Under the Obama-Biden administration, aborted babies’ bodies were chopped into pieces, labeled with a “service fee” and shipped to scientific researchers – and American taxpayers unknowingly paid for it.
One group offered aborted babies’ eyes, brains, livers and lungs to researchers for hundreds of dollars a piece – treating them as commodities rather than as valuable children.
Documents obtained by Judicial Watch through a Freedom of Information Act request and a U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee Investigation show details of these gristly transactions between the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and human tissue procurement groups.
The Federalist reports one document includes a fee schedule for aborted babies’ organs from Advanced Bioscience Resources (ABR), a human tissue procurement group that works with Planned Parenthood and other abortion facilities.

The ABR chart lists body parts harvested from aborted babies at 20 weeks from Planned Parenthood of the Pacific Southwest (PPPSW). The list includes aborted babies’ “eyes (2)” at a “specimen service fee” of $650, brain for $325, liver and thymus for $325 each, and lung for $325.
Another fee chart lists prices between January 2010 through January 2015 for first trimester (eight to 12 weeks) and second trimester (13 to 24 weeks) “specimen.” The prices range from $200 to $550 per specimen.
The Federalist reports more about the documents:
The FDA bought organs like livers, brains, and eyeballs of dismembered babies for hundreds of dollars apiece, courtesy of ABR’s collusion with local Planned Parenthoods.
ABR fee schedules and pricing charts obtained during a U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee Investigation allow us to piece together how much a baby costs by body part, as if each child was a slaughtered animal sold in sections.
These transactions happened under pro-abortion President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden, unbeknownst to American taxpayers. Some of the aborted babies’ organs were used to create “humanized mice” for scientific experiments funded by the National Institutes of Health, an agency of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
Under the Obama administration, at least $77 million tax dollars were spent on research projects that used aborted baby body parts, according to The Hill.
Several years ago, David Daleiden and the Center for Medical Progress uncovered evidence of potentially illegal sales of human body parts by Planned Parenthood. The undercover investigation found abortionists allegedly putting women’s lives at risk by altering abortion procedures to better harvest aborted baby parts. The investigators also found evidence of possible patient privacy violations.
Heightened outrage due to the Center for Medical Progress investigation and other reports prompted President Donald Trump’s administration to stop funding these unethical purchases.
However, earlier this month, President Joe Biden’s administration reversed Trump’s actions and allowed tax dollars to be used for research using aborted baby body parts again.
