UMass Paid $29,000 in Public Money for Fetal Cadavers from StemExpress
A loss in court and increased public outrage over fetal parts trafficking has prompted StemExpress, to at least appear to sever its ties with Planned Parenthood and recalibrate its public profile to one that is “predominately” focused — at least outwardly — on adult blood and tissue procurement.
This news came in the same week that Operation Rescue obtained purchase orders that show the University of Massachusetts Medical School paid StemExpress a total of $29,000 for human fetal cadaverous tissue, (presumably harvested from Planned Parenthood abortions), for the purpose of creating “humanized” mice.
StemExpress is a biotech company in Placerville, California, that has been featured in video exposés released by the Center for Medical Progress, which show the company partnering with Planned Parenthood to harvest and profit from the sale of aborted baby parts.
StemExpress had earlier obtained an injunction barring the CMP from releasing an alleged recorded conversations with the company’s executives made on May 22, 2015.
However, on August 13, a judge denied StemExpress’ efforts to obtain journalistic materials from CMP, saying that it would violate the CMP’s First Amendments rights.
Friday, StemExpress issued a statement announcing that it has severed its business relationship with Planned Parenthood, claiming that it represented only “a small percentage of our overall business activity.”
