How does the brain of a four-month-old freshly aborted fetus acquired and delivered via FedEx to medical researchers at Temple University?
What happens once researchers receive a package, for example, containing the liver of a four-month-old male fetus and the blood of its mother, a 23-year-old Hispanic woman weighing 145 pounds?
The following 10 steps explain how a baby’s body parts and its mother’s blood make it from an abortion clinic to the hands of “medical researchers,” based on documents obtained from StemExpress. StemExpress is a fetal tissue procurement company under investigation by the House Select Investigative Panel on Infant Lives.
Step 1. RESEARCHERS ORDER FROM MENU OF BABY BODY PARTS
Researchers order fetal tissue by selecting from a detailed menu of baby body parts on StemExpress’s website. They select quantity, age of the fetus, and the preferred transport and shipping method.
The menu includes eyes, ears, tongue, brain, scalp, heart and spinal cord.
Step 2. STEM EXPRESS SENDS A LIST OF ORDERS TO ABORTION CLINICS
StemExpress processes the order and sends a list of ordered parts to technicians at various partnering abortion clinics. In promotional materials on StemExpress’S website, abortion clinics are promised a “financial benefit” if they partner with StemExpress by allowing technicians to harvest and ship baby body parts.
Step 3. TECHNICIAN DETERMINES WHICH WOMEN WILL BE ASKED FOR THEIR BABY’S BODY PARTS
A StemExpress technician reviews the list of ordered baby body parts, and consults with clinic staff to determine which women scheduled for abortions that day are carrying the type of fetus needed to supply researcher requests. Abortion clinic staff plan to approach these specifically targeted women when they come into the clinic to have an abortion.
Step 4. THE CHOSEN WOMAN DECIDES WHETHER TO CONSENT
Technicians or clinic staff approach the targeted women, asking if they’d be willing to donate their aborted fetus to medical researchers. If these women agree, they sign a consent form, which states: “I agree to donate the tissue from the abortion and/or miscarriage, and a blood sample if needed, as a bodily gift to be used for the advancement of medical science.”
Step 5. THE ABORTIONIST KILLS THE BABY; TAKING IT OUT IN PARTS
After the mother agrees to donate the remains of her baby, she is taken into a room where an abortionist pulls it out of her womb, piece by piece, and puts the remains into a container. Any leftover bits are vacuumed out of the womb to ensure the continued health of the woman. In some cases her blood is drawn for use by the researchers.
