The dark side of biotech: expert details grisly fate of fetal body parts
Life Site News ^ | December 9, 2010 | KATHLEEN GILBERT

Dr. Theresa Deisher speaks at the HLI conference last weekend.

WASHINGTON, D.C., December 8, 2010 (LifeSiteNews.com) - Every day in America, countless packages are carefully transferred for use by government, university, pharmaceutical and other biotechnology laboratories. Some of these end up advancing development of products such as cosmetics and food additives; others are used directly as a form of therapy.

The material in those packages are human body parts - eyes, ears, limbs, brain, skin - now an indispensable commodity for many U.S. researchers and scientists, and a lucrative export of America’s abortion clinics.

To see an example of an order form for fetal body parts, click here.

Dr. Theresa Deisher, a molecular and cellular physiologist and an internationally-recognized expert in regenerative medicine, explored the routine “commoditizing” of unborn human beings in modern biotechnology in a speech in Washington, DC on Friday. Deisher is Managing Member and Research and Development Director at AVM Biotechnology, and has several years’ experience as a commercial scientist at top pharmaceutical companies. Her work has led to dozens of patented medical breakthroughs.

Historically, when man wants to exploit other men, “what we first have to do is alter our way of thinking about them, and then of course we actually have to dehumanize them, and we usually do that by denying them a soul: so therefore they’re not actually human like the rest of us,” Deisher told an audience at the “50 Years of the Pill” conference hosted by Human Life International of America.

This, she explained, is precisely the scenario with the smallest human lives in medical research today - and not just embryos, but unborn children of all trimesters - whose body parts grow more valuable as they mature.

She noted that an article in the Puget Sound Business Journal discovered that the University of Washington filled out more than 4,400 requests for fresh fetal body parts from fetal tissue for the purpose of biomedical research in 2009, the first time hard numbers of such transactions were uncovered.

“It has to be approved by an institutional review board, so they think they’re applying ethics to this because they reviewed the use of this,” said Deisher. “What do you think that relationship might have to do with doctors encouraging abortions?” She estimates that as many as 1.87 million such transactions - requesting individual body parts such as eyes and liver - could happen each year in America.

The scientist also noted that plenty of scientific literature, available on the Internet, discusses the optimal age for a child’s death in order to obtain useful body parts: one such professional noted that the best heart tissue is obtained from a child of 22 weeks’ gestation.

In addition to research, Deisher said the bodies of unborn children are being used “as not only biomedical research tools, but as actual medical therapies.” “Fetuses 12, 14, 16, 18 weeks gestation are ground up and their cells are implanted in people who have had strokes or Parkinson’s disease,” she said.

Another ethical battlefield involves the use of cell lines derived from aborted children. Contrary to popular belief, today’s fetal stem cell lines derive from not one, but several abortions - many of them in the second trimester - and will have to be replaced with fresh victims as they are only useful for about 30 to 35 years, said the scientist.

Fetal cell line vaccines such as measles-mumps-rubella, chicken pox, and hepatitis A are not only morally problematic, said Deisher, but their use has a dramatic correlation with an epidemic on the rise: autism.

When examining the points at which autism diagnosis mysteriously spiked in the U.S., said Deisher, “the only thing that is associated with these change points is the introduction of a fetal cell vaccine.” She said the correlation even holds true for the U.S., Canada, Great Britain, Wales, Denmark, Japan, and southeastern Asian countries: “in every country we have looked at, they have different change points, every one is associated with an aborted fetal event.” No other variable, she said, has correlated so closely to the pattern of autism diagnosis.

Deisher blamed such commercialization, in part, on the growing tendency to see children as “a choice rather than a blessing,” due to technology controlling fertility such as the hormonal birth control pill.

“From that point, it was pretty easy for us to begin looking at children as a material thing, a new car or a mansion, a commodity,” she said.

Ground up children?

If I was a patient, and I was told about this option for Parkinson’s, I would rather shake to death than even consider it.

Those who’ve gone through such madness are beyond the pale.

I never knew that there was such a thing as fetal cell line vaccines. What was wrong with the previous method of making them? Correlation does not equal causation but I hope this possible relation with the spike in autism is being investigated.

“I went and checked out the list”.

Did you see that they even had DISCOUNTS?! Discounts.... like a sale or coupon thing. Beyond words.

The next time I’m scheduled to work at the women’s hospital, I’m going to try very hard to get my hands on a consent for for these procedures. I seriously doubt that women are being told that their dead babies are traded on a parts market. Ugh.

I knew this has gone on for years since World Net Daily did an expose in the early 2000s but seeing it again is making me sick. I work in a University medical system. How much of this is occuring under my nose? What’s worse, how much of this is being done by surgeons & physicians that I know personally? I won’t look at my co-workers the same tomorrow.

When cultural standards dictate that sex is not to be employed solely in monogamous, faithful family life, but is considered one's own individual enjoyment without any restrictions whatsoever, this hellish cannibalism is one of the inevitable results. Birth control, easy divorce, abortion - these are all part of the cause. The Self and it's lust, greed and personal desires are now "god" for many people. With no care whatsoever at who is harmed or destroyed, as long as the fire of lust is gratified. Lust not just meaning sexual desire, but the entire spectrum of "I want it all and I want it NOW!"

A society that does not follow the rules set down by God is a society that becomes hell within a few generations. We are seeing it now; but unless things change, it will get much, much worse.

>> Fetuses 12, 14, 16, 18 weeks gestation are ground up

Unreal. 18 weeks is over 4 months. That’s nearly halfway through an average pregnancy.

I have absolutely no concern whatsoever for welfare of the purveyors that feed this depraved market with flesh of the unborn.

Thanks for the ping lj.

It’s a freaking horror show.

A couple of years ago I found a list of all the ingredients in various vaccines from the CDC.

I noticed stuff like “human serum”, “human blood” and IIRC “human (something else) tissue” and I wondered at the time where they got this human stuff.

Now I guess I know.

I’m going to puke.

I never get vaccines and never will.

I just noticed this:

“food additives”.

Real honest to goodness cannibalism.

Would never happen in our home and this was “fact” years ago when this type of therapy was considered Sci Fi.

What foods are they using this in..

I skimmed over the article and didn’t pick up on the use of the cannible aspect.

God owes Sodom and Gomorrah an apology.

Just because the two happened at the same time doesn’t mean that using fetal cells caused autism, but I thought the information about the rise in autism and suspicions that vaccines might be the cause make sense with this. If this turns out to be correct, how very tragic for each and every family impacted by this. 1 of 10,000 vs 1 of 250 with autism now.

I’m almost beyond tears at this point.

It certainly is. The thing that really gets me is that this horror show is not the end of it. These are not the final plans of those pushing evil. It gets worse and worse. They will never stop or compromise. They want to turn the entire world into a hell on earth - of sodomy, death, cannibalism, torture and every perversion imaginable.

It’s hard for some conservatives to wrap their minds around this. Those pushing evil look (usually) normal, they drive on the right side of the road, don’t carry chainsaws dripping blood around, no visible fangs or tails. Conservatives tend to give people the benefit of the doubt, are will to compromise and be rational so assume others are the same.

Those pushing evil are not the same. They mean ruin and they are driven be the most nefarious of passions, they are greatly determined.

I think dire things will have to happen for them to be stopped.

Agreed. Imho, good and honest people with busy lives often do not comprehend or recognize evil. Who could have imagined a story like this in their wildest nightmares? Information and education are essential.

America’s been warned. This must stop, or the “financial crisis” was just a dress rehearsal.
