In a recent interview with the Family Research Council, Pennsylvania Family Institute’s Director of Communications, Dan Bartkowiak, shared the horrific practices going on at the University of Pittsburgh and new developments that point to possible criminal activity.
“Pitt may be doing illegal activity by babies being born alive and then harvested for organs [while still alive]…We’re talking about things Kermit Gosnell is in prison for: babies born alive and then killed. That’s potentially what is happening at Pitt. The need for more information is critical.
“We have a governor and attorney general that are in the hands of Planned Parenthood. There are staff at Planned Parenthood that are employed at the University of Pittsburgh. Yet we need more information. There was a [PA House Health Committee] hearing several weeks ago that was trying to find out more information. Pitt sent someone that was not even involved in their experimentation process on aborted babies….We need answers right now.”
Several doctors have responded to statements made by Pitt, particularly about “ischemia time” – blood flow to parts of the body – which the University describes as the period after the tissue collection procedure. “If it says ischemia time starts after tissue collection, that means that the baby is still alive at the time that they’re harvesting the tissue,” says Dr. Christina Francis, a board-certified OB-GYN from the state of Indiana. “It’s horrific and does not constitute good science or compassionate medical care.” Dr. Ronna Jurow, a pro-choice OB-GYN, reports that “there’s no question” the baby would be alive during the collection procedure.
A full investigation is needed into these potential illegal criminal activity at the University of Pittsburgh, where millions of taxpayer dollars are funding experiments like grafting the scalps of aborted babies onto lab rats. This is in addition to the reports of “tissue collection” while babies are still alive.
“If the killing of babies after they are born alive from an abortion procedure is such a heinous and illegal crime – which it absolutely is – why are we not investigating the University of Pittsburgh when evidence has surfaced showing they may be killing aborted babies that are born alive as well?” – Dan Bartkowiak
