But then have read that it is a multi- billion dollar industry for those who collect the terminated potential humans tiny bodies, to use them for research and products.
I will add to the chorus. Where have you read this?

I have no problem whatsoever in using something that is now dead for research that could possibly find cures for a variety of diseases.
Until we became able to grow Stem Cells by genetically manipulating other cells a DECADE of research was lost all because of some misplaced morality. The cures for everything from a variety of Cancers to M.S., Alzhiemers, AIDS, Hep C, Herpes, and many many more.
It pisses me off to no end that people cannot understand the difference between a few living cells and a Sentient Human Being. The arguement is that a fertilized egg is alive...OF COURSE IT IS! So is the carrot I am eating or the Blood Cells I donate or a Cabbage!
The reality is that living cells are just living cells and there is very little difference morally if they are plant, animal or Human. A person scratches and kills Millions of living cells just by doing it.
No one would agree that it is acceptable for a Cosmetic Company to be able to use Ground Up Fetus as a facial cream but neither is it acceptable to condem the same company for using Stem Cells to develop a Gene Theropy Cream that cures Skin Cancer. I don't care if the cells were harvested from an aborted fetus although this is no longer necessary as we can grow Stem Cells from other cells.
At least the death will have meaning.
Do not doubt ever that evil exists.
Do not doubt ever that sociopaths are in existence.
Do not ever doubt , that death profits others, and that shareholders clap.
There is also ReNeuron, an English company that has applied for clinical trials in the United States. ReNeuron wants to use stem cells from aborted fetuses to treat stroke victims. In an interview with Innovaro Pharmalicensing, the managing director of ReNeuron explained where the company gets its stem cells. He said, “We access human fetal-brain material from terminated pregnancies. They’re typically about 8-to-10-week fetuses.”
There is also Neocutis, a San Francisco company, which is selling cosmetic and dermatological products that have come from aborted fetal tissue. Neocutis openly admits that its PSP (Processed Skin Cell Proteins) products are derived from the cells of an electively aborted fetus. These PSP products are being marketed to treat “around-the-eye wrinkles and puffiness, to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, and provide long-lasting hydration for luminous skin.”
The first production step comprises a proprietary method for purification of HuCNS-SC cells from donated fetal brain tissue procured from an FDA-registered, not-for-profit agency, in compliance with Good Tissue Practice (GTP) and all other applicable state and federal regulations.
Further purification of the FACS-isolated HuCNS-SC cells is achieved through selective cell culture in a defined, serum-free medium. From one tissue source, we are able to grow billions of cells, which can be used to create cryopreserved cell banks.
xHuCNS-SC Master Cell Banks (MCBs) are cyropreserved at an early cell culture stage, and are the source of HuCNS-SC Working Cell Banks (WCBs), which are cryopreserved at later cell culture stages.
HuCNS-SC patient doses are manufactured from a Working Cell Bank (WCB). For release, the final product must once again meet a series of quality control specifications for safety, purity, identity and potency.
