthood acquired the clinic in April 1997. Planned Parenthood of Kansas and Mid-Missouri (PPKM) terminated that contract in July 1998.

BUT, rather than walk away from a distasteful practice, PPKM then entered into a new contract with Consultative and Diagnostic Pathology. According to Planned Parenthood, in addition to standard pathology services, the company was also "authorized to collect fetal tissue for distribution to medical researchers under a subsidiary program called Opening Lines."

Neither Planned Parenthood nor its abortion clients actually "sell" the dissected fetal parts to the collection firms. This was made illegal by the NIH Revitalization Act passed by Congress in 1993. That act makes it unlawful "to knowingly acquire, receive, or otherwise transfer any human fetal tissue for valuable consideration if the transfer affects interstate commerce."

The act exempts, however, "reasonable payments associated with the transportation, implantation, processing, preservation quality control, or storage of human fetal tissue." Planned Parenthood, and the fetal parts suppliers who contract with it, have seized on that language as a way of collecting money.

Circumventing the law, not by charging researchers for the actual aborted babies' organs, but by charging fees for collecting, processing, or shipping the fetal body parts. Planned Parenthood, in turn, collects money by "renting" office and storage space to the firms collecting and dissecting the babies aborted at the clinic (and presumably saves money related to the disposal of the corpses).

Thus, while no one actually "buys" or "sells" the aborted babies or their organs, everyone is able to collect money- - 1except for the mother who gives up her aborted baby for "research."

Nothing here precludes Planned Parenthood (or any other abortion clinic) from passing along aborted babies to professional, rent-paying, baby dissectors, so long as the clinic gets the mother's informed consent and doesn't offer her some "improper" inducement, such as a cash reimbursement, to give up the baby's body.

What don't you understand about the fact that these aren't babies. They're clumps of cells who cannot survive outside the mother, therefore a part of the mother.

Actually, it's better that they use fetal clumps rather than using animals who can survive independent. They are not parasites

1:35, I try not to make my blog posts too long, so I provide links where people can read it for themselves. But I love it when people add information, so, Thank you!

Jay, have you ever seen an abortion performed? Seen the babies beeing pulled from their moms womb, still breathing and moving? If not, you should definitely witness one and then see how comfortable you are calling it a fetal clump, or clump of cells, treated with no more respect than a tumor.
