Speaking at a hearing investigating the procurement of fetal tissue from aborted babies, Rep. Diane Black, R-Tenn., asked a panel of experts Wednesday: “Have we reached a point in our society where there effectively is an Amazon.com for human parts, including human babies?”
While asking the question, Black showed those testifying an email from a medical researcher from a “leading university” requesting “a first trimester human embryo, preferably around 8 weeks, and up to 10 weeks gestation. We have ordered tissue from [redacted] before, so our information should be on file. Please let me know if this tissue is available.”
Dr. Gerard Kevin Donovan, senior clinical scholar at the Kennedy Institute of Ethics at Georgetown University—who is against abortion and the procurement of baby body parts from aborted fetuses—responded:
“We have commoditized what have been referred to as the products of conception, meaning babies and baby parts. Yes, they are for sale, supposedly just to cover one’s costs. But those costs seem to be quite variable.”
