Unborn Baby Body Parts Used In Research Experiment

Defending life from conception to natural death
Media Release –


Right to Life-New Zealand wishes to thank Ian Wishart for uncovering the trade in unborn baby body parts operating at the University of Auckland in the November issue of Investigate magazine. Dr Keely Bumsted O'Brien has been the recipient of these body parts for research.

The body parts were obtained from American abortion clinics run by Planned Parenthood which is affiliated with the New Zealand Family Planning Association. American unborn babies are being experimented on by Dr O'Brien and New Zealand students.

I an Wishart quite rightly makes a comparison with Auschwitz where Nazi doctors performed hideous experiments on Jewish people. Right to Life-New Zealand deplores this body parts trade and calls on Dr O'Brien, and Auckland University to cease the trade in body parts and this unethical abuse of dead unborn babies.
