Abortion Clinics Harvest Scalps of Aborted Babies, Sell Them to Researchers Treating Baldness

A former board director for the Center for Medical Progress testified during the civil trial in the San Francisco Federal District Court that the scalps of babies provided by the abortion industry are being harvested for research in treating baldness.

Liberty Counsel is defending Sandra Merritt against Planned Parenthood’s civil lawsuit seeking millions of dollars as punishment for her undercover investigation work with David Daleiden and CMP, which exposed the largest abortion mill’s trafficking in human baby body parts.

CMP board member Albin Rhomberg told the court that pro-life sidewalk counselors first discovered that the abortion industry was trafficking baby body parts in the early 2000s, before the CMP’s undercover investigation began. Rhomberg said that the staff at the abortion facility would arrive in the morning followed later by the abortionists. Then in midmorning, a new group of people arrived carrying containers, sometimes with ice and other tools and equipment. A few hours later, a FedEx truck arrived at a regular time and departed with “special refrigerated gel-pack containers.”

Rhomberg explained, “There were these rumors that they were collecting the bodies [of aborted babies] for sale or for distribution in some way. In some cases, the people noticed that the parts went out before the mother went out. She would come—[at] times, come staggering out later, typically throwing up in the bushes and being helped out of the place, after the baby parts had already gone into the FedEx truck.”

After talking with the FedEx drivers and conducting online research, Rhomberg discovered that Advanced Bioscience Resources was purchasing the baby parts, and they were likely being resold to those conducting a study on baldness.

“They were scalping the babies and taking their scalps and grafting them on to immune-suppressed mice, and then using various pharmaceuticals on these humanized mice to test the effect upon preventing or, I suppose you might say, treating baldness,” said Rhomberg.

During the trial, Rhomberg was also questioned about an email he sent Daleiden the day after CMP released its first video on July 14, 2015, in which he calls the video “the Nucatola NUKE” and writes it had been viewed over 700,000 times. Rhomberg estimated that the original YouTube video has been viewed three million times.  The video, which Judge Orrick has banned as evidence in the courtroom, shows Dr. Deborah Nucatola infamously discussing how she would “crush above” and “crush below” the baby’s thorax to obtain intact organs, and admitting she changes the position of the baby to breech to obtain an intact head.
