***********************************************************

A. THE NATURE OF AND TRADITIONAL TREATMENT FOR PARKINSON’S DISEASE:

Carleson, in “Physiology of Behavior” (8th edition) describes the cause of Parkinson’s disease and its current standard drug treatment as follows (page 117):

“Degeneration of dopamiergic neurons that connect the substantia nigra with the caudate nucleus causes Parkinson’s disease, a movement disorder characterized by tremors, rigidity of the limbs, poor balance, and a difficulty in initiating movements. The cell bodies of these neurons are located in a region of the brain called the substantia nigra…” (1)

“People with Parkinson’s disease are given L-DOPA, the precursor to dopamine. Although dopamine cannot cross the blood-brain-barrier, L-DOPA can. Once L-DOPA reaches the brain, it is taken up by dopaminergic neurons in patients with Parkinson’s disease. As a consequence, the patient’s symptoms are alleviated.” (1)

The same source notes the complications of and limitations of treating Parkinson’s disease with L-DOPA (page 265):

However, treatment of Parkinson’s disease with L-DOPA “often produces dyskinesias and dystonias - involuntary movements and postures that are presumably caused by too much stimulation of dopamine receptors in the basal ganglia… In addition, L-DOPA does not work indefinitely; eventually, the number of nigrostriatal dopaminergic neurons declines to such a low level that the symptoms become worse. Some patients… even become bedridden, scarcely able to move.” (1)

***********************************************************

B. HARVESTED FETAL BRAIN TISSUE TRANSPLANTS FOR PARKINSON’S DISEASE:

Carlson in the same “Physiology of Behavior” then reports briefly on one possibly promising long term treatment for Parkinson’s disease involving the injection of harvested fetal brain tissue into the brains of patients with Parkinson’s disease (page 265):

“…Transplantation of fetal tissue attempts to reestablish the secretion of dopamine in the neostriatum. The tissue is obtained from the substantia nigra of aborted human fetuses and implanted into the caudate nucleus and putamen by means of stereotaxically guided needles…. Scans have shown that dopaminergic fetal cells are able to grow in their new host and secrete dopamine, reducing the patient’s symptoms. “ (1)

***********************************************************

C. WHAT THIS PAPER WILL EXAMINE

The therapy of implanting harvested post abortion fetal brain tissue into the brains of Parkinson’s disease patients raises interesting questions that are not covered by Carlson in his “Physiology of Behavior” textbook. The Text takes one from a 28 day old human embryo as a “neural tube” to a living and thriving post birth human infant while remaining curiously silent on the intervening in utero period. (1) What are the biopsychological milestones of human fetal development? What are the different types of abortion procedures? How does the human fetus respond to abortion? What is the nature of fetal harvesting? This paper will attempt to address these questions.

E. SELECTED METHODS OF ABORTION:

“Abortion is the medically induced, premature death of a pre-born baby in the womb.” (14) Abortion may be accomplished by any one or combination of methods:
___________________________________________________________

SUCTION (VACUUM ASPIRATION) ABORTION

The cervix is stretched to allow passage of a hollow suction tube into the pregnant uterus, which has sharp-edged openings near its tip. Powerful suction force is then applied, allowing the fetus to be ripped apart into pieces that are then suctioned out of the uterus into a collection container. The placenta is then suctioned out from the uterus. In post-12 weeks pregnancy terminations, supplemental instruments are often required to crush and remove fetal parts that are too large to be evacuated by suction. Most 1st trimester abortions in North America and the United Kingdom are done in this manner. (15,16,17)

PICTURE/LINK:

___________________________________________________________

DILATATION and CURETTAGE (D and C) ABORTION

A surgical procedure that can serve to abort a 1st trimester fetus. The cervix is dilated and a curette - a sharp loop-bladed knife - is inserted into the pregnant uterus in order to cut the fetus and placenta into pieces. The dismembered fetal parts and related tissue are then scraped out of the womb into a basin. The fetal remains must then be accounted for to assure all relevant tissues have been removed from the mother. This technique is often associated with significant maternal bleeding. (18,16,17)

___________________________________________________________

SALT POISONING ABORTION

Used after 16 weeks, this technique is no longer used commonly in western nations, but is employed often in third world nations because of its cost effectiveness and ease of administration. A syringe of a concentrated salt solution is injected into the amniotic fluid via a long needle through the mother’s abdomen. The fetus then breathes and swallows the hyper-salted amniotic fluid. The fetus struggles and sometimes seizes until dead within usually one hour. The mother typically then delivers a dead fetus within one to two days. The complication of fetal survival upon delivery is not uncommon. The fetal skin upon delivery, having been chemically burned away by the hyper-salted amniotic fluid, usually presents as a glazed red surface. This abortion procedure was first developed in Nazi concentration camps during World War II. (21,16,17)

___________________________________________________________

HYSTEROTOMY ABORTION

Used for late term abortions in rare instances. Identical to a Caesarian Section delivery used to deliver a live baby in the presence of certain pregnancy/fetal complications, except the object here is to deliver a dead fetus. A low abdominal incision is made into the pregnant uterus. If the fetus is alive, the complication of delivering a live baby is to be avoided. The live fetus is first terminated while still in the mother’s womb, such as by cutting of the umbilical cord. Once the fetus is dead, the fetus is then physically lifted out of the mother’s womb and the abortion is completed. (22,16)

___________________________________________________________

DILATION and EXTRACTION (D and X); aka PARTIAL BIRTH ABORTION

Used in well developed 2nd and 3rd trimester pregnancies. The cervix is dilated over a period of time. The fetus is located via ultrasound, which serves to guide the entrance of forceps into the mother’s womb. A foot is grasped and the fetus is placed into a face-down breech (feet first) delivery position. The fetus is then pulled out of the uterus, but keeping the head still inside the mother’s cervix. Surgical scissors are then inserted into the skull at the back of the neck and an opening is thus enlarged to allow placement of a large-bore suction catheter attached to high powered suction. The fetal brain is then suctioned out of the fetal cranial vault. The fetus is now dead and the delivery is completed. (19,20,16,21,17)

___________________________________________________________

RU-486 ABORTION

An early pregnancy abortion inducing drug containing Methotrexate taken after the mother misses her period. The drug blocks the use of an essential substance by a newly implanted fetus, causing fetal death and then separation from the uterine wall. The dead fetus and associated tissues are then passed vaginally by the mother. No longer able to induce abortion after six to eight weeks of pregnancy. (16)
___________________________________________________________

DILATATION & EVACUATION (D and E) ABORTION

Used for 2nd trimester abortions, at which point in fetal development the fetal bones become calcified. A pliers-like instrument is inserted through the dilated cervix into the pregnant uterus. Fetal body parts are grasped and twisted off from the fetal body one at a time and removed from the uterus. It may be necessary to snap the fetal spine and crush the fetal skull to remove them through the dilated cervix. Fetal body parts must be “reassembled” to assure that all fetal tissue has been removed from the mother’s womb. (16,17)
___________________________________________________________

PROSTOGLANDIN ABORTION

Used to abort mid and later term pregnancies. The hormone prostoglandin is administered to the pregnant mother, such as via injection into the amniotic fluid and vaginal suppositories. The hormone induces violent premature labor contractions, thus expelling the fetus. The fetus usually dies in the process of delivery, but the complication of live fetal birth is not uncommon. To avoid this complication, drugs lethal to the fetus are often injected into the amniotic fluid, thus assuring fetal death before delivery. (23,16,17)
___________________________________________________________

INDUCED LABOUR ABORTION ( aka LIVE BIRTH ABORTION)

Premature delivery of a commonly midterm fetus is induced via various means, the objective being to deliver a premature baby that is not capable of surviving outside the uterus. When such abortions typically produce the complication of live birth, the now delivered living baby is provided only “comfort care“ - wrapping the infant in a blanket - and denied all medical and nursing care. Such infants can linger for hours before dying of “natural causes.” (24)

***********************************************************

F. SELECTED FETAL RESPONSES TO ABORTION:

A 12-WEEK FETUS REACTS TO A SUCTION ABORTION

Dr. Bernard Nathan son - a former abortionist - narrates the video, “The Silent Scream:” a real time fetal ultrasound video of a live 12-week fetus undergoing a suction abortion:

Part 6 “The clip begins with an ultrasound of the fetus (girl) who is about to be aborted. The girl is moving in the womb; …and is at times sucking her thumb. As the abortionist’s suction tip begins to invade the womb, the child rears and moves violently in an attempt to avoid the instrument. Her mouth is visibly open…” (25)

Part 7 “The child’s heart rate speeds up dramatically…[as the suction catheter makes contact with the fetus]. She moves violently away in an]…attempt to escape the instrument….” (25)

In an article in the London Telegraph on 8/28/2000 titled “British Medical Experts Say Unborn Children Feel Pain During Abortion,” Dr. and Mrs. J. C. Wilke, comment on the abortion video “The Silent Scream” [above]:

“…What of The Silent Scream? A Real-time ultrasound video tape and movie of a 12- week suction abortion is commercially available as, The Silent Scream, narrated by Dr. B. Nathanson, a former abortionist. It dramatically, but factually, shows the pre-born baby dodging the suction instrument time after time, while its heartbeat doubles in rate. When finally caught, its body being dismembered, the baby’s mouth clearly opens wide — hence, the title…” (26)
___________________________________________________________

21-23 WEEK GESTATION BABIES UNDERGOING “LIVE BIRTH ABORTION”

Nurse Jill Stanek, RN on 7/20/2000, in testimony before a US House of Representatives committee hearing on HR4292 - the “Born Alive Infant Protection Act of 2000” - reported the following regarding live birth abortion infants at a “Christ Hospital” - where she was employed as a Nurse in the labor & delivery ward:

“The method of abortion that Christ Hospital uses is called "induced labor abortion," also now known as "live birth abortion."… It is not uncommon for one of these live aborted babies to linger for an hour or two or even longer. One of them once lived for almost eight hours. In the event that a baby is aborted alive, he or she receives no medical assessments or care but is only given what my hospital calls "comfort care." "Comfort care" is defined as keeping the baby warm in a blanket until he or she dies.” (24)

“One night, a nursing co-worker was taking an aborted Down's Syndrome baby who was born alive… I cradled and rocked him for the 45 minutes that he lived. He was 21 to 22 weeks old. He was too weak to move very much, expending any energy he had trying to breathe…” (24)

Nurse Stanek further testified to the US House committee:

“…a patient who was 23+ weeks pregnant, and it did not look as if her baby would be able to continue to live inside of her… But the patient chose to abort. The baby was born alive… After delivery the baby, who showed early signs of thriving, was merely wrapped in a blanket and kept in the Labor and Delivery Department until she died 2-1/2 hours later.” (24)
___________________________________________________________

ABORTED FETUS CASES DELIVERED ALIVE TO A FETAL HARVESTING LAB TECHNICIAN BY ABORTION DOCTORS

A 2/2000 article in Coral Ridge Ministries’ Impact Newsletter titled “Industry for Baby Body Parts Uncovered,” reveals that aborted fetus cases born alive are terminated by abortion doctors by various means just prior to delivery to fetal harvesting labs on the premises of abortion clinics:

“This Frankensteinian saga surfaced when "Kelly," a fetal parts worker, told her story in 1997 to Life Dynamics, a Texas pro-life group. After a two-year undercover investigation, Life Dynamics went public last year with her first-hand account, documented by copies of orders for baby body parts sent to Planned Parenthood abortion clinics.” (27)

“…she tells how an abortionist presented her with 24-week-old twins in a bucket. "Got you some good specimens – twins," he announced as the infants, Kelly recalls, were "still moving and gasping for air." When Kelly refused to end the babies' lives, the doctor obliged her by drowning them in sterile water. (27)

“That was not the only live birth Kelly witnessed. She claimed that in numerous instances unborn children between 16 and 30 weeks old were killed outside the womb when a doctor broke their neck or beat them to death with tongs…” (27)
___________________________________________________________

A 26 WEEK FETUS RESPONDS TO PARTIAL BIRTH ABORTION

On 3/21/1996, Nurse Brenda Shafer, RN testified before a US House of Representatives committee hearing on HR1833 - The Partial Birth Abortion Ban Act. Nurse Shafer reports that she was present for three “partial birth abortions” at an abortion clinic. She shares her observations of a 26 ½ week fetus responding to a “partial birth abortion:”

“I am a registered nurse…In September, 1993, …assignment at the Women's Medical Center, which is operated by Dr. Martin Haskell… I stood at a doctor's side as he performed the partial-birth abortion procedure… I worked as an assistant nurse at Dr. Haskell's clinic for three days-- September 28, 29, and 30, 1993…” (20)

“I was present for three of these partial-birth procedures. It is the first one that I will describe to you in detail. The mother was six months pregnant (26 1/2 weeks)… Dr. Haskell brought the ultrasound in and hooked it up so that he could see the baby. On the ultrasound screen, I could see the heart beating… As Dr. Haskell watched the baby on the ultrasound screen, the baby's heartbeat was clearly visible on the ultrasound screen.” (20)

“Dr. Haskell went in with forceps and grabbed the baby's legs and pulled them down into the birth canal. Then he delivered the baby's body and the arms-- everything but the head. The doctor kept the baby's head just inside the uterus.” (20)

“The baby's little fingers were clasping and unclasping, and his feet were kicking. Then the doctor stuck the scissors through the back of his head, and the baby's arms jerked out in a flinch, a startle reaction, like a baby does when he thinks that he might fall.” The doctor opened up the scissors, stuck a high-powered suction tube into the opening and sucked the baby's brains out. Now the baby was completely limp… ” (20)

***********************************************************

G. THE FETAL HARVESTING INDUSTRY:

In 1997, “Kelly” - a former fetal harvesting lab technician who worked in an abortion clinic - reported to Life Dynamics, Inc. [a pro life group] on her experiences in the fetal harvesting industry. Life Dynamics conducted a two year undercover investigation and then went public with her testimony and documented evidence of the industry in 1999. (27,28,29,30,31)
___________________________________________________________

THE FETAL HARVESTING FIRMS

At least two US fetal harvesting firms have received recent media attention - AGF (Anatomical Gift Foundation) and Opening Lines. At least one - AGF - is set up as a non-profit organization. These firms collect, prepare and ship harvested fetal remains from abortions. (28,29,30)
___________________________________________________________

A THRIVING AND PROFITABLE INDUSTRY

Opening Lines claims in its literature to fill over 1,500 fetal parts orders per day. (27,29) AGF had revenues of more than $2 million dollars in 1998. (28)
___________________________________________________________

HOW THE US FETAL HARVESTING INDUSTRY OPERATES

In the USA, the US Federal Uniform Anatomic Gift Act has made it illegal to buy or sell fetal remains. (27,29) Violation of this law is a federal felony, carrying penalties of up to 10 years in prison and $250,000 in fines. (27)

To circumvent this law, US fetal harvesting firms are charged a “site fee” by abortion clinics to cover the costs of allowing fetal harvest lab technicians the use of space at US abortion clinics. The collected fetal remains are then “donated” by the abortion clinics to the fetal harvesting firms. These firms in turn then “donate” the desired fetal remains to clients, who in turn “reimburse” the fetal harvesting firms for their costs of collection and shipping. (27,28,29,30)
___________________________________________________________

THE CUSTOMERS OF US FETAL HARVESTING FIRMS

Clients of US fetal harvesting firms like AGF and Opening Lines are sent overnight to public universities, pharmaceutical firms, and private research laboratories in the US and the world. (27,28)
___________________________________________________________

HARVESTED FETAL “DONORS” MUST BE IN OPTIMAL CONDITION

Such researchers ordering harvested fetal remains make such requests as “normal donor; healthy, no genetic disorder; healthy mother.” (27) One former fetal harvest lab technician reported that at least 90% of the aborted fetus subjects she saw for harvesting appeared to be healthy, “These had to be the most perfect specimens we could give these researchers for the best value.” (28)
___________________________________________________________

LATE TERM FETAL “DONORS” NOT UNCOMMON

One fetal harvest protocol obtained by Life Dynamics from a client reads, “Whole eyes … Fresh, remove eye with as much optic nerve intact as possible. Whole intact Leg, include ENTIRE HIP JOINT, 22-24(-) weeks gest…. Kelly (the same former fetal harvest lab tech) reports she harvested organs from 30 to 40 “late” term fetal subjects per week. (28)
___________________________________________________________

WHAT FETAL HARVESTING FIRMS MARKET

Such fetal harvesting firms market fetal eyes, livers, spleens, pancreases, brains, thymuses, bone marrow, cardiac blood, venous blood from limbs, extremities, spines, spinal cords and kidneys. (27,28,29,30) Thus, one fetal cadaver can be marketed to multiple clients for multiple orders.

One such firm - Opening Lines - markets fetal livers for $150; two fetal limbs for $150; fetal bone marrow for $350; fetal brains for $999 (with a 30% discount if significantly fragmented). (29,27,30) AGF markets fetal livers for $360; fetal hearts for $490; fetal spines for $630. (29)
___________________________________________________________

FRESH FETAL “DONORS” MOST DESIRED

Kelly [again the same fetal harvest lab technician] reports one instance in which a doctor at the abortion clinic where she worked delivered live fetal subjects to her for dissection. She reports the abortion doctor walked into the fetal harvest lab and said to her, "Got you some good specimens. Twins." She reports the pan the doctor carried contained two perfectly formed 24-week-old babies moving and grasping for air. Kelly reports she objected saying, "They are moving. I don’t do this. That’s not in my contract." In response to her objection, the abortion doctor reportedly immediately filled the pan until the mouths and noses of the fetal subjects were covered by water. (29)

Kelly further reported this was not an isolated case, “Sometimes the fetus appeared to be dead, but when you’d open up the chest cavity, you’d see the heart beating… They were coming out alive…with three to four live-births in a typical two-week period.” (28)

Documents of orders obtained from Planned Parenthood abortion clinics by Life Dynamics confirms that clients requested fetal harvesting to be done immediately after fetal death. Such requests stated,

“Whole eyes … Fresh, remove eye with as much optic nerve intact as possible. Whole intact Leg, include ENTIRE HIP JOINT, 22-24(-) weeks gest…. To be removed from fetal cadaver within 10 minutes. The tissue needs to be snap frozen as fresh as possible.” (28)

Life Dynamics uncovered other fetal harvest protocols revealing that clients wanted fetal remains to be collected as soon after fetal death as possible. One request reads, "Tissue should be removed and prepared under aseptic conditions within a maximum of ten minutes after circulation has stopped.” (27) Another request for fetal placenta, liver, heart and lung be dissected "ASAP (within 30 minutes)." (27)

One of Opening Line’s marketing brochures assures clients of "the freshest tissue prepared to your specification and delivered in the quantities you need it." (29)

H. CONCLUSIONS

This paper began in the text “Physiology of Behavior” (8th edition, 2004) by Carlson. (1) The text discusses the long-term failure of treating Parkinson’s disease with the drug L-DOPA - the precursor for dopamine. One emerging possible surgical treatment involves injecting of harvested aborted human fetal dopamine-producing brain tissue into the brains of Parkinson’s disease patients. This raises questions about human fetal neurological development, abortion methods, fetal behavior responses to abortion and the fetal harvesting industry - none of which are covered in the psychobiology text in question. We are left to ponder on our own how a neural-tube-shaped human embryo at 28 days gestation becomes a fully formed, living human infant some time after birth. (1) Thus this paper.

Anatomy and behaviors relevant to human fetal psychobiology in the 1st, 2nd and 3rd trimesters were briefly listed. Selected pictures of live in utero and aborted human fetus subjects at different ages of pregnancy were noted. The information reviewed strongly suggests that the human fetus begins early in gestation to show clear anatomy and behaviors that are distinctly human.

Selected methods of abortion were briefly reviewed. Several pictures of aborted human fetus subjects were presented. This raised the very relevant question of how the human fetus behaves in response to abortion. Commentary on a real-time ultrasound recorded abortion of a 12-week live fetus - narrated by a well experienced former abortion doctor - was presented. Eye witness testimony at US Congressional hearings of two Registered Nurses - one who witnessed “live birth abortions” and another who witnessed “partial birth abortions” on late 2nd trimester and 3rd trimester fetus subjects was reviewed. Accounts of aborted fetus subjects delivered still alive by abortion doctors to fetal harvesting lab technicians at an abortion clinic was presented. These accounts strongly suggest that human fetal subjects undergoing abortion respond to and suffer from the termination of their lives in a distinctly human manner.

Lastly the US fetal harvesting industry was briefly examined. Human fetal “donors” provide tissues, organs and body parts at US abortion clinics to industry, academic and research facilities across the nation and abroad. Although buying and selling of fetal remains in the US is prohibited by federal law, money changes hands between abortion providers, fetal harvesting firms and recipients of fetal remains. Clients requesting specific fetal remains were shown to prefer later term fetus subjects who are screened for ideal health in which the harvesting is done immediately after fetal death. One aborted human fetus can be marketed for multiple fetal matter to multiple clients. Some aborted human fetal subjects are delivered still alive post abortion at abortion clinics to fetal harvesting labs on the premises. The marketing of aborted fetal dopamine-producing brain tissue for treatment of Parkinson’s disease patients is but one small submarket in this new industry.
