State House Health Committee to examine Pitt’s human fetal experimentation practices at public hearing this Tuesday.
(HARRISBURG, PA) A shocking new video — released one day before a legislative hearing by the PA House Health Committee on fetal experimentation — reveals the disturbing details of research on aborted babies happening at the University of Pittsburgh that are funded with taxpayer dollars.
The video, released by the Center for Medical Progress and available to view at PittExposed.com, highlights “just three of the most recent horrifying examples of government sponsored fetal experimentation at Pitt.”
(CAUTION: Video contains graphic images)
Last year, Pitt student researchers published details on experiments where scalps and “full thickness human skin” from aborted babies (18-20 weeks gestation) were grafted onto lab rats. Pictures show human hair – from these aborted babies – being grown on the backs of these rodents. Additionally, lymphoid tissue, livers and spleens from the same aborted babies were co-engrafted into the same rodent models.
This inhumane research at Pitt is not an isolated incident. Pitt scientists have also harvested livers from fetuses delivered whole via labor induction. Pitt has also been involved in the trading and distribution of hundreds of fetal kidneys and other organs from aborted babies. Both of these practices are highlighted in the new video.
On Tuesday, May 4th, the PA House Health Committee held a hearing to discuss fetal experimentation. David Daleiden, the founder of the Center for Medical Progress whose undercover videos exposed Planned Parenthood for selling aborted baby parts, testified along with Dr. Kathi Aultman, a former abortionist, giving an inside look into the abortion industry from her firsthand experience.
An open letter at PittExposed.com is calling for an end to these awful experiments on aborted babies. “We, the undersigned, call on the University of Pittsburgh to stop all experimentation on aborted babies and the inhumane practice of grafting their skin and body parts onto rodents,” states the letter.
