The REST OF THE Planned Parenthood story…
I realize that women have been aborting unwanted babies for centuries, but that does not make it right. I understand the arguments both for and against using the fetal tissue for the betterment of humans. But there has to be a point where we stop, step back, and look at the moral ambiguity of what science is capable of versus what is right. At what point do we decide which life is more important? And when does it become an issue of economics? Who decides which lives are more valuable, the unborn versus the elderly versus the wealthy? This is just a tiny fraction of the ethical and unknown questions. What about the DNA that is transferred through the blood to the fetal organs from the animals? How is that going to affect the donor recipient? There has to be some small percentage of transfer, otherwise mothers would not receive DNA from their babies. I know from a purely scientific standpoint the aborted fetus is just wasted tissue that should be used for some form of benefit. That it does not matter once the tissue is removed, who cares whether it is used to fuel a hospital furnace or save a life of another child. Right/wrong, God/science? At what point is the point of having gone too far? They, the Genetic Literacy Project, call it xenotransplantation, but in actuality it is transhumanism.The name of the Redwood City, California bio-tech company is Ganogen, Inc. They do not receive any federal, state, or local funding. It is strictly, privately funded. They get their ‘discarded fetal material’ from a Placerville, California company called Stem Express, who harvests the tissues from dead fetuses. The donors of the fetal tissue have already decided to have the abortion, before they are asked about donation. The donors are made aware of the fact that the tissue may be implanted into animals and that the donor will receive no form of remuneration.
“The researchers transplanted the fetal kidneys into adult rats that lacked an immune system (so as to avoid tissue rejection), and connected the animal’s blood vessels to the organs using a challenging procedure that involved tiny stitches, about three to four times smaller than the width of a human hair. One of the main reasons that previous attempts to transplant fetal organs into animals have failed is due to a difference in the blood pressure between human fetuses and adult animals. In most adult animals, including rats, the average blood pressure is about three times higher than it is in human fetuses. If a fetal organ is transplanted without adjusting the pressure, “the organ basically hemorrhages everywhere,” Gu said. To get around that problem, Gu’s team developed a device, called an arterial flow regulator, which they fitted around the rat’s blood vessels to decrease the pressure of the blood flowing into the fetal kidneys. “About a month after the researchers transplanted the fetal kidneys into the rats, the scientists surgically removed the animal’s own kidneys. The rats that received the transplanted kidneys survived an average of four months after transplant, and one even survived for 10 months”, Gu said. “By comparison, a control group of rats that did not receive a transplanted kidney lived for only three to four days after having their kidneys removed,” the researchers said.
Now, you have seen an aborted baby’s heart beat in a rat, what do you think? Would you want your dying child to have that heart? You have seen kidneys from an aborted baby growing in a rat, would you want one in your child, to get them off of dialysis? And what would the ramifications be ten years from now? How much rat DNA would be in your child? Would your child be less human? What if that kidney was transplanted into a pig so that it could grow large enough for an adult, if you were dying, would you want it? What about the argument that clinical trials of drugs that are safe in animals and not safe in humans, that this would solve that problem? Why not transplant the entire fetus in an animal and save multiple lives?WHERE DO WE DRAW THE LINE? Do you remember the Doctor Gosnell case? The abortion doctor who killed babies? Why would infanticide even be a crime if we can reanimate and grow pieces and parts and eventually the whole? Look closely at this picture, this one one of Gosnell’s victims, what if that kidney growing in that rat was from this baby? Would that make this child’s death a crime just because he was born alive? Watch the video again and look at this picture… Do you really think the three CEOs of Ganogen, Inc. are doing this for altruistic reasons? I doubt that very much, I think they get off on playing GOD and they want to be extremely wealthy. Sooner or later, something is going to go devastatingly wrong…what then?
