I am not ignoring anything. I wish no abortions happened in America. However, I do not want capital punishment to happen in America, but both abortion and capital punishment is the law of the land. Now, the doctor in the hidden video is .callous, arrogant, and flippant, but she is not incorrect. First, nobody should profit for the sale of human tissue. Most blood banks are set up as non for profit corporations, but there are charges for collection and storage of those cells necessary to operate a modern blood bank which saves human lives.
The collection of fetal material for stem cell research and life saving applications have inherent costs like a blood bank. Those costs must be recouped and yes a price is put on human fetal tissue. This price should be reflective of the collection and storage of the same for human life saving breakthroughs using various stem cell technologies........or we could collect a smaller fee to simply handle the tissue as hazardous waste. Both will require a fee, so lets just take that absurd argument out of the equation, unless it can be shown that somebody is making obscene profits which do not correspond with standards of not for profit health care providers, this is a non story.
The realities remain. Abortions are happening in America under the law. Fetal tissue is being disposed or transferred for medical research. A fee is attached to the same. I am not slightly outraged, but would rather see a debate on how we could reduce abortions and improve birth control, adoptions, and opportunities for young women to have a chance to raise their children. People will still be executed, and folks can focus on the brutality of capital punishment, but it is here to stay.
