StemExpress changes website, but still is selling baby body parts

Unborn baby


It was recently brought out into the open that Planned Parenthood is engaged in harvesting and and ultimately selling human tissues from aborted babies.

One company that engages in such human trafficking, StemExpress, made some changes to its website, but still sells baby body parts:

July 18, 2015

StemExpress, a biotech company with ties to Planned Parenthood, has been surreptitiously editing its website since the release of a video shining a light on its practice of buying the remains of aborted fetuses.

Last Tuesday, the group Center for Medical Progress posted a video showing Planned Parenthood executive Deborah Nucatola going into detail about how she and other abortionists affiliated with the organization go about collecting body parts from aborted fetuses in order to turn them over for medical research. The video brought a great deal of attention to StemExpress, which was highlighted on the Center’s website as a major purchaser of aborted fetus material.

Shortly after the video broke and began getting attention, StemExpress’s website went down. … The company has made several subtle modifications to its website that are interesting, if nothing else.

Perhaps the most notable change is that the website has purged itself of all references to Institutional Review Boards, or IRBs. IRBs are empowered by the federal government to approve protocols for any research involving human subjects. A Google Cache of the site’s Partnerships page from June 30, before the video released, shows the company boasting of the “IRB approved protocols and consents” it could provide participating clinics. Now, the “IRB approved” part has been stricken out. Similarly, a line about the company offering “IRB Certified Consents” has been eliminated.

The Daily Caller News Foundation reached out to StemExpress to ask why the change was made, but a representative was not immediately available.

The other significant change the company has made regards the amount of content it has concerning fetal livers. Fetal livers are one of its five core products, and they make a very prominent appearance in the recent Planned Parenthood video. The company site has “product information sheets” for all its major products, including one for fetal livers.

The current version shows several of the options crossed out, and all of the links save one are dead, leading to no product information. This is a new state of affairs, as one can find archived versions of the old information sheets, and the cached version of the page shows no crossed-out options. None of the other products show any such changes.

Exactly why these changes were made is unclear; it doesn’t appear that StemExpress is getting out of the fetal liver game, as they are still listing them for sale.

Let me state that an IRB (Independent Review Board) is supposed to review the ethics of human trials and ensure that properly informed consent was given as well as other options.  It is not likely that mothers who aborted their children understood that their body parts may be sold.

Notice also some information about this:

July 15, 2105

On Tuesday morning, an anti-abortion group released a nine-minute hidden camera video allegedly showing a senior Planned Parenthood official discussing the illegal sale of post-abortion fetal body parts. …

In the video, Deborah Nucatola, Planned Parenthood’s senior director of medical services, discusses how the organization’s affiliates collect donations from women receiving abortions, which are then obtained by the research community. The key accusation in the video is that Planned Parenthood is breaking the law by making money off the sale of fetal body parts. “Planned Parenthood’s criminal conspiracy to make money off of aborted baby parts reaches to the very highest levels of their organization,” Daniel Daleidan, the investigation’s project lead and a former Live Action News writer, said in a statement. …

In Planned Parenthood’s first statement, released Tuesday, Ferrero said that several of Planned Parenthood’s health centers help women who want “to donate tissue for scientific research,” and that any money goes towards “actual costs, such as the cost to transport tissue.” …

But even if the legal accusations don’t hold up, Nucatola discusses how she and other providers potentially change the way they perform abortions when they have the needs of the research community in mind. “We’ve been very good at getting heart, lung, liver, because we know that, so I’m not gonna crush that part, I’m gonna basically crush below, I’m gonna crush above, and I’m gonna see if I can get it all intact,” she says in the video.

That has caused some doubts, even among people who support abortion rights. Laurie Zoloth, a professor of medical humanities and bioethics at Northwestern University, told Reuters in an e-mail that while the video was “being used to inflame people about abortion,” it was “terribly disturbing” and “an obvious conflict of interest” that Nucatola seemed concerned about meeting the needs of a company, instead of focusing solely on the safety of the patient.

Political leaders, such as Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton (to name just two) are big supporters of abortion.

Here are comments related to Barack Obama’s Adminstration on this:

Obama backs Planned Parenthood in body-parts horror

…The Center for Medical Progress, an anti-abortion group, secretly filmed a senior director of Planned Parenthood talking about the sale of body parts of aborted embryos. That director at one point indicated that it’s possible to profit from these exchanges, an act that is against the law.

It is legal to donate fetal tissue from abortions, and Planned Parenthood’s president, Cecile Richards, has defended the group’s actions as legal. She said the group doesn’t profit from these donations and that “the donation program – like any other high-quality healthcare providers’ – follows all laws and ethical guidelines.”

On Friday, White House spokesman Josh Earnest said the group’s explanation was good enough for the White House.

July 17, 2015

President Barack Obama’s top spokesman today defended the Planned Parenthood abortion business after a shocking new expose’ video caught Planned Parenthood’s top doctor describing how the abortion business sells the body parts of aborted babies.

As LifeNews reported, new undercover footage shows Planned Parenthood Federation of America’s Senior Director of Medical Services, Dr. Deborah Nucatola, describing how Planned Parenthood sells the body parts of aborted unborn children and admitting she uses partial-birth abortions to supply intact body parts.

Now, Obama spokesman Josh Ernest is defending the abortion giant, despite not having seen the video.

The idea that abortion places like Planned Parenthood follows truly biblical ‘ethical guidelines’ is absurd.  Planned Parenthood is in the baby killing business.

I would also add that I did see parts of the video and the medical doctor bragged how she was able to save parts like livers for eventual sale.  Her statements did not display biblically-appropriate ethics.

The Bible tells of a time when humans and apparently their body parts will be sold in the end times, and it does not do so in a favorable light:

10…Babylon…11 And the merchants of the earth… 12 merchandise of gold and silver, precious stones and pearls, fine linen and purple, silk and scarlet, every kind of citron wood, every kind of object of ivory, every kind of object of most precious wood, bronze, iron, and marble; 13 and cinnamon and incense, fragrant oil and frankincense, wine and oil, fine flour and wheat, cattle and sheep, horses and chariots, and bodies and souls of men. (Revelation 18:10,12-13)

13 Javan, Tubal, and Meshech were your traders. They bartered human lives and vessels of bronze for your merchandise. 14 Those from the house of Togarmah traded for your wares with horses, steeds, and mules. (Ezekiel 27:13-14)

The passages in Revelation 18 condemn Babylon and warn that Christians should have no part in it (Revelation 18:4).

The Bible itself warns about leaders in the end times:

12…O My people! Those who lead you cause you to err, And destroy the way of your paths (Isaiah 3:12).

16 For the leaders of this people cause them to err, And those who are led by them are destroyed (Isaiah 9:16)…

One of the first acts of the Barack Obama Presidency was to change an executive order to support increased abortion funding. The fact is that Barack Obama has clearly supported increased abortion access.

He has made numerous public statements supporting abortion. His U.S. Supreme Court appointees are believed to be supporters of on-demand abortion.

By encouraging and not discouraging aspects of immorality (such as abortion and homosexual unions), Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, and other are setting the U.S.A. up for punishment (Isaiah 30:12-13; Romans 1:18-32).

Abortion is wrong. And promoting or simply approving sexual immorality is wrong (cf. Romans 1:18-32).  One of the reasons that places like Planned Parenthood have support fetal-stem cell research and the selling of baby body parts is to try to claim that good comes from their wretched acts.  They are not engaged in ‘highly ethical’ behaviors related to abortion, but sin promoting ones.

There are terrible consequences for sin, and instead of properly discouraging sexual immorality, encouraging abortion increases the tendency towards sin. This does not bode well for the United States.

While Europe, China, and certain other areas also have abortion and other issues, the reality is that the Bible shows that, for a time, they will do much better than the USA. So much so, because the time is coming before their end, when the USA will be no more.
