The kidneys from aborted babies were put in rats to grow and then be transplanted to humans.
I want to say that you can’t make this stuff up. But that’s the point. People do make stuff like this up in movies like Coma or Soylent Green or The Island. Dystopian science fiction novels present these horrific possibilities and now life imitates grotesque art.
The story is reported by CNS News: “Scientists Transplant Organs From Aborted Babies Into Rats for Future Harvest.”
Live Science reported in January on research being done by scientists at Ganogen, Inc., a biotech company in California, that transplants organs from aborted babies into lab rats with the goal of growing them for use in patients who need organ transplants.
“Researchers say they have developed a new technique that will get more kidneys to people who need transplants, but the method is sure to be controversial: 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,” the Jan. 21 article stated.
In the article, Eugene Gu, a medical student at Duke University and the founder and CEO of the company, said “Our long-term goal is to grow human organs in animals, to end the human donor shortage.”
This is so gross that I hardly know what to say. We are now re-inventing human sacrifice where the murder of the weak is justified to benefit the strong.
At the moment we can be relatively certain that no one has yet participated in an abortion for the sake of such a procedure or in order to be paid for offering up a child for such a procedure, but if this becomes a successful “medical” practice, then we may see the time when abortions become cheaper because of what can be done with the remains of the dead baby.
These scientists are less human than the rats.
