Essentially, fetus brains were “minced” (the actual word used in the paper published in the Journal of Neuroscience) and the glial cells, cells that support neurons in the nervous systems, were extracted and injected into lab mice. The mice incorporated the glial cells into their brain and “outperformed normal mice almost fourfold in a variety of cognition tests.”

I can't tell if your response is satire. I don't care about spinning words. The act of aborting a baby is called "abortion". If you condone the act then it's "pro-abortion". A "choice" is a more generic term and can mean literally anything. I'm "pro-choice" when I choose to drink tea over water, etc.... Since we're talking about abortion, let's be specific.
Anyway just putting the info out. "Arguments" like this one are too pedantic for me. Enjoy.

a reply to: TheLegend I'm sure you'd have a different response if you saw patients with dementia or Alzheimer's, maybe even your grand parents or parents that these experiments could potentially cure?

Hairy eyeball time - this made me think especially about the baby mentioned above aged 22 weeks - in that obviously we (the impersonal) don't bury with these dead with any respect. Just a side line thought but an vaguely upsetting one.
I don't come at this from a religious perspective and am pro choice/abortion and I appreciate that circumstances are that a woman just has the choice to 'get rid' but not what happens to the body. But at that age and size, literally considered as 'garbage' seems unkind or even disrespectful, we bury murderers - to state the least obvious.
