University Implants Aborted Baby Scalps Into Mice
A prominent scientist criticized the University of Pittsburgh this week for “trafficking body parts” from aborted babies for gristly experiments, including one in which babies’ scalps were implanted onto rodents to study the human immune system.
The university has been defending its research with aborted baby body parts, pointing to a recent investigation that found it is “fully compliant with applicable laws.”
But Dr. David Prentice, the vice president of the Charlotte Lozier Institute and a medical researcher, said the investigation, which was commissioned by the university, was too narrow. What’s more, he said there is no need to use unethically obtained tissue from aborted babies in scientific research.
“This tissue is derived via the death of an innocent unborn child,” Prentice told The College Fix in a new interview. “There’s frankly no realistic way that informed consent can be given for the donation of the organs, tissues, and body parts of the child. So this amounts to trafficking body parts. Whether that’s legal or not, it is definitely a lack of respect for the individual who died in this procedure.”
Last year, the Pennsylvania university commissioned the investigation after Judicial Watch and the Center for Medical Progress exposed evidence of babies potentially being born alive in abortions and other disturbing practices at the university. The evidence came from documents they obtained from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services through a Freedom of Information Act request.
