University of Pittsburgh Admits Knowledge of Unspeakable Abortion Practices
Washington, D.C.: Judicial Watch and the Center for Medical Progress uncovered documents that show the University of Pittsburgh has received at least $2.7 million (and counting) in federal grants to operate as a “tissue hub” for aborted baby body parts, but documents reveal far more grotesque information than tax dollar funded abortions.
“The university’s grant application to National Institutes of Health (NIH) reveals sickening and evil practices,” said Ed Martin, president of Phyllis Schlafly Eagles. “In order to ensure what the grant application calls ‘rapid access to very high quality tissue,’ the University of Pittsburgh bragged about so-called ‘labor-induction’ abortions, which is exactly what you think it is. Abortionists induce labor so the preterm baby can be delivered while the heart is still beating and the organs can be harvested before optimum blood flow is lost.”
Martin continued, “This information is vile and evil. It ought to turn the stomach of anyone who reads it. U Pitt and Planned Parenthood are quite literally delivering children and killing them by cutting out their kidneys.”
The University of Pittsburgh grant masks these practices behind the term “ischemic time,” a phrase that refers to the time after blood supply is lost to a part of the body. What this means is organs are still receiving blood supply from the baby’s heartbeat during “tissue collection.”
“This information,” concluded Martin, “on the heels of a report last fall that U Pitt researchers were grafting aborted baby parts onto rodents for experiments absolutely must bring public outcry. This is a public university using tax dollars from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services to kill children by harvesting their parts for research. You should be sickened and outraged, and we have to do something about it.”
ACTION: Call the university and demand this “research” be shut down. Call HHS and demand this grant be cut off. Call your representatives and demand they exercise oversight over your money that’s going to depraved and immoral research.
