WASHINGTON, Sept 30 ( – The web site for the US government’s National Institutes of Health (NIH) advertises the availability of aborted baby body parts for research. “Human embryonic and fetal tissues are available from the Central Laboratory for Human Embryology at the University of Washington,” says the “availability of human fetal tissue” guide from the NIH. “The laboratory, which is supported by the National Institutes of Health, can supply tissue from normal or abnormal embryos and fetuses of desired gestational ages between 40 days and term,” says the memo, which is exposed in the current issue of The Wanderer, a US Catholic newspaper. 

The NIH guide confirms the horror story of the baby parts market in vivid detail even down to the express shipping of the “specimens.” Specimens are obtained within minutes of passage and are shipped by overnight express, arriving the day following procurement.” Inquiries are directed to Dr. Alan Fantel of the Department of Pediatrics at the University of Washington in Seattle.
