High Time to Pass State Ban on Sale and Use of Aborted Fetal Body Parts

High Time to Pass State Ban on Sale and
Use of Aborted Fetal Body Parts

The Center for Medical Progress released an undercover video yesterday revealing that Planned Parenthood affiliates across the nation employ the partial birth abortion procedure to extract and sell intact fetal body parts. Dr. Deborah Nucatola, a UW Madison graduate and abortionist serving as senior director of medical services at Planned Parenthood since February 2009, stated that she charges $30 to $100 per specimen and that fetal livers, hearts and lungs are especially in demand. Pro-Life Wisconsin Legislative Director Matt Sande offered the following comments:

"That the abortion industry, including Planned Parenthood, profits from the sale of aborted human fetal body parts is no shock to Pro-Life Wisconsin. A 2000 fetal brain cell study conducted by Su-Chun Zhang of the UW-Madison Department of Medical Sciences used immature neural cells from fetal human brain tissue of 15-20 gestation weeks 'after elective termination of intrauterine pregnancies' to study neurological disorders. The study acknowledged former Madison abortionist Dr. Dennis Christenson for his ‘assistance in this project.'

"A 1999 fetal pancreatic tissue study conducted by D.A. MacKenzie, H.W. Sollinger, and D.A. Hullet of the UW-Madison Department of Surgery studied human fetal pancreases (HFP) as a potential source of transplantable islets for the treatment of advanced Type 1 diabetes. Human fetal pancreases between 13-20 weeks gestation were obtained 'with informed maternal consent following elective abortions at local clinics.'

"The past two legislative sessions Pro-Life Wisconsin has strongly supported legislation authored by Representative Andre Jacque that would prohibit the sale and use of aborted human fetal body parts. The legislation bans persons from knowingly and for valuable consideration acquiring, receiving, or transferring a fetal body part. It also bans persons from knowingly providing, receiving, or using for experimentation a fetal body part. We look forward to Representative Jacque reintroducing a ban on the sale and use of aborted fetal body parts and urge a concerted effort by the full legislature to finally pass it.

"The preborn aborted child did not consent to his or her abortion, and certainly did not consent to his or her experimentation. Human dignity demands that our aborted brothers and sisters receive a proper burial, not to mention their full protection as persons under the law. Federal law prohibits the interstate trafficking of human fetal body parts. Wisconsin's intrastate commercial activity must have a similar prohibition so that we can guarantee the highest ethical standards of academic research and medical care in our state."
