Sick. Skincare Company Now Using Aborted Fetal Tissue in Anti-Aging Cream

This is just gruesome.
A skincare company has started using aborted fetal tissue in its anti-aging skincare cream.
Christian News Wire reported:

Children of God for Life announced today that Neocutis, a bio-pharmaceutical company focused on dermatology and skin care is using aborted fetal cell lines to produce several of their anti-aging skin creams.

“It is absolutely deplorable that Neocutis would resort to exploiting the remains of a deliberately slaughtered baby for nothing other than pure vanity and financial gain,” stated Executive Director Debi Vinnedge. “There is simply no moral justification for this.”

For years Children of God for Life has been a watchdog on pharmaceutical companies using aborted fetal cell lines in medical products and they have received thousands of inquiries from the public on the use of aborted fetal material in cosmetics.

Until now, this was the first time they have encountered any company bold enough to put the information right on their own website and product literature. A quick investigation into the science behind the products revealed the shameless data.

Neocutis’ key ingredient known as “Processed Skin Proteins” was developed at the University of Luasanne from the skin tissue of a 14-week gestation electively-aborted male baby donated by the University Hospital in Switzerland. Subsequently, a working cell bank was established, containing several billion cultured skin cells to produce the human growth factor needed to restore aging skin. The list of products using the cell line include: Bio-Gel, Journee, Bio-Serum, Prevedem, Bio Restorative Skin Cream and Lumiere. But Vinnedge is calling for a full boycott of all Neocutis products, regardless of their source.

“There is absolutely no reason to use aborted babies for such selfish motives,” Vinnedge said. “It is anti-life, anti-woman and counter-productive as Neocutis is about to find out!”

Sure enough.
Neocutis describes their Processed Skin Cell Proteins (PCP) used in their anti-aging creams on their website:
From the website:

Through years of research, physicians discovered fetal skin has a unique ability to heal wounds without scarring. Inspired by this, medical researchers at the University Hospital of Lausanne, Switzerland created a biotechnology process to extract the rich proteins responsible for scarless wound healing from cultured fetal skin cells. A small biopsy of fetal skin was donated following a one-time medical termination and a dedicated cell bank was established for developing new skin treatments.

How awful.

    There’s a great short story by F Paul Wilson that predicts that purse companies will begin to make purses out of fetal skin and call Foetal skin. Afterall, they’re not REALLY babies. Morbid, but how long til it actually happens?

    Look, I support a woman’s right to terminate a pregnancy until she’d done paying for the fartling’s college tuition, s/he’s truly out of the house (including the basement) and the cord is cut for good… But this is a whole new level of gruesomeness, reminiscent of Elizabeth Bathory. Stem Cell research for genuine medical benefit using tissue aborted fetuses is one thing (and I’m not convinced that it’s going to amount to the cure-all that its advocates boast) but this is just sick, even if it was from a donation of a single cell. (Hell, I’d be creeped out if it was taken off an alive-and-well Cheryl Tiegs’ bottom).

    If you can find something “good” of abortion…and this must be “good”, it heals….it makes those who abort babies feel justified for what they do. Stem cell research is only there to make these people feel better about what they do, especially when adult stem cells have been the only research that has been successful. Deep within their souls they know what they are doing is wrong.

    It had to be a biopsy of living cells, isn’t that right?

    Kept the aborted kid alive long enough to harvest his cells.

    Abortion is a woman’s right.
    It says so right in the Constitution, right next to Affirmative Action and the ban on God.

    People condemed the Germans for making lampshades from the tatooed skin of murdered Jews and Gypsies, yet this product is allowed to be sold? How depraved are we? Can we possibly sink any lower?

    Just a matter of time before someone takes some cultured fetal tissue and puts it into a protein powder drink and calls it the new miracle rejuvenation drink. Could be a fantastic hit. Watch who drinks that stuff and choose your friends accordingly.

    Makes one wonder what ELSE the abortion clinics are doing with the bodies.

    No one mentions to mothers who’ve just delivered their babies that their placentas are cash commodities, either.

    Here fixed it:
    “How depraved are THEY? Can THEY possibly sink any lower?”

    Answer, yeah, they can. Alas.
    But “WE” don’t have to go along with it.

    “It had to be a biopsy of living cells, isn’t that right?”

    No. A single 4 square centimeter post-mortem donation. 14 wk gestation. Abortion and research performed independently.

    The resulting cell line primarily used to help burn victims heal.

    I’m pretty sure this is nothing new.
