  • The fetus, as a uniquely vulnerable and dependent human person, merits the same (or even heightened) protections that modern declarations and codes of medical ethics impose on all human subject research. (cbhd.org)
  • Those who are responsible for terminating the life of a fetus have failed to recognize this fundamental principle of human dignity, and thus have no moral claim to be able to donate or assign the body, organs, or tissues of the fetus to others, regardless of the nobility of purpose. (cbhd.org)
  • Rather, the fetus is dissected and the parts shipped to either the private corporation, university, or government agency where the research is being conducted. (freerepublic.com)
  • Reasonable people can-and most definitely do, strongly-disagree on the medical ethics not only of abortion but also of "organ harvesting" from the resulting fetus. (a-remedy-for-death.com)
  • It involves taking tissue samples from the fetus, which are analyzed for chromosomal, biochemical, and DNA content. (questia.com)
  • Between bites of food and sips of wine, she describes at one point how a doctor performing an abortion might manipulate a fetus' position to preserve organs that are desirable for research. (houstonchronicle.com)
  • Scientists
  • The distribution of fetal body parts to scientists is a million-dollar industry. (freerepublic.com)
  • Scientists are also using fetal tissue to try to identify substances in adults that could be early warning signs of cancer, said Dr. Akhilesh Pandey, a molecular biologist at Johns Hopkins University. (pbs.org)
  • The International Society for Stem Cell Research (ISSCR) is the world's leading professional organization of stem cell scientists, representing more than 4,000 members in 45 U.S. states and 65 countries around the world. (isscr.org)
  • The Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD) proposes to fund a limited number of research centers which will provide an arena for multidisciplinary interactions among basic and clinical scientists interested in establishing high quality translational research programs in the area of obstetric pharmacology. (nih.gov)
  • This initiative targets critical gaps in research that are delaying the conversion of new discoveries to new therapies, and particularly encourages the formation of new, multidisciplinary teams involving scientists that may not have worked in the human stem cell field and those that incorporate the full spectrum of expertise and experience in translational medical research. (nih.gov)
  • involves
  • It is "morally impermissible to engage in any research, for any purpose, that involves the destruction of human beings at any stage of their lives, including the embryonic stage, or in any condition, however weak or dependent. (cbhd.org)

  • Parkinson's
  • In the case of Parkinson's disease, it is hoped that the fetal tissue would produce chemicals, specifically dopamine, which is lacking in the diseased brain. (wordpress.com)
  • While recent efforts to transplant fetal tissue to treat conditions like Parkinson's haven't been as consistently successful, it's still critical to scientific progress. (time.com)
  • bioethics
  • Editor's Note: Paige Cunningham, Executive Director of The Center for Bioethics & Human Dignity submitted the following testimony on March 2, 2016 to the SELECT INVESTIGATIVE PANEL OF THE COMMITTEE ON ENERGY AND COMMERCE U. S. HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES regarding the ethics of fetal tissue use in research. (cbhd.org)
  • The Center is a Christian bioethics research center at Trinity International University in Deerfield, Illinois. (cbhd.org)
  • immoral
  • Having called the August 2000 guidelines for destructive human embryo research immoral and illegal, the bishops excoriated President Bush's "accommodation" of destructive research already performed on existing embryonic stem-cell lines as "morally unacceptable," and urged him to "return to a principled stand. (beliefnet.com)

  • body
  • But the public largely is unaware of the way the laundry list of body parts for scientific research is filled. (freerepublic.com)
  • Because the sale of human tissue or body parts is prohibited by federal law, the traffickers have worked out an arrangement to expedite the process from which they all benefit and still remain within current interpretations of the law. (freerepublic.com)
