Not science fiction: Aborted human fetuses harvested to grow kidney organs in rats for transplantation into human patients

Mike Adams — Natural News Jan 26, 2015

Human fetal kidneys harvested from aborted babies are being surgically implanted into adult rats to grow new kidneys to be transplanted into awaiting human adults.

This procedure, which is under rapid development, is being framed as a medical breakthrough by scientists who appear to be completely blind to the moral and ethical issues at stake in such a scheme.

“[This] is definitely the first time an actual whole human organ has been grown in an animal, and has sustained the life of that animal,” explains Eugene Gu, the founder and CEO of Ganogen, Inc. in Redwood, Calif. “Our long-term goal is to grow human organs in animals, to end the human donor shortage.” [1]

LiveScience.com reports, “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.”

Study results have been published in the Jan. 22 issue of the American Journal of Transplantation.

The ethics question

To its credit, Live Science directly addresses the moral issues surrounding this technology, even offering quotes from a bioethicist who says the practice won’t be tolerated. As reported on the website:

Arthur Caplan, a bioethicist at NYU Langone Medical Center, said the study itself did not concern him. However, “there is no way we’re ever going to use fetal human kidneys or any other solid organs for transplant,” Caplan said. “American society is morally uncomfortable enough about abortion that growing organs from fetal remains will never be accepted, and will be banned in state after state.”

The researchers said they hope Caplan is wrong…

The Ganogen.com website does not appear to contain any ethics statement defining any limitations on how the developed technology might be used. It appears to company has likely not considered the ethical implications of its research. While there’s no doubt the founders of the company have entered this realm with the best of intentions, they appear to be young, brilliant and naive, wholly unaware of what the roads to Hell are paved with.

Here’s a picture, also from the Ganogen.com website, showing some of the organs they’ve managed to grow from kidney tissue harvested from aborted human babies:

Abortion farms and organ factories

Western medicine today is dominated by the attitude of “heroic interventionism” lead by “medical mechanics” who celebrate each other’s abilities to grow, harvest and transplant organs across an ever-expanding list of animal and human subjects.

But just because you can achieve such transplantation results doesn’t mean you should. In the same way, yes you can genetically engineer food crops to combine insect genes with plant genes and release them into the wild, but it’s probably not very wise to do so due to the very real possibility of self-replicating genetic pollution.

What happens if this new fetal tissue organ harvesting procedure becomes so successful that millions of customers line up to buy the new organs? You’d very quickly see for-profit medical corporations setting up fetal abortion farms to harvest their organs for the “organ factory.”

Young women would be paid (or kidnapped) to get pregnant and have their unborn babies harvested for the organ tissue. Actually, this step is practically happening today as companies like Stem Express in Placerville, California, already sell aborted human fetal tissue for “medical research.”

In Nigeria, a baby farm was already in operation where teenage girls were kidnapped and forced to be impregnated against their will, only to give birth and have their children stolen away for human trafficking profits. “Thirty-two pregnant girls were rescued from a maternity home run by a trafficking ring in the southern city of Aba,” reports The Guardian. [2] “The girls, mostly of school age, were allegedly locked up at the Cross Foundation clinic so they could produce babies to be sold for illegal adoption or for use in ritual witchcraft.”

U.S. corporations could then purchase the harvested aborted fetal tissue from such “baby factories” being run in other countries, then they’d bring the fetal tissue to U.S. facilities where large numbers of rats (which are mammals) are subjected to the torturous procedure of having their bodies cut open and implanted with the harvested human fetal organ cells in order to grow human kidneys.

Once the kidneys grow to a suitable size, the rats would obviously be killed to harvest those organs, which would then be transported to hospitals to be surgically transplanted into humans for profit. The mainstream media would dutifully celebrate the “lifesaving medical breakthrough” and describe the mad scientists as heroes for humanity.

The medical Matrix: turning a human baby into a profit center for medical corporations

If there’s money to be made from harvesting the organs of aborted babies, make no mistake that there are corporations more than willing to profit from the blood money.

Even today, western medicine does not consider a human baby to be “alive” until after it is born… even though an unborn child shows every sign of life that would normally be considered “alive” in a rigorous scientific context. The unborn baby shown a heartbeat, brain activity, cellular growth, nutrient metabolism, waste elimination, muscular movement and even demonstrates emotions and reactions to stimuli. Clearly an unborn baby is alive. This not deniable except by those who are intentionally dishonest.

But thanks to a medical system that can abandon all ethics and declare an unborn baby to be something less than a living human being, there’s nothing stopping biotechnology corporations from harvesting aborted human babies for profit.

And because there’s no moral boundary against doing this with one baby, there’s also no moral boundary against doing this with millions of babies in an “abortion farm” organ harvesting operation carried by a public company with its own stock symbol on Wall Street. Who knows, maybe your favorite retirement mutual fund will buy some shares, too, because all that matters are the earnings per share, right?

Here’s a picture of a modern-day chicken meat factory. Replace the chickens with human babies and you begin to get an idea of the future where medical science operates without human ethics:
