Foetus Research Should Be Stopped

Tuesday 18th October, 2005

Foetus Research Should Be Stopped

The research being conducted at the Auckland University on the remains of aborted foetuses is gravely immoral and it should be stopped immediately.

The research that is being carried out on the remains of aborted children at Auckland University is gravely immoral and it can only lead to an even worse devaluing of human life.

The mentality that drives such experiments, that the ends justifies the means, is the exact same mentality that fuelled the horrific experiments carried out by Nazi doctors during the Second World War.

The purchasing of foetal remains, for any reason, turns abortion into a heinous money making exercise, and it further degrades the life of the baby that is lost to abortion and the mother involved.

We request that the Auckland University considers the human life that is lost and the emotional trauma that abortion brings to the lives of many women, and ceases its involvement with the heinous practise of experimenting on aborted foetal remains.
