Use Aborted Children to Make up Shortfall of Transplant Organs: Oxford Stem Cell Expert
LifeSiteNews ^ | 3/12/09 | Hilary White

Posted on 03/12/2009 1:43:27 PM PDT by wagglebee

LONDON, March 12, 2009 (LifeSiteNews.com) - An Oxford University stem cell expert has urged the use of aborted children in organ transplants as a solution to the shortage of available organs. Sir Richard Gardner has called for a feasibility study on the possibility of obtaining organs from the bodies of aborted babies.

He said, "It is probably a more realistic technique in dealing with the shortage of kidney donors than others."

The Daily Mail reports that pro-life and Christian groups have called the proposal "morally abhorrent," and said it will result in abortions being timed to suit transplant patients.

Dr Peter Saunders, of the Christian Medical Fellowship, said the transplants would be immoral as every human being, even the unborn, deserved "protection, respect, wonder and empathy."

Fears that this suggestion will create a trade in aborted children have their justification in the work of US pro-life groups who have in the past uncovered the relationship between the abortion industry and the trade in aborted body parts for medical research and the creation of vaccines. (See: http://www.lifesitenews.com/ldn/2007/nov/07113008.html)

In 2005, the trade in aborted fetuses made headlines after reports came from Ukraine that newborn babies were disappearing from maternity wards to fuel the increasing demand for body parts. One Ukrainian research institute was advertising fetal body parts, such as "Foetus spleen cells," and "fragments of foetus spine," for sale in medical research.

No, they will actually start conceiving babies to cut up and use for "spare parts".

“No, they will actually start conceiving babies to cut up and use for “spare parts”. “

Exactly why Bush rightfully opposed embryonic stem cell research to begin with.

If you have to resort to destroying life to “save” it, you’ve lost your humanity.

Um, that is precisely what this wicked man has just approved of doing. Embryos are humans at an earliest age. The current occupant of the Oval Office just signed an EO removing restriction upon conceiving humans to harvest their body parts for research using taxpayer’s monies. [[ Yes, the stem cells of the embryo-aged human are the body parts of that very young human being. ]]

And the secular humanists make another great leap forward in ethics.

Absolutely. It was always a given that there will be totally immoral, ethically challenged, sick individuals that will view the new ruling by bRack as open season on the fetus. Brave New World indeed.

"Use Aborted Children to Make up Shortfall of Transplant Organs"

You had to know it was coming.

The Left (Democrats in the US) is the Party of Death.

This would be a huge profit-center for abortion clinics. And other than Trial Lawyers and Wall Street Investment Bankers, guess who contributes big bucks to Dem Politicians?

Exactly. There will spring up a gray market to pay feckless women to conceive babies who then will be aborted as needed. This would be legal now, btw. The only thing lacking is the demand for parts. Essentially it will end up like a farm.

No surprises here. I have read articles stating that access to fetal tissue is the ultimate aim of the ESCR/Cloning cabal.

Late-term abortion. Premature birth. Born alive. Whatever.

Parts is parts.

"No, they will actually start conceiving babies to cut up and use for "spare parts"."

Not until they raise them to the proper age so that the organs are a better match for mama. What would you say, around 10-12 years old?

"Why was I born, mama?" "Mama needs a heart transplant, sister."

Take a few moments to read A Modest Proposal by Jonathan Swift — Google it - it’s online - my keyboard is broken so I can’t type links or even a period to end this sentence — but I note that anyone who uses embryos to cure their problems might as well be eating newborns to stave off hunger

Yeah. Where's that thread about the guy whose organs were harvested while he was still alive?

However nice and utiltarian it sounds, the parts of bodies are not there primarily to be used for other people in transplants. We have a situation now where these crackpot liberals and secular humanists in medicine and science are making these decisions without any grounding in morality or ethics. Frankensteins. A medical or science degree does not confer authority to make these kinds of decisions.

Jonathan Swift's A Modest Proposal has been a favorite of mine since high school. It has long been considered one of the finest pieces of satire ever written, and now the culture of death is using it as a "how to" manual.

There is a very short trip from using embryonic stem cells to “just growing the embryo a bit more” and harvesting the organs.

That’s what is wrong with using embryonic stem cells..
