If you pay federal taxes, you have been funding the creation of "humanized mice" implanted with tissues taken from aborted babies.
Publicly available medical journals, written in the technical language of specialized researchers, describe experiments and projects the National Institutes of Health has funded over the years to create and use these mice.
On Sept. 24, 2007, for example, the National Institutes of Health sponsored "The New Humanized Rodent Model Workshop." AIDS Research and Therapy published a summary of it in its journal.
One federally funded scientist attending it described the "SCID-hu Thy/Liv mouse model." A chart in the summary indicated this mouse was constructed with "(h)uman fetal liver and thymus (20-24 g.w.)." In other words, it was "humanized" with organs taken from babies five to six months after conception.
"A single donor (one baby) provides sufficient tissue to implant 50-60 mice," said the summary.
Seven years later, NIH employees described how they created a more advanced "humanized mouse." They called this one the "TKO-BLT."
"Triple Knock Out (TKO) mice that are bone marrow, liver, thymus (BLT)-humanized become highly reconstituted with human immune cells and tissues," said an article published by the NIH employees in May 2014 in the Journal of Immunological Methods.
In creating this mouse, the NIH used organs from babies in a slightly younger age range than those whose organs were used for the SCID-hu Thy/Liv model described at the 2007 NIH workshop.
"Seventeen to 22 week gestational tissues...were prepared in a biological safety hood by cutting the tissues into 1-2mm? pieces and placing them in a covered petri dish on ice in matrigel," said the Journal of Immunological Methods article.
"The tissues were divided to give the surgeons approximately the same amount of liver tissue as thymus," it said.
"Tissue was transplanted under a single kidney for each animal," it said.
At the end of last year, the Select Investigative Panel on Infant Lives published its report looking into the harvesting of fetal tissues at abortion clinics. The report discussed the "humanized mouse."
"In the most extreme example of this research model," said the report, "human fetal progenitors from blood, liver, and thymus are used to create a 'BLT' mouse that reconstitutes many aspects of the immature human immune system."
Rep. Jan Schakowsky of Illinois, the ranking member of the committee, sent letters to various institutions asking them questions about the "benefits" of fetal tissue research.
Harvard University responded with a background paper that, among other things, explained why fetal tissue research used tissue from aborted babies rather than from miscarriages.
"If human fetal tissue is needed, why can it not be obtained from miscarriages instead of abortion?" the Harvard backgrounder asked.
"Here," it said, "timing is very important.
"Almost all miscarriages happen at home or in locations in which fetal material is not recovered and, importantly, preserved in a usable state," the Harvard backgrounder said. "Just as obtaining tissue during a scheduled surgery or an in-hospital autopsy soon after death provides tissue that is untainted by decay relative to obtaining those same tissues from the morgue or a funeral home, obtaining fetal material from elective pregnancy termination is far superior to obtaining whatever material might be recoverable following spontaneous miscarriage, even assuming a mechanism existed for the collection of such material."
According to an online chart published by NIH that estimates its spending by "various research, condition, and disease categories," the agency spent $67 million on human fetal tissue research in fiscal 2013; $76 million in fiscal 2014; $80 million in fiscal 2015; $103 million in fiscal 2016; and $107 million in fiscal 2017. (The chart does not indicate how much went to research involving the humanized mouse as opposed to other types of research using fetal tissue.)
The fundamental issue is plain: By spending tax dollars on research that requires tissue taken from aborted babies, the federal government is creating a demand for tissue from aborted babies.
The best policy would be to prohibit the killing of unborn babies -- a solution that would require at least one more Supreme Court justice who does not believe killing an unborn child is a constitutional right.
The initial omnibus appropriations bill for fiscal 2018 that the House passed in September -- but that never got a vote in the Senate -- included the next best policy. It said: "None of the funds made available by this Act may be used to conduct or support research using human fetal tissue if such tissue is obtained pursuant to an induced abortion."
The question now: In the ultimate appropriations bill it passes for fiscal 2018, will the Republican Congress fund research that creates a demand for tissue from aborted babies? Or will they end it?
Anybody surprised? They kill babies and sell the bodies, so is anything surprising after that?
The plunge of this Republic into the abyss continues.
I didn’t see the term “monoclonal antibodies” in this article, but they too are the product of human and mouse tissue combination.
“monoclonal antibodies” have been used as one of many of the varieties of chemotherapy.
I had explored it 11 years ago as a preferred option, based upon my “google-doc” research.
I was upset when my doc nixed the option, but later learned he was more informed than I with my “google-doc” research.....(imagine that)
Turns out I likely would have had a severe allergic reaction to the mouse component.
I had no indication that the human element was a product of fetal tissue, but it now seems that is likely the case.
We, the people, have been funding chimeras, unethical research and bio-weaponized viruses and plagues, weaponized flu and vaccines, and experiments on cut up babies for at least 50 years. People, especially our babies, have been guinea pigs for 50 years, now, and they are the sickest, most mentally and physically damaged children in our history. As Michael Crichton revealed in his book “Next”, chimeras are happening, whether we know it or not—it is what unethical people will ALWAYS do. He revealed the “Global Warming hoax in his prior “fiction—ha ha” book (as so well explained in his encounter with the evil Charlie Rose (who was worshipped at that time, considered so “brilliant” by many except the “awakened” who knew he is a controlled agent of the psychopathic NWO cabal to usher in the NWO). M.C. was eliminated before the sequel of “Next” could be written, though, by cancer (lol) since MC finally “woke up” to the lies of the controlling elite. He saw how science and reason didn’t matter to Charlie Rose or the controllers so he had to go, since he had a large platform like Kubrick (who was eliminated also for revealing too much to the masses). Science labs don’t care about “ethics”, never have. Power of such magnitude will ALWAYS corrupt and kill.
The system we put in after WWII and our “research centers” were dominated by the SS Nazis—their scientists were put in charge here, and with it their so-called “ethics”.
We need to return to the Constitution which was totally removed along with “Justice” (our ethics system) which has been a Vice System since WWII and since the evil, bribed Pres. Wilson who removed our Constitution with the “income tax act” and established the “Federal Reserve”, which is neither, so they could set up a “System” where they would have the funding and complete control over the money and all the “research” and the major “universities”, and all our “news” (information for mind control and placating the masses).
They could get away with murder (literally) because of the System, and take over for their eventual NWO and experiment on our babies, which hasn’t stopped since WWII and Operation Paperclip. Kinsey wrote his books based on the experiments of the Nazis “doctors” and homosexuals who were raping and torturing babies—and that is where our “Sex Ed” programming in schools comes from—the Kinsey Institute. Just another evil psychopathic sodomite who controls the programming of our children, who had orgies with the children like John Maynard Keynes another Fabian and NWO stooge, who wanted the destruction of marriage (male/female) and the Natural Family, so they put in curricula, a “program” to hyper-sexualize children, that will destroy virtue formation in young children, which, of course, will collapse civil societies and the Natural family, as even Aristotle knew it would.
We have to take back the raising of our children, their minds, and embed virtue (Christianity) and common sense (reality/Natural laws) and defund our corrupt, evil government. It is the only way to return to civil society.
