No longer science fiction: Aborted human fetuses harvested to grow kidney organs in rats for transplantation into human patients


If you think doctors’ agendas are good, think again.  Check out this report from Natural News.

Human fetal kidneys harvested from aborted babies are being surgically implanted into adult rats to grow new kidneys to be transplanted into awaiting human adults.

This procedure, which is under rapid development, is being framed as a medical breakthrough by scientists who appear to be completely blind to the moral and ethical issues at stake in such a scheme.

“[This] is definitely the first time an actual whole human organ has been grown in an animal, and has sustained the life of that animal,” explains Eugene Gu, the founder and CEO of Ganogen, Inc. in Redwood, Calif. “Our long-term goal is to grow human organs in animals, to end the human donor shortage.” [1]

LiveScience.com reports, “The research shows that it is feasible to remove a kidney from an aborted human fetus, and implant the organ into a rat, where the kidney can grow to a larger size.”
From the Ganogen.com website:

Study results have been published in the Jan. 22 issue of the American Journal of Transplantation.

The ethics question

To its credit, Live Science directly addresses the moral issues surrounding this technology, even offering quotes from a bioethicist who says the practice won’t be tolerated. As reported on the website:

Arthur Caplan, a bioethicist at NYU Langone Medical Center, said the study itself did not concern him. However, “there is no way we’re ever going to use fetal human kidneys or any other solid organs for transplant,” Caplan said. “American society is morally uncomfortable enough about abortion that growing organs from fetal remains will never be accepted, and will be banned in state after state.”

The researchers said they hope Caplan is wrong…

The Ganogen.com website does not appear to contain any ethics statement defining any limitations on how the developed technology might be used. It appears to company has likely not considered the ethical implications of its research. While there’s no doubt the founders of the company have entered this realm with the best of intentions, they appear to be young, brilliant and naive, wholly unaware of what the roads to Hell are paved with.

Here’s a picture, also from the Ganogen.com website, showing some of the organs they’ve managed to grow from kidney tissue harvested from aborted human babies:

Abortion farms and organ factories

Western medicine today is dominated by the attitude of “heroic interventionism” lead by “medical mechanics” who celebrate each other’s abilities to grow, harvest and transplant organs across an ever-expanding list of animal and human subjects.

But just because you can achieve such transplantation results doesn’t mean you should. In the same way, yes you can genetically engineer food crops to combine insect genes with plant genes and release them into the wild, but it’s probably not very wise to do so due to the very real possibility of self-replicating genetic pollution.

What happens if this new fetal tissue organ harvesting procedure becomes so successful that millions of customers line up to buy the new organs? You’d very quickly see for-profit medical corporations setting up fetal abortion farms to harvest their organs for the “organ factory.”

Young women would be paid (or kidnapped) to get pregnant and have their unborn babies harvested for the organ tissue. Actually, this step is practically happening today as companies like Stem Express in Placerville, California, already sell aborted human fetal tissue for “medical research.”

In Nigeria, a baby farm was already in operation where teenage girls were kidnapped and forced to be impregnated against their will, only to give birth and have their children stolen away for human trafficking profits. “Thirty-two pregnant girls were rescued from a maternity home run by a trafficking ring in the southern city of Aba,” reports The Guardian. [2] “The girls, mostly of school age, were allegedly locked up at the Cross Foundation clinic so they could produce babies to be sold for illegal adoption or for use in ritual witchcraft.”

U.S. corporations could then purchase the harvested aborted fetal tissue from such “baby factories” being run in other countries, then they’d bring the fetal tissue to U.S. facilities where large numbers of rats (which are mammals) are subjected to the torturous procedure of having their bodies cut open and implanted with the harvested human fetal organ cells in order to grow human kidneys.

Once the kidneys grow to a suitable size, the rats would obviously be killed to harvest those organs, which would then be transported to hospitals to be surgically transplanted into humans for profit. The mainstream media would dutifully celebrate the “lifesaving medical breakthrough” and describe the mad scientists as heroes for humanity.

The medical Matrix: turning a human baby into a profit center for medical corporations

If there’s money to be made from harvesting the organs of aborted babies, make no mistake that there are corporations more than willing to profit from the blood money.

Even today, western medicine does not consider a human baby to be “alive” until after it is born… even though an unborn child shows every sign of life that would normally be considered “alive” in a rigorous scientific context. The unborn baby shows a heartbeat, brain activity, cellular growth, nutrient metabolism, waste elimination, muscular movement and even demonstrates emotions and reactions to stimuli. Clearly an unborn baby is alive. This not deniable except by those who are intentionally dishonest.

But thanks to a medical system that can abandon all ethics and declare an unborn baby to be something less than a living human being, there’s nothing stopping biotechnology corporations from harvesting aborted human babies for profit.

And because there’s no moral boundary against doing this with one baby, there’s also no moral boundary against doing this with millions of babies in an “abortion farm” organ harvesting operation carried by a public company with its own stock symbol on Wall Street. Who knows, maybe your favorite retirement mutual fund will buy some shares, too, because all that matters are the earnings per share, right?

Here’s a picture of a modern-day chicken meat factory. Replace the chickens with human babies and you begin to get an idea of the future where medical science operates without human ethics:

Watch The Island movie for a preview of how this might play out

In the sci-fi movie The Island, starring Ewan McGregor, the world’s wealthy elite pay a biotech corporation to raise human clones in a medical facility as “living organ banks.” Those human clones are later killed to have their organs harvested for transplantation into the paying customer.

Much like in our own world today, the clones are controlled through a system of total media propaganda. Regular media broadcasts remind the clones that it’s unauthorized to venture outside the city because the entire world has been destroyed in a nuclear war and is now contaminated with radiation, they’re told. This is conducted in exactly the same way citizens of our modern world are scared into government compliance through totally fabricated or engineered stories of terrorism.

When clones are ready to have their organs harvested, they are told they’ve “won the lottery” to retire in luxury on a tropical island. In reality, they are euthanized and cut open to have their organs harvested for corporate profits.

This scene from the film shows one clone waking up during the organ harvesting procedure and attempting to escape:

The cloned citizens of The Island are brutally controlled by the corporation and forced to live a life of total obedience and conformity. Even their diet is rigorously controlled by the corporation, but not out of any desire to promote health. Rather, it’s a desire by the corporation to make sure its “product” remains healthy, harvestable and sellable.

All along, the cloned humans — which are considered corporate “property” — are kept wholly oblivious to the real world and told how lucky they are to be the last of the survivors of the nuclear war (which never happened). This is the modern-day equivalent to President Obama telling us all how good the U.S. economy is doing and how lucky we are to be living in America.

What was once sci-fi may soon be reality

The greatest problem with science today is that it almost entirely conforms to corporate interests. As a result, it has no respect for ethics or morals. Whatever makes the most money becomes the new “science” of the day, regardless of the implications for human suffering or widespread tragedy.

Tinkering with life — via genetic engineering, mass deployment of agricultural chemicals, cloning or organ harvesting — is a territory fraught with ethical landmines. But motivated by greed, corporations will drive humanity right through a landscape littered with such landmines, oblivious to the violations of ethics, human rights or environmental integrity they are unleashing.

Make no mistake: If it were medically feasible right now to generate millions of dollars in transplant profits from the body of a two-year-old infant, the biotech corporations would have already declared two-year-olds to be “not yet human” and there would be massive farms running right this very minute harvesting organs from two-year-olds. Any person who protested the practice would, of course, be instantly labeled, “anti-science.”

Case in point: There’s money to be made right now from injecting two-year-olds with toxic metals such as mercury and aluminum, both of which are still intentionally manufactured into vaccines. Any person who protests the injecting of children with mercury is immediately labeled “anti-science” today, even though the science clearly says mercury is toxic to human neurology. Calls for removing neurotoxic substances from vaccines are met with derision by the vaccine industry, which insists all children should be injected with dozens of vaccines no matter how toxic the ingredients in them.

The exploitation of children’s bodies has always been a profit center for medical corporations, and human organ harvesting, growing and transplantation may simply be the next step up for an industry deeply rooted in the evil that comes from ignoring medical ethics while prioritizing medical profits.

In effect, we are all living in The Island and being lied to on a daily basis about what’s real. The truth, it turns out, does not support the profit interests of the all-powerful corporations.

Baby Screamed During Live-Birth Abortion, We Can’t Forget This Baby’s Cries


Members of Congress next week have an opportunity to right a travesty of injustice. Every day in the United States, babies are silently screaming in late-term abortions that deprive them of their right to life.

As Congressman Trent Franks told LifeNews.com recently, “More than 18,000 ‘very late term’ abortions are performed every year on perfectly healthy unborn babies in America. These are innocent and defenseless children who can not only feel pain, but who can survive outside of the womb in most cases, and who are torturously killed without even basic anesthesia.”

“Many of them cry and scream as they die, but because it is amniotic fluid going over their vocal cords instead of air, we don’t hear them,” he said.

ultrasound4d28Not all babies scream silently during abortions. The cries of some babies are hear loud and clear.

A former employee at the abortion clinic Kermit Gosnell ran in Philadelphia described how she heard a baby scream during a live-birth abortion. Abortion clinic employee Sherry West described an incident which “really freaked (her) out” and related to the jury how she heard a child scream who was born alive following an abortion.

West remembered how she referred to the dead children killed in these gruesome abortion procedures as “specimens” so she could avoid the mental trauma associated with knowing how they died.  As local media reported:

Sherry West, of Bear, said she was loyal to Gosnell – who is now facing multiple counts of murder for allegedly killing children after they were delivered alive at his clinic – but said the incident “really freaked me out.”

When Assistant District Attorney Joanne Pescatore pressed the 53-year-old West for specifics about the incident, West struggled to answer, clearly uncomfortable with the memory.

“I can’t describe it. It sounded like a little alien,” West testified, telling a judge and Philadelphia Court of Common Pleas jury that the body of the child was about 18 to 24 inches long and was one of the largest babies she had seen delivered during abortion procedures at Gosnell’s clinic.

West said she saw the child, whose face and features were not yet completely formed, lying on a glass tray on a shelf and she told a co-worker to call Gosnell about it and fled the room.

Congress has an opportunity next week to hear the screams of aborted babies and take action. Republicans in the House of Representatives will hold a vote on the anniversary of Roe v. Wade late this month on a marquee bill to ban abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy because unborn children feel intense pain in abortions.

Top Republicans and leading pro-life groups have been promoting the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act that bans abortions from after 20-weeks of pregnancy up to the day of birth.

SIGN THE PETITION! Congress Must Ban Abortions Because Babies Feel Intense Pain

A national poll by The Polling Company found that, after being informed that there is scientific evidence that unborn children are capable of feeling pain at least by 20 weeks, 64% would support a law banning abortion after 20 weeks, unless the mother’s life was in danger.   Only 30% said they would oppose such a law.

A November 2014 poll from Quinnipiac found that 60 percent of Americans support legislation limiting abortions after 20 weeks, including 56 percent of Independents and 46 percent of Democrats.

During the hearing on the last bill, former abortion practitioner Anthony Levatino told members of the committee the gruesome details of his former abortion practice and how he became pro-life following the tragic automobile accident of his child.

Another bombshell dropped during the hearing came from Dr. Maureen Condic, who is Associate Professor of Neurobiology and Adjunct Professor of Pediatrics at the University of Utah School of Medicine. She testified that the unborn child is capable of reacting to pain as early as 8-10 weeks. This is when most abortions in America take place.

The bill relies on the science of fetal pain to establish a Constitutional reason for Congress to ban abortions late in pregnancy. The science behind the concept of fetal pain is fully established and Dr. Steven Zielinski, an internal medicine physician from Oregon, is one of the leading researchers into it. He first published reports in the 1980s to validate research showing evidence for it.

He has testified before Congress that an unborn child could feel pain at “eight-and-a-half weeks and possibly earlier” and that a baby before birth “under the right circumstances, is capable of crying.”

He and his colleagues Dr. Vincent J. Collins and Thomas J. Marzen  were the top researchers to point to fetal pain decades ago. Collins, before his death, was Professor of Anesthesiology at Northwestern University and the University of Illinois and author of Principles of Anesthesiology, one of the leading medical texts on the control of pain.

“The functioning neurological structures necessary to suffer pain are developed early in a child’s development in the womb,” they wrote.

“Functioning neurological structures necessary for pain sensation are in place as early as 8 weeks, but certainly by 13 1/2 weeks of gestation. Sensory nerves, including nociceptors, reach the skin of the fetus before the 9th week of gestation. The first detectable brain activity occurs in the thalamus between the 8th and 10th weeks. The movement of electrical impulses through the neural fibers and spinal column takes place between 8 and 9 weeks gestation. By 13 1/2 weeks, the entire sensory nervous system functions as a whole in all parts of the body,” they continued.

With Zielinski and his colleagues the first to provide the scientific basis for the concept of fetal pain, Dr. Kanwaljeet Anand has provided further research to substantiate their work.

One leading expert in the field of fetal pain, Dr. Kanwaljeet S. Anand at the University of Tennessee, stated in his expert report commissioned by the U.S. Department of Justice, “It is my opinion that the human fetus possesses the ability to experience pain from 20 weeks of gestation, if not earlier, and the pain perceived by a fetus is possibly more intense than that perceived by term newborns or older children.”

“The neural pathways are present for pain to be experienced quite early by unborn babies,” explains Steven Calvin, M.D., perinatologist, chair of the Program in Human Rights Medicine, University of Minnesota, where he teaches obstetrics.

Dr. Colleen A. Malloy, Assistant Professor, Division of Neonatology at Northwestern University in her testimony before the House Judiciary Committee in May 2012 said, “[w]hen we speak of infants at 22 weeks LMP [Note: this is 20 weeks post fertilization], for example, we no longer have to rely solely on inferences or ultrasound imagery, because such premature patients are kicking, moving, reacting, and developing right before our eyes in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit.”

“In today’s medical arena, we resuscitate patients at this age and are able to witness their ex-utero growth and development. Medical advancement and technology have enabled us to improve our ability to care for these infants…In fact, standard of care for neonatal intensive care units requires attention to and treatment of neonatal pain,” Dr. Malloy testified. She continued, “[t]hus, the difference between fetal and neonatal pain is simply the locale in which the pain occurs. The receiver’s experience of the pain is the same. I could never imagine subjecting my tiny patients to horrific procedures such as those that involve limb detachment or cardiac injection.”

Abortion is Big Business Too! That’s why the governement is pushing it.


Planned Parenthood Abortion Corporation Kills 327,653 Babies In 2013 Report

abortion-is-equal-to-murder-say-no-to-abortion

The abortion giant Planned Parenthood has released its 2013 annual report and the new numbers indicate it did more abortions than the year before — killing 327,653 babies in abortions while taking in millions in taxpayer funds.

Planned Parenthood Federation of America has released its 2013-2014 Annual Report and Jim Sedlak, vice president of American Life League, broke down the numbers. The report indicates Planned Parenthood did 327,653 abortions in 2013, an increase over the 327,166 abortions it did in 2012.

While it remains America’s biggest abortion corporation, the “nonprofit” continued to make money — bringing in $305.4 million last year and $305.3 million this year. Planned Parenthood continued to receive over a half-billion dollars in taxpayer money, as it took in $540 million in 2012 and $528 million in 2013.

“Despite this lack of increase in its primary business, Planned Parenthood continued to receive over a half-billion dollars in taxpayer money,” Sedlak said. “It has such a tremendous publicity machine that it convinced corporate and private donors to increase donations by more than $75 million (from $315.4 million to $391.8 million).”

“The increased donations, plus an increase of $28 million in “other operating revenue” and the reduction in costs from closing clinics, led to a near-record $127.1 million in profits for the largest abortion chain in the nation. This was the second highest reported annual profit in Planned Parenthood’s history,” he explained to LifeNews.

Some other takeaways from Planned Parenthood’s own figures:

  • In 2013, abortions made up 94% of Planned Parenthood’s pregnancy services.
  • For every adoption referral, Planned Parenthood performed 174 abortions.
  • While abortions rose, Planned Parenthood adoption referrals dropped 14% in one year, and prenatal care services dropped 4%.
  • Planned Parenthood’s cancer prevention services are down 17% over one year, and contraceptive services dropped by 4%.
  • During fiscal year 2013-2014, Planned Parenthood received more than $528 million in taxpayer funding, or more than $1.4 million per day, in the form of government grants, contracts, and Medicaid reimbursements.
  • Taxpayer funding accounts for 41% of Planned Parenthood’s overall revenue.
  • Planned Parenthood reported more than $127 million in excess revenue, and more than $1.4 billion in net assets.
