Colorado State University Caught Buying Aborted Baby Body Parts for Research

Yesterday a shocking video released by the Center for Medical Progress showed Planned Parenthood’s Medical Director, Dr. Deborah Nucatola, discussing their negotiations with a business called Stem Express that purchases aborted babies’ body parts for experimentation.

Dr. Nucatola tells investigators posing as buyers from a human biologics company that Planned Parenthood charges per-specimen for baby body parts and is aware of their own liability for doing so. Unbelievably, she also explains that some body parts, such as livers and heads, are much more popular and go for a higher price than other specimen.

Now this scandal has come to Colorado.

On January 10, 2013, Colorado State University purchased fetal body parts from Planned Parenthood’s flagship abortion facility in San Jose, California via a company called StemExpress.  In total, nine specimens were harvested from eight different aborted babies killed in abortions at that Planned Parenthood clinic and the purchase order reveals CSU bought two body parts, including an aborted baby’s liver.

At the time, StemExpress paid Planned Parenthood $50 per specimen, which means that in one day they received $450. Additionally, Stem Express harvested body parts from Planned Parenthood facilities in Fresno, Sacramento and Stockton.

The documentation from StemExpress (below) reveals that Leila Remling, an employee of CSU’s Microbiology, Immunology and Pathology Department, purchased the body parts.

The pro-life group Colorado Citizens for Life issued a statement calling on Colorado State University to end the practice of conducting research using body parts from babies killed in abortions.

“It’s shocking and reprehensible that Colorado State University is purchasing the body parts of aborted babies for research. Colorado Citizens for Life calls on Colorado State University to immediately disclose what research it is conducting with body parts from babies victimized by abortion.”

“Colorado Citizens for Life demands that that CSU immediately end any and all research involving the use of body parts from babies killed in abortions. It is unethical and disrespectful of the babies who lives were taken in abortions to conduct research using their body parts.”

Below is the document from Stem Express showing their transaction with Colorado State University.
