In my own home state of Oregon, a prolife organization has confirmed that it’s not just Planned Parenthood that’s selling baby body parts for medical research, but also a private abortion clinic in Portland. Recently, one of the women who was there for a late-term abortion gave the pro-lifers outside some information that directly tied the clinic to Advanced Bioscience Resources, the same company noted in the Center for Medical Progress videos as buying the body parts of babies from Planned Parenthood.

Notice the irony of the statement on their promotional materials: “One person can make a world of difference.” Yet the personhood of unborn children is completely ignored.
Personhood isn’t something to be bestowed on human beings by Ivy League professors (Princeton’s bioethics prof Peter Singer comes to mind) intent on ridding society of “undesirables.” Personhood has an inherent value that comes from being a member of the human race. According to the Bible, this is part of being created in God’s image.
The materials also claim “tissue” donation is “An opportunity for ANY woman to help ALL women and our world.” But what about the fact that half (and in some places, more) of all aborted babies are female? To kill an unborn female is to kill a young woman. To sell off her body parts is to exploit a young woman. There can be no equal rights for all women until there are equal rights for unborn women.
