This is a huge story that has pretty much gone unnoticed by the media.
It turns out that the FDA is now acquiring baby parts from recent abortions for use in mice! They want to create what they call ‘humanized’ immune systems for medical research:
CNS NEWS – The U.S. Food and Drug Administration signed a new contract on July 25 to acquire “fresh” human fetal tissue to transplant into “humanized mice” so that these mice will have a functioning “human immune system,” according to information published by the FDA and the General Services Administration.
“The objective is to acquire Tissue for Humanized Mice,” said a June 13 FDA “presolicitation notice” for the contract.
The contractor, the notice said, would “provide the human fetal tissue needed to continue the ongoing research being led by FDA.
“Fresh human tissues are required,” said the notice, “for implantation into severely immune-compromised mice to create chimeric animals that have a human immune system.”
According to GSA’s federal contract database, Advanced Bioscience Resources (ABR), a non-profit organization based in the San Francisco Bay Area, was awarded this $15,900 contract, which will run through July 25, 2019.
“Fetal tissue used in research is obtained from elective abortions,” says the Congressional Research Service.
In 2016, Harvard University provided the House Energy and Commerce Committee’s Select Investigative Panel on Infant Lives with a background paper explaining that mice with human immune systems “are engineered to this condition only by means of the use of human fetal material” and that this material can only come from aborted babies not from miscarriages.

Thus, by issuing a contract to acquire human fetal tissue to use in making mice with human immune systems, the FDA is using federal tax dollars to create a demand for human body parts that must be taken from babies who are aborted.
I get the desire to come up with better testing methods in order to cure diseases and such, but to do so using ‘fresh’ baby parts from abortions is just abominable.
As CNS News points out…
Because it would not be able to create its “humanized mice” without fresh tissue taken from aborted babies, the FDA also has an interest in the continuation of legalized abortions at a stage in fetal development when the tissue needed to create these mice can be retrieved from the aborted baby.
No no no no no. This is just wrong.
It’s already horrible that the courts have allowed abortion to continue unabated in this country for decades. But then for the government to turn around and desecrate the little bodies of these murdered babies this way? This has to stop.
Pro-lifers are already denouncing this and calling on Congress to put a stop to this:
Pro-life leaders are outraged over revelations that the federal government continues to use human tissue from abortions in medical experiments, according to documents highlighted by CNS News.
“It is unconscionable that the United States government is still paying top-dollar in taxpayer money for the freshest, most high-quality dismembered baby hearts, lungs, livers, and brains,” said the Center for Medical Progress, the organization that first exposed Planned Parenthood’s organ trafficking. “HHS must provide full transparency and immediately terminate any and all such contracts, and the U.S. Department of Justice needs to do their job and hold ABR, Planned Parenthood, and those like them accountable to the law.”
“Under no circumstances should the U.S. government be contracting with baby parts dealers like ABR – who have partnered with abortion giant Planned Parenthood – or taxpayers be forced to fund such atrocities,” Susan B. Anthony List President Marjorie Dannenfelser declared. “We call on Congress to pass the Roby Amendment to stop taxpayer funding of these repugnant practices and act swiftly to ban them altogether.”
“Every part of this transaction is a tragedy. A woman is driven to abort her baby, too often by coercion or abandonment, and there in the shadows is a government contractor waiting to tear apart the baby’s body to deliver pieces in exchange for payment,” Family Research Council Senior Fellow for Legal Studies Cathy Ruse agreed. “The FDA owes the American people an explanation as to how such a contract could have been approved. Americans demand to have a more ethical government–one that does not traffic in the remains of human beings.”
