Planned Parenthood: 1 Site — $1 Million Baby Parts Contract / PP Broke Law, Lied to Women

My new op-ed is running in The Hill today: “Planned Parenthood’s illicit body parts scheme.” http://thehill.com/blogs/pundits-blog/lobbying-world/285122-planned-parenthoods-illicit-body-parts-scheme Shocking new information continues to be released about the “business relationship” between some of the biggest Planned Parenthood affiliates and the body body parts company StemExpress, which I first exposed with the release of CMP’s investigative journalism study last year. From the op-ed: Planned Parenthood Mar Monte did 18,035 abortions last year – if each abortion yielded just one “usable” “product of conception” for StemExpress, Planned Parenthood Mar Monte stood to gain nearly $1 million every year from its sale of tiny baby hearts, lungs, and brains. The facts are becoming clear–Planned Parenthood and their business partners turned pregnant women, unborn children, and their body parts into a profit center: “PROFIT” – Planned Parenthood’s Illicit Moneymaking From Baby Body Parts Planned Parenthood got caught in our videos, and now they are trying to cover it all up and silence the messenger. But the more they attack the First Amendment, resist transparency, and refuse to answer basic questions and back up their talking points about their baby body parts scandal, the more the facts speak for themselves.

In the first of two complaint letters filed with the Department of Health and Human Services, the...

    NEW! Amazing New Spinal Cord Implant Revives Legs of 4 Paralyzed Men Save a Baby’s Life, Save Two Lives with Umbilical Cord Blood Error Eventually Promotes Truth …  [Ed. While this is actually not a stem cell success, it is a regenerative success, nonetheless!] Amazing New Spinal Cord Implant Revives Legs of 4 Paralyzed Men Improvement is generally thought of in a positive light. Medical technology has improved to help people’s lives in all sorts of ways… Four men who were completely paralyzed below the waist are now able to move their legs, toes and lift up to 100 kilograms with their legs. These men are part of a group who have received electrical implants which have “reawakened” their spinal cords. New Scientist explains how the breakthrough technology works: The device – an array of electrodes – is implanted not at the point of injury, but in the still intact lumbosacral region of the spinal cord, which is the main information hub linking the brain to the lower limbs. Despite being crushed, Angeli says, the spinal cord and its associated nerve connections retain huge capacity to continue sending messages.   …     Angeli says the implant restores what in healthy people would be the resting potential of the spinal cord – the baseline electrical activity that keeps the cord alert, but which wanes through lack of use in people who are paralysed.     Once this background electrical impetus is restored artificially, the cord reawakens and can register the brain’s “intent” to move and convert this into fine movement at the motor neuron level. And by modulating the voltage...

[Ed. apparently, that makes it OK to do research on these human embryos — kill them for the sake of research rather than just killing them… Sounds rather like the rationalization used during the Nazi Regime — use them for medical research since they will be killed anyway…] The NIH director also noted that his federal agency had conducted a “very careful” review of the lines based on the conditions that were set forth in guidelines issued earlier this year and further pointed out that it was former President Bush who first approved the use of stem cell lines for federal researchers to work with....

First published online in STEM CELLS EXPRESS  September 11, 2008. A completed pregnancy at a young age reduces a woman's lifetime risk of breast cancer by up to 50%. A similar protective effect of an early pregnancy has been observed in rodent models using chemical carcinogens. However, the mechanisms responsible for this protective effect remain unclear. Stem cells have been proposed to be the cells of origin for breast cancer. We hypothesized that an early pregnancy reduces adult levels of either mammary stem cells or mammary multipotent progenitor cells. Unsorted mammary cells from adult mice that had undergone an early parity had the same mammosphere formation efficiency as cells from age-matched virgin mice. However, when we transplanted adult mammary cells in limiting dilutions into cleared fat pads of syngeneic mice, we...
