Pro-Life Activists Say They Discovered Fetuses Stored in Paper Bags at University of Washington
Washington, D.C. – A disturbing photograph released Wednesday reportedly show human fetuses stored in paper bags inside a freezer at the University of Washington Birth Defects Research Laboratory in Seattle. The photographs were taken by Progressive Anti-Abortion Uprising, Survivors of the Abortion Holocaust, Pro-Life San Francisco, and Rehumanize International.
Dr. David Prentice, vice president of research at Charlotte Lozier Institute (CLI) and an international expert on ethical stem cell research, had this reaction:
“The University of Washington serves as the Amazon for baby body parts. Harvesting baby body parts and parceling them out like parts from an old car is barbaric. Storing these organs and body parts in paper bags might be more convenient for their ‘next day’ and ‘same day’ delivery options but only emphasizes how their entire trafficking operation is out of touch with the intrinsic value and dignity of each human being.”
According to a U.S. House of Representatives investigation, the Birth Defects Research Laboratory at the University of Washington is the largest human fetal tissue repository in the United State and receives taxpayer funding through the National Institutes of Health.
Charlotte Lozier Institute was launched in 2011 as the education and research arm of Susan B. Anthony List. CLI is a hub for research and public policy analysis on some of the most pressing issues facing the United States and nations around the world. The Institute is named for a feminist physician known for her commitment to the sanctity of human life and equal career and educational opportunities for women.
