Why would anyone want to collect fetal tissue, you may be asking… (By the way, this is not something only Planned Parenthood does as you’ll see below. It is perfectly normal and legal, not to mention beneficial to the field of medicine and science. Planned Parenthood has been attacked with false videos, so let’s first start with what fetal tissue (not a baby, mind you) is used for. I’ll quote from the site I’ve linked after the video:
“Researchers use fetal tissue to study and develop treatments for diseases and conditions like H.I.V., hepatitis, congenital heart defects, retinal degeneration and Parkinson’s.”
So much research has been conducted on the highly edited video this extremist anti-choice group has put out proving that it was indeed extremely edited to make it look like Planned Parenthood engaged
in the selling of baby parts. Few issues with this, though. The woman in the below video will explain it far better but I’ll just note… How can Planned Parenthood sell “baby parts” when there is no baby there? It is a potential and developing organism that could turn into an infant after 9 months. That’s it.
Women have the option (aka the right to make a CHOICE) to donate if they wish to help the science and medical professionals trying to find cures for diseases that currently have no cure. What a horrible thing to do (sarcasm noted).
Oh, and let us not forget; this group is pretty well known for falsifying videos… Why they have been taken seriously is beyond me. I’ve noticed a lot of comments by anti’s on this video because they can’t handle hearing the truth. They want these deceptive lies to fool others so they can make the world as they want it by keeping women in our so called place. That isn’t going to happen. Ever.
Still want to know more about this deception being spread around by the anti-choice movement? Here’s a quote from the article, which you can find here. Please share!
“In a statement last week, Cecile Richards, the president of the Planned Parenthood Federation of America, said that “our donation programs — like any other high-quality health care providers — follow all laws and ethical guidelines” and that “Planned Parenthood stands behind our work to help women and families donate tissue for medical research when they wish to.”
Researchers use fetal tissue to study and develop treatments for diseases and conditions like H.I.V., hepatitis, congenital heart defects, retinal degeneration and Parkinson’s.
Last year, the National Institutes of Health gave $76 million in grants for fetal tissue research. Planned Parenthood is certainly not the only collector of fetal tissue — clinics associated with universities also supply tissue for research.
The Center for Medical Progress video campaign is a dishonest attempt to make legal, voluntary and potentially lifesaving tissue donations appear nefarious and illegal. Lawmakers responding by promoting their own anti-choice agenda are rewarding deception and putting women’s health and their constitutionally protected rights at risk.”
