    Live Science reported in January on research being done by scientists at Ganogen, Inc., a biotech company in California, that transplants organs from aborted babies into lab rats with the goal of growing them for use in patients who need organ transplants. “Researchers say they have developed a new technique that will get more kidneys to people who need transplants, but the method is sure to be controversial: The research shows that it is feasible to remove a kidney from an aborted human fetus, and implant the organ into a rat, where the kidney can grow to a larger size,”...

    LifeNews has repeatedly profiled cases where doctors may too quickly began cutting up patients who are not really dead to begin harvesting their organs for donations.These kinds of cases have happened before, as supposedly “brain dead” patients have come back to life just before having their vital organs taken from them after prematurely being declared dead. Although there is nothing morally wrong with organ donations — in fact, it’s arguably a very pro-life action to take — these kinds of stories ought to remind organ donors (and any patient and their family) that doctors are too quickly declaring patients dead...

    Scientists are keeping aborted fetal ovaries alive in order to scavenge their eggs. From the Daily News story: Scientists are ready to plunder the ovaries of aborted babies for eggs to use in IVF treatment. Experiments have taken the process almost to completion, it emerged yesterday. They raise the nightmare prospect of a child whose biological mother has never been born. The news, from a scientific conference in Madrid, was greeted with widespread revulsion at how far science is testing ethical frontiers. Experts warned of appalling emotional and biological problems. But fertility doctors say the development could ease a worldwide...

    STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. -- A fight over what was on daytime TV in an Oakwood diner ended with one man taking a bite out of a fellow patron's ear yesterday afternoon, authorities allege.

The victim, Nicholas Cacace, 35, had gotten into an argument with a woman inside over what was on television, and the woman's acquaintance, Thomas Tomasello, 52 -- a former pizzeria owner who lives on the 100 block of Park Street in Oakwood -- took...

    42.90 Euros Per Arm The German company Tutogen's business in body parts is as secretive as it is lucrative. It extracts bones from corpses in Ukraine to manufacture medical products, as part of a global market worth billions that is centered in the United States. Anatoly Korzhak, a pensioner and former engineer, died in Kiev on August 5, 2004. His body was picked up at 2 a.m. and taken to the forensic medicine institute in the Ukrainian capital. That same night, Korzhak's daughter, Lena Krat, received a telephone call and was asked to come to the institute as soon as...

    Three Philadelphia-Area Funeral Directors Nabbed in Scheme Selling Body Parts Thursday, October 04, 2007 PHILADELPHIA — Three funeral directors sold hundreds of bodies to a former oral surgeon who allegedly collected the bones, tissue and skin from the corpses to be used in transplants, a grand jury charged Thursday after a 16-month investigation. The 244 bodies fetched about $1,000 each, the grand jury found, with the body parts being transplanted in unsuspecting medical patients worldwide. Michael Mastromarino, who operated the now-defunct Biomedical Tissue Services of Fort Lee, N.J., ran the scheme with help from a team of "cutters" who stole...

    Court Ruling Could Have Chilling Effect On Organ Donations SEATTLE -- If you marked "organ donation" on your driver's license, you may have given consent for something you can't imagine. Over the past year, KIRO Team 7 Investigators have repeatedly exposed how the King County Medical Examiner’s Office traded hundreds of human brains to a research lab, collecting $1.5 million along the way. Dozens of families say King County failed to get proper consent. Four sued. Now, Investigative Reporter Chris Halsne discovers a resulting court ruling might make everyone's donated body parts up for grabs. I, along with 2.6 million...

    A leading medical firm has quietly recalled hundreds of human tissue products destined for transplants around the nation that were supplied by a North Carolina body parts broker believed to have a tainted history. The broker used an unsterile embalming room to carve up dozens of corpses to procure tissue, a Raleigh funeral home director said Tuesday. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration shut down the body broker on Friday, but refuses to say how many people may have received potentially risky tissue. It is the second scandal in less than a year in the booming tissue transplant industry. Cadaver...

    IS CHINA harvesting organs from Falun Gong practitioners -- who are killed in the process? David Kilgour, a former Canadian member of Parliament, and Canadian human rights attorney David Matas admit that they cannot prove or disprove allegations that China has killed thousands of Falun Gong practitioners in order to harvest their organs, but they fear and believe it is happening. So they wrote in a report (investigation.redirectme.net) released this month for the Coalition to Investigate the Persecution of the Falun Gong in China. China denies the allegations. An embassy spokesman reminded me that U.S. officials toured a site in...

    1010 WINS has learned that an investigation is underway into what may be the illegal harvesting of human bones from deceased victims whose families never gave consent for the bones to be removed. There are at least 30 cases involved and that number could grow. Sources say long bones from arms and legs were surreptitiously removed and replaced with pipes or broomsticks. The matter came to light after the sale of the Daniel George & Sons Funeral Home in Brooklyn. New owners Deborah Johnson and Robert Nelms found financial fraud and believed bodies were tampered with.

    The current debate about so-called partial birth abortion has produced some strange and unfortunate consequences. Among the most disheartening is the widespread impression that the pro-choice movement does not regard abortion as a serious matter, and that women seeking to terminate a pregnancy require a condescending reminder from Congress to understand that the fetus they are carrying is a potential life. Now that the debate has moved from Congress to the courts, the public could benefit from a fuller and franker discussion about abortion policy. The profound nature of the issue must be acknowledged. But it must also be made...

    The failure of footballer of George Best to refrain from drinking alcohol despite a life-saving liver transplant just 12 months ago has prompted questions about the merits of offering transplant surgery to alcoholics. Some say it is a waste of a precious and scarce resource, but others say there is no reason why people suffering from such a debilitating disease should be discriminated against. The George Best case may give the impression that people suffering from alcoholism take their place in the transplant queue like any other person with severe liver disease. In fact, this is not the case....

    The Internet auction site eBay, a favorite on-line haunt of memorabilia collectors and bargain hunters alike, is also a popular destination for United Space Alliance officials responsible for tracking down hard-to-find parts needed to keep the space shuttle in business. Designed and built in the 1970s, the U.S. space shuttle fleet relies on a host of diagnostic and ground support equip-ment powered by computer components that are no longer manufactured. NASA plans to spend about $1.5 billion over the next five years upgrading its space shuttle fleet for improved safety and operations. While most of that money is targeted toward...
