Woe to the Bloody City!
New Oxford Review
November 2000By Joseph Collison
“FIND OUT HOW YOU CAN TURN YOUR PATIENT’S DECISION INTO
SOMETHING WONDERFUL” reads the glossy brochure sent out to
abortion mills by Opening Lines, a fetal tissue “wholesaler.” To medical
research labs and college science departments Opening Lines
offers “FRESH FETAL TISSUE HARVESTED AND SHIPPED TO YOUR
SPECIFICATIONS WHERE AND WHEN YOU NEED IT.”
Dr. Dodge of Thomas Jefferson University orders “Whole intact legs,
including ENTIRE HIP JOINT, 22-24 weeks gest[ation]” from the
International Institute for the Advancement of Medicine. He specifies “4-6
specimens per shipment…. To be removed from fetal cadaver within 10
minutes,” and wants “no abnormalities.” Dr. Charles Cintron of Schepens
Eye Research Institute sends a standing order for two each of hearts,
testes, prostates, duodenums, epidermises, adrenals, ovaries, livers,
pancreases, and eyes — all from fetuses of 20 to 22 weeks gestation.
Jane Lebkowski of Applied Immune Sciences Inc. orders one each of a
thymus, lymphoid node, liver and bone, one shipment a week for one year,
15 to 22 weeks gestation, “charted for age, sex, blood type, and medical
history.” Another party wants “Limbs weekly, Thymus & Liver twice a
month.” So the orders go to America’s wholesalers of “baby parts.”
At least five companies buy and sell fetal body parts in what Canadian
newsmagazine Alberta Report (Aug. 25, 1999) calls “a vast trade in human
tissue from babies that are aborted, and sometimes vivisected, to satiate
the exploding multibillion-dollar biotechnology industry.” (Vivisected means
cut up while still alive.)
