When a retired nurse from Virginia learned from her sister-in-law that a biotechnology company in Rockville, Md., was selling aborted baby parts online, she could hardly believe what she was hearing.
But, she said, I looked on the website and sure enough, they were selling baby parts.
Still incredulous, she decided to dial the phone number on the website.
I called them and gave them my name. I said I was interested in how I could get a fetal heart.
They said, What do you want to use it for? As a retired nurse, I was able to give a plausible answer. I said I was interested in fetal heart slides for research; I chose something from the different examples he gave.
He said, We can get those sections for you. The retired nurse then said she wanted to be sure the specimens would be viable.
The guy said they would be fresh; they dont slice up the heart and prepare the slides until someone orders them.
Capitalbiosciences.com is the website of Capital Biosciences, Inc., which offers a variety of biological products, including a list of 36 different aborted baby parts, ranging from appendix, brain, colon, and lung tissue to ovary, skin, spinal cord, testicle and tonsil tissue.

In April 2008, two weeks before Trig was born with Down's Syndrome, Mrs Palin sent the email to her friends and family from her official government account.
In the touching message, Mrs Palin writes from the voice of God, as 'Trig's creator, your heavenly father'. She addresses the 'unreal, sad and confusing' news that her soon-to-be born child will have Down's Syndrome. The letter's existence had previously known, but only very brief excerpts had been made public.
Writing as God, Mrs Palin wrote, 'I let Trig's mom have an exceptionally comfortable pregnancy so she could enjoy every minute of it...'
She wrote, 'Trig's mom and dad' were told early by doctors that the child 'may provide more challenges and more joy than what they ever may have imagined or ever asked for.
'This new person in your life can help everyone put things in perspective... and get everyone focused on what really matters. The baby will expand your world and let you see and feel things you haven't experienced yet'. The letter also makes unlikely conspiracy theories that have long been circulating on blogs that Trig was actually born to Mrs Palin's unwed daughter Bristol....
