Indiana University Paid $200 for Brains of Aborted Babies

November 15, 2016

Pro-life Community is Calling on the School’s Board of Trustees to Stop Unethical Research on Aborted Babies

 

BLOOMINGTON, IND. – Indiana University is suing the state of Indiana in order to continue experiments using parts from aborted babies, including the brains of aborted babies purchased for $200 each. Indiana Right to Life has confirmed Indiana University purchased brains from the Department of Pediatrics at the University of Washington.

Indiana University is suing over a portion of the 2016 Dignity for the Unborn law, which prohibits the transfer and sale of aborted baby parts. Indiana University claims in its lawsuit that the law will jeopardize research.

Indiana Right to Life opposes using aborted baby body parts for research, citing this practice as unethical and unnecessary. Scientists are working on cures for diseases with ethical avenues like adults stem cells and umbilical cord blood.

“Each aborted baby’s brain being dissected by Indiana University researchers belonged to a little boy or girl,” said Mike Fichter, President and CEO of Indiana Right to Life. “We’re sickened that a price tag of $200 was put on the brain of a deceased child whose life was ended in the barbaric practice of abortion. We urge the Indiana University Board of Trustees to step up and put a stop to the experiments on aborted babies.”

Indiana Right to Life is sponsoring a petition to the Indiana University Board of Trustees that calls for an end to the experiments on aborted babied. All Hoosiers, especially Indiana University alumni, are encouraged to sign on at http://p2a.co/WJeP8zB.
