|You may be wondering what happened to the baby that
your ex didn't want you to be the father of and that she aborted. Perhaps you worry
about the child you are carrying that you wish to have aborted or that your boyfriend,
husband or relatives and friends pressure you to have aborted. The Alberta
Report published an article reporting on an inside look at how the abortion
industry operates a lucrative, rapidly growing trade in tissues from aborted
children. It was the cover
story of the August 23, 1999 issue.
The article describes the
"Secrets of the Dead-Baby Industry" and, from eye-witness accounts, that aborted
fetuses are being dissected alive, harvested and sold in pieces to fuel a vast research
enterprise. The results of "failed abortions" don't stymie the ghouls who
profit from and run this industry. If the "aborted" babies are still alive
when they see the light of the operating theater, they will be drowned, stabbed, beaten to
death with tongs, or perhaps simply left to die before they are rendered.
A side bar
(p. 34) to the Alberta Report's
cover story describes in detail the brochure of one of the fetal-tissue traders,
Opening Lines, A Division of Consultative and Diagnostic Pathology, Inc.. The side
bar article wasn't contained in the Internet edition of the Alberta Report. Here are
some details from the side bar.
The cadaver of a single aborted fetus isn't worth very much if sold whole ($600 if more
than eight weeks old) but worth thousands if rendered into various components, of which
the brain commands the highest price, $999 (30% discount if significantly fragmented), and
with the skin of an aborted baby of more than 12 weeks gestation bringing in a mere $100,
and a single eye no more than $50.
The brochure invites abortionists to "find out how you can turn your patient's
decision into something wonderful."

their prices, with the prices ranging from $50 to $999, with an intact embryonic cadaver
selling for $600 and gonads selling for $550. The font size is too small to permit
successful scanning, but if you are interested, you may want to write to Opening Lines for
a copy of the brochure. WHS]
Opening Lines is one of two such organizations that were discovered by Mark Crutcher of
Life Dynamics Inc.. The other is the Anatomic Gift Foundation, founded in 1994 by
Jim and Brenda Bardsley, who have since opened branch offices in Phoenix, Arizona and
Aurora, Colorado. The article states that the quoted prices may seem low, but that
if the prices for all of the parts are added up that the parts of a single aborted baby
are worth thousands.
The Opening Lines brochure states that "Our daily average case volume exceeds
1,500 and we serve clinics across the United States." Dr. Jones is said to be
an aggressive salesman who is "eager to offer reduced rates for bulk orders. He
also said in a recent taped interview that he is actively pursuing fetal tissue sources in
Mexico and Canada."

A Most Unsavory
When the circus made its traditional stop in Denver recently, the usual
array of activists for the legal and social rights of animals predictably turned out to
wring their good-natured hands over the fact that animals are obliged to perform for the
pleasure of man.
Their whiny proclamations of outrage were heard on one talk show after another. But
I've come to see their agitation as silly, or at least definitely low on the totem-pole of
importance, in light of a real outrage -- the buying and selling of body parts collected
from the remains of aborted infants.
Yes, you read that correctly. . . .
It's cannibalism, no doubt!
Mark Crutcher states that about 40 million unborn children are aborted world-wide each
year. Accurate statistics for that are of course hard to come by, but the 40 million
figure appears to be a conservative estimate. If the North American abortion rates are extrapolated to
the whole world, the figure comes to 32 million abortions per year. Going by
information provided on abortions in Webster's Interactive Encyclopedia, it can be
calculated that there are 55 millions abortions, worldwide, per year. That can't be
too far out. After all, the World Bank, the UN, and the International Planned
Parenthood Federation, all promote and generously fund abortion policies, specifically in
the underdeveloped nations, and most actively in the countries whose inhabitants have the
darkest colour of their skin.
It shouldn't be too hard to expand the fetal tissue trade into one of the most
profitable enterprises on Earth, should it? The opportunities boggle the mind.
Although the research market would no doubt become saturated in a very short time, there's
always the possibility of rendering the cadavers of our unborn children into various
ointments, such as rejuvenating skin cremes, or using them as a source of a large variety
of medical products, such as bio-engineered organ transplants, skin grafts, etc..
The possibilities are endless. I would guess that the market potential in the trade
of fetuses alone must be in the order of about $40 billion per year, with the secondary
industries perhaps increasing the value of fetuses by a factor of ten.
The beauty of the idea is that there doesn't need to be any waste. Whatever
remnants of an unborn child remain could easily be converted into various food or health
products. There is nothing preventing us from partaking of fetuses by mouth, in
products that can be had over the counter, so to speak, instead of having the medical
industry giving them to us in the form of injections or elaborate organ transplants.
Most of us don't agree with any of that, of course, but that doesn't mean it won't
happen or that it doesn't happen already. We've come almost all of the way.
It's only one more small step. More correctly, it is only a matter of scale.
It can be done. It is not being prohibited. It is being done already,
therefore it will grow into a large-scale practice.
And we worry about human rights violations and equitable justice? If we have no
compunction about violating life itself, human life in its most vulnerable
state, in what used to be the safest place in the life cycle of humans, what
hope do any human rights have to survive?
