DENVER, Colorado, Apr 22 (Lifesitenews.com) - Out of the same state which rocked the world with reports of the recent high school massacre comes a study showing the benefits of using the brains of aborted fetuses to treat Parkinson’s patients. A research team from Denver Colorado has published the results of their study into the macabre procedure noting that each Parkinson’s patient treated required the use of four dead babies. The glowing reports of the success of the procedure are marred by the blood of the babies sacrificed to the god of convenience and science.
The announcement was made yesterday in Toronto at the annual meeting of the American Academy of Neurology. Ethical qualms were summarily dismissed by the lead researcher Dr. Curt Freed of the University of Colorado who asked: “Should this tissue be used to treat a disease or should it be thrown away?. For me that’s a fairly easy ethical question.”
The US study was paid for by the US National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke which shelled out US$4.5 million.
This same unethical research is taking place in Canada at the Victoria General Hospital (VGH) in Nova Scotia. While not funded directly by the government, it is supported by large grants from the Parkinson’s Foundation of Canada. The Nova Scotia division of the Parkinson’s Foundation made a $50,000 contribution to a primary three year study of the fetal tissue transplant procedure and has also funded the current study at VGH.
Other research using tissue from aborted fetuses to help visually impaired patients has also shown some success. Pro-lifers are concerned that these experiments will create a demand for aborted fetuses, turning the completely unregulated abortion industry into an even more profit-driven and lucrative enterprise than it already is.
Worse still (as has already happened) some women will become pregnant with the intent to abort their babies in order to donate the “tissue” to treatment for another family member who has Parkinson’s or another disorder deemed “treatable” with body parts from aborted babies. In 1991, Case Western University ethicist Mary Mahowald and her associates went so far as to propose that pregnancies be prolonged and the method of abortion be modified, if necessary, in order to procure the most fresh, and thus the most useful tissue.
