Federal law prohibits the sale of human organs, including those obtained from aborted fetuses, but the government doesn’t seem to think the rules apply to them.
According to the Washington Examiner, new documents obtained by conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch reportedly outline how the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) used taxpayer dollars to purchase a variety of “fresh” fetal organs and tissues, including fetal heads. The shocking revelations come by way of records released per a judge’s ruling in a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit first filed by Judicial Watch in 2019.
“This issue should be front and center”
The records include 198 pages of emailed correspondence and billing documents that reportedly lay bare how the FDA was purchasing organs and other tissue from aborted fetuses from a supplier known as Advanced Bioscience Resources (ABR) between 2012 and 2018.
The materials were reportedly used by FDA researchers in experiments involving “humanized mice” that were implanted with human tissues and genetically engineered to suppress their immune systems.
According to a disturbing and detailed press release from Judicial Watch, tens of thousands of taxpayer dollars were used to purchase organs and tissues, including fetal heads, at hundreds of dollars apiece.
The correspondence also reportedly makes clear that FDA researchers preferred the organs and tissues to be delivered “fresh” and not “frozen,” among other requirements.
“Chopping up aborted human beings for their organs and tissue is a moral and legal outrage,” Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said in the group’s release. “This issue should be front and center in any debate about America’s barbaric abortion industry,” he added.
“There should be a criminal investigation”
The Daily Caller sought comment from the FDA regarding the bombshell revelations and received in reply a statement that didn’t deny the reports, but instead sought to reassure readers that the practice had been discontinued. (So, no big deal, right?)
In 2018, under former President Donald Trump, the FDA indeed canceled the contract arrangement with ABR. Of course, the FDA failed to mention that President Joe Biden had reversed that move in April and cleared the way for the atrocities to resume.
“I’ve been doing this for 23 years. These documents we’ve gotten from the FDA and our other lawsuit…they are the worst things I’ve ever seen,” Fitton told the Daily Caller. “The most troubling documents I’ve ever seen,” he said.
“There are few Americans who would support chopping up the remains of unborn human beings for scientific research, using their organs, selling their heads for whatever Frankenstein experiments, the FDA and their researchers want to cook up,” the Judicial Watch president added.
“It’s barbarism,” he concluded. “There should be a criminal investigation to figure out whether the laws against profiteering for fetal organ trafficking were violated as a court suggested they may have been.”
