Baby Harvesting Scandal: Aborted Baby Organs are IMPLANTED INTO RATS – Grown for Transplants
On Tuesday the third undercover video of Planned Parenthood’s despicable harvesting practices was released by the Center for Medical Progress.
The latest video shows actual harvesting of aborted baby organs in a Planned Parenthood clinic.
But the controversy does not end there…
The aborted baby body parts are often implanted into rats until they grow large enough to be transplanted into a person.
It’s like something straight from a science fiction novel.
Live Science reported:
Researchers say they have developed a new technique that will get more kidneys to people who need transplants, but the method is sure to be controversial: 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.
It’s possible that further work could find a way to grow kidneys large enough that they could be transplanted into a person, the researchers said, although much more research is needed to determine whether this could be done.
“Our long-term goal is to grow human organs in animals, to end the human donor shortage,” said study co-author Eugene Gu, a medical student at Duke University and the founder and CEO of Ganogen, Inc., a biotech company in Redwood City, California…
…In addition to kidneys, the researchers have also transplanted human fetal hearts into rats, Gu said. The work is still in progress, but the researchers said it may also be possible to use the method with other organs. “This technology is applicable not just to the kidney, but to every kind of [blood-supplied] organ in the body,” Gu said.
In the short term, fetal organs grown in animals could be used to test drugs that can’t normally be tested in living humans. Ultimately, the researchers plan to transplant the kidneys into larger animals, such as pigs, where the organs could grow large enough to be transplanted back into people, Gu said.
