Here’s a great idea for a horror novel worthy of Stephen King:

A U.S. government agency signs an exclusive contract with one American company to buy tissue from aborted fetuses (gestation 17-22 weeks) that will be used to inject into “humanized mice” used for medical research.

To create a “humanized mouse,” researchers remove its bone marrow and implant thymus and liver tissue from aborted fetuses, to introduce the stem cells and change its immune system.  So, in case you were thinking a “humanized mouse” was something out of Disney cartoon, it’s not, at least in this context.  This is a real, physical lab mouse, altered to have a functioning human immune system so it can be used to test the adverse effects of drugs.  It’s understandable that researchers would want a convenient way to test potential treatments, but they way they go about it in this story is chilling to the marrow.

Since the human fetal tissue must be “fresh,” it can come only from elective abortions, not miscarriages.  (As the plant says in LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS, “Must be blood...must be FRESH!”)

I can think of all sorts of ways this novel could go, all of which are horrific, and all of which involve destroying human babies that are in some cases almost into the third trimester.  Wouldn’t this make a horrifying work of science fiction?  "Humanized mice" reminds me of "Soylent Green" --- they're both people.

Or I could just decide to write a nonfiction book --- or produce a documentary film --- because this is a real story.  The U.S. government agency is our own Food and Drug Administration.  The company is Advanced Bioscience Resources, a California non-profit.  According to ABR, the tissue comes from first- and second-trimester abortions (and some full-term stillbirths) and must conform to specific “tissue characteristics, preservation methods and delivery times.”

As one might expect, the pro-life lobby is on this.  (Apparently, “humanized mice” are a growth industry --- an online search turns up link after link.)  The fetal tissue is being purchased by our government with taxpayer money from a company that has partnered with Planned Parenthood.  Since the sale or trade of tissue from aborted fetuses for profit is illegal, and donations from hospitals and university labs have proven unreliable, nonprofits such as ABR are serving as sort of a “tissue broker,” a go-between for abortion clinics and scientists.  According to its own documents, ABR pays clinics a “nominal fee” to cover costs and then charges the FDA and other clients a markup for their services. 

So it seems the trafficking in aborted fetal tissue is alive and well (unlike the fetuses), the one difference being that now there’s a middle man.  When contacted by a pro-life journalist for comment, the FDA stated that what they are doing is legal and that “where ABR sources its tissue is not the FDA’s business.”

And that attitude truly is horrifying.

    So what can we, the people do about it? President Trump has denied Title X funding for Planned Parenthood. Can’t he sign an executive order stopping the FDA from using taxpayer funds for this as well? Start a petition drive us to get this done!

    This has hot to be stopped! You do not kill and dismember God’s children for experiments! This smacks of Hitlers nazis experimenting with the Jewish people in the concentration camps!??

    This story really makes me Mad/Sad/Sick to my stomach... sorrow for the lost lives of innocent babies. Then to make it HORRIFIC, these people are being paid for murdered babies and their body parts! It is illegal to sell body parts and our government is PAYING for them??? Everything is SO SO messed up, at times it feels hopeless. I have confidence in President Trump and pray God intervenes on behalf of the lost souls.

    Mike I am horrified by this. I am relieved, at least, that the pro-life movement is aware of this. I will add my own efforts to see that this front-and-for my senator, congressman, and President Trump.

    Even so, come, Lord Jesus!

    Absolutely unthinkable! Planned Parenthood now has a buyer for the tissues from the babies they murder - the US Government to perform experiments on "humanized mice"? Just how much insanity can there possibly be? Has to be some deranged leftist thinking going on here in order to ensure Planned Parenthood continues killing babies. Wrong! Just wrong.

    Why on this earth are we paying for this " scientific" testing that is using murdered babies? I am sickened by this!!

    I remember "Soilent Green." We thought this content was so far out there, science fiction for sure, and here it's happening with the most helpless of all of humanity.

    It's sickening beyond words. Greed at the core.

    The idea of aborted babies being used for experimentation is just sickening. Reading about it made me nauseous. Marvelous things are being done with stem cells from umbilical cords and placenta, but that is not a human life. No one had to die. God help us get rid of abortion!

    Gov. Mike, this is worse than a nightmare no matter how you slice it. It's worse than ghoulish. It does smack of Soylent Green. I've often wondered why that movie is not referred to more in this day and time. May God forgive those involved in this scheme. By the way, I can look down the road a bit and see where Soylent Green is plausible.

    How is this LEGAL!?!
    What can be done to stop this atrocity?
    Sounds so much like experiments done on those in German concentration camps

    FDA is so corrupt. Yes what our tax dollars are used for is and always was supposed to be their business!! Why is congress not aware of so much corrupt spending? For instance the NIH ( national institute of health ????????) has used our tax dollars to develop an app called Smart Sex fir black homosexual teens teaching them how to hook up!! Only cost about a million bucks! Next on their radar with our tax dollars a million two hundred thousand fir transgender women to hook up! What the heck is keeping congress from stopping this garbage?

  • Janice Levan

    We need to contact our President and have him look into the FDA for this. Its just horrible! Maybe there will be one or two Senators or Reps that could call this out like it is and get results.

    Of course this is horrifying! But what can we expect! The left decries the separation of ILLEGAL children and their parents/guardians (when many times the children and guardians aren't related at all). They cry, "The poor, poor children!!!!" But, God forbid, that the Supreme Court and new nominees should follow their consciences and restrict abortions in anyway! Who cries for the children then? Only God can help our country now! My heart is always heavy when reading these stories, but thank you, Mike, for keeping us informed!

    As a medical professional I can assure you that the greatest source of “fresh” stem cells is cord blood from term healthy deliveries. Collecting and preserving cord blood is a simple procedure and the supply is practically endless. All of this hoopla about the NEED for fetal tissue to have stem cells for research is simply not true. It is propaganda to make murder palatable and keep abortion legal.

    I think this is the most disgusting evil thing! I also I’m furious that our tax money is part of this evil practice! I still can’t believe what they do to the precious babies. God help us!
