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

Sick.

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:
neocutis
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?

  • Bill

    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).

  • Sherr

    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?

    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.

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

    This almost feels like a kind of cannibalism. (“Soylent Green” is right.) Isn’t this nice? Now you can look younger by rubbing dead babies all over your face.

  • Jason

    Interesting how they stress it was a one time donated “termination,” because of course it is ok if you only kill someone and then use their skin once.

  • Alejandro

    I think we’re missing the important question here: does the stuff work? I’m pretty sure the aborted fetus the skin was taken from won’t be needing it anyway.

  • Jean

  • theBuckWheat

    The fraudulent bargain we are presented with today, mostly by government is that we can live at the expense of others if only we would allow them to live at our expense.

    The next level of this collective predation will be if life-saving medical technology depends upon harvesting cells from aborted fetuses, especially when such research or treatment is funded by government.

    Not even Orwell could have imagined this.

    obviously, this in right up to and maybe over the line…if it creates a market for tissue and subsequently increases abortions, then it’s potentially a real big problem…after the cell culture is established, and the growth hormone source is productive and stable, there might not be any resultant increase in abortions…what seems more of a problem is efficacy, that is, how to get a good effect topically.

    I personally do NOT want a bunch of unwanted, uncared for children being raised by unfit mothers. Abortion makes it possible for “sinners” to still have the same chance as everyone else at a “normal” life. Not to mention saves an unwanted “accident” from a miserable upbringing. Sure there are exceptions for everything… but it, without question, should be a WOMAN’S CHOICE. Not a religous zealot’s choice.

    Yay Joe, You said it boy…. Yes, because you have “seen” the light, you can accuse every religious organization, every religious person with a spine. You are intelligent and you can obviously rationalize, you have deductive thinking and every one else is below you. What in the name of God do these people understand about raising fit children like you can. Yes, the world is absolutely clueless and you have found the “true” answers. If only these religious zealots would just understand once and for all ha?
    Have you read some books recently Joe? I would suggest that you start with the Bible. New Testament maybe?, and then some stories about some Saints’ lives. Maybe some Churchill, let me know when you’re done. I’ll suggest some more.
    Please, keep YOUR redundant and FALSE accusations to yourself.

In fact, I’m sure he would view it as the reason why God created him in the first place. Life is so over-rated, anyway. It’s good to focus on what’s important: lookin’ good and makin’ bank.

    The cells are alive. One cannot produce a “dedicated cell bank” from dead cells. And from an infant at the size of 14 weeks gestation, a “single 4 cm square” is quite the chunk of flesh.

    “Through years of research, physicians discovered fetuses have a unique ability to develop into real people.”
    All this science and technology and these over-educated creeps are worse than primitive cave men, who valued their children. The cave men couldn’t see the developing child, but these “scientists” can put a camera into the uterus and watch every minute of human growth, then colder than sharks, rip the child out and carve him up for face cream.

    There was a prostitute who was pregnant. She was told that because of her venerial desease she would have to abort the child. Besides she would not be able to care for him. The prostitute refused to abort the child. The childs name was Beethoven. I have cried over the monstrosity Obama is and his stand on abortion, but I have come to realize that God will judge in a most harsh manner these people. Do not be deceived there is a time of judgement. May God have mercy on us.

    Come on… where are all these happy singing zealots coming from? …

    There was an abortion an instead of being thrown away with the rest of biological waste, a sample was taken and given to a university to do skin research. This was probably done to help people with extreme conditions (people burnt in the hell of war, perhaps?) and as a side effect somebody noticed it could also work with relatively healthy skin…

    Do you really believe they would have fetus farms in Switzerland? for those of you who have never left the farm, people live way better over there (on average) than in the US of America. They don’t send 18 year old kids to die (and kill) in some weird country and they basically mind their own business and try to live as peaceful as they possible.

    Is it the first time researchers use corpses to learn more about ourselves?… what about medicine schools, do you seriously believe all the practice is made with rubber toys? …

    I guess you also like your steak well done and buy tshirts made by kids in China or Bangladesh… it’s so easy to judge, specially using these tubes the internet is made of…

    “Why do you notice the wood chip in the eye of someone else, but you do not consider the wooden beam in your eye?”

    and don’t even bother: I’m catholic and I have read the bible (yes, all of it… even if it was many years ago).

  • Andreas K.

    Joe, you don’t understand that not everyone here is a Christian. I’m not a Christian, nor am I conservative. But I find myself agreeing with some of the things they say. I used to be a left liberal, some time ago. Then I opened my eyes and realized that left-wing ideas are bringing my own country closer to destruction every day.

    It should be the woman’s choice? Oh please, spare me the dribble. There are medical conditions and some situations where abortion is an alternative. Yes, no doubt. But most abortions are the “OH SHIT! I’M PREGNANT!” panic button. Why should I respect that? Why should I respect people being too stupid? There are ways to prevent pregnancies in the first place. One is: not letting every idiot into your panties, girls. Just like not trying to get into the panties of everything female, boys. It starts there. Then there are condoms and other ways.

    A woman’s choice shouldn’t really be being dumb.

    Just like Josef Mengele’s “research.” Once you define a class of people as “sub-human,” you can do whatever you want with them. Got it.

    Right, Joey Lynn – I mean, look what an unfit mother did with you.

  • Did any of you ever had any doubts that that maybe one of the underlying reasons why “celebrities” support abortion and stem cells research? How do they get their dirty hands on human growth hormone to look 10-20 years younger then they are? It doesn’t grow on trees.

  • @Andres
    “Do you really believe they would have fetus farms in Switzerland?”

    Why not? This country become liberal (sorry – progressive) before many of us were born. But I have better question. Did you ever hear of CHINA? If they execute prisoners based on need for particular body organ (and blood type) why wouldn’t they have organ banks from aborted babies? Don’t forget they have forced abortion laws because the families there can only have one child. So there must be plenty of “biological waste” lying around. Don’t you love this substitution, “biological waste”, for murdered babies?

  • “Do you really believe they would have fetus farms in Switzerland?”

    From the progressive point of view, would there be any problem with that? I mean, you guys have decided that fetuses aren’t really people. So, why not grow fetuses just for organ harvesting? Is it really any worse than partial birth abortion …. I mean, to you guys without souls?

  • Jill

    Proverbs 29:2

    When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice, but when the wicked beareth rule, the people mourn.

    When our authority figures allow abortion which is murder, you can not tell me that they are not wicked. They call good evil and evil good.

  • Mary Alan

    Joe (#41) said, “I personally do NOT want a bunch of unwanted, uncared for children being raised by unfit mothers.” An estimated 2 million couples in this country would love to adopt “unwanted” babies.

    Joe said that abortion should be “a woman’s choice” — six out of every 10 mothers who abort their babies have been pressured or forced to do so (usually by the baby’s father, but often by her own parents). Murder is one of the leading causes, and sometimes the leading cause, of death for pregnant mothers. Even “safe, legal” abortions can kill women: Google “Synthia Dennard” and “Lou Ann Herron” to read about two who died at the hands of “safe, legal” abortionists.

    Joe, I believe that every mother deserves better than abortion, and that every child deserves a chance. Why don’t you?

    coeruleus is wrong, unless cell lines can be cultured from reanimated tissue a ‘la Dr. Frankenstein. Even when a person is declared dead, most of their tissues are still living.

    Such is the case with fetuses and embryos as well — they are dead the moment they are dismembered or pulled from the womb (or will be shortly thereafter — a drop onto the lab floor assures that…), but the little arms and feet etc. live on for a bit thereafter.

    It’s all in the timing — like with organ donations, you have to work fast to get the still living organs from the dead person.

    Given the timing, I’d say that the abortion and the research are closely linked.
