Selling Body Parts
In 2017 Reuters did a series on the selling of body parts. It is way to much to write about so I am providing all the links and where to start.
For more than a year, Reuters has examined America’s body trade, a little-known and virtually unregulated industry. These businesses, which call themselves non-transplant tissue banks, are also known as body brokers.
The operations can resemble meat-packing plants. At BRC, body parts from heads to fingernails were harvested and sold. On Saturday mornings, Kazemi taught college students how to dismember cadavers in the company lab. He also starred in a grisly training video, demonstrating how to carve out a man’s spine using a motorized saw.
The documents obtained by Reuters – along with dozens of interviews with investigators, former BRC workers and families of donors – offer an unparalleled look at how one of America’s major body brokers operated.
The records, never before made public, also reveal how little the government or the donors themselves understood what was happening at the company, and show in graphic detail how a cadaver becomes a commodity.
This is not the same as organ transplants. That is supposedly regulated. Only 10 states regulate the sale of body parts.
I am sure if you are reading my blog you have heard of David Daleiden.
David Daleiden is a citizen journalist with nearly a decade of experience in conducting investigative research on the abortion industry.
In 2013, David started The Center for Medical Progress to pursue sophisticated, deep, and impactful investigative journalism projects pertaining to contemporary bioethical issues.
As Project Lead at CMP, David developed and executed the organization’s first long-term project, the 30-month-long “Human Capital” investigation documenting Planned Parenthood’s illegal sale of body parts from aborted fetuses.
Prior to CMP, David worked as Director of Research for a national new media education and advocacy organization.
If you are for some reason NOT familiar with David Daleiden or The Center for Medical Progress, all the videos are listed on this YouTube site.
I hope everyone is staying safe during this plague. If you remember please say a prayer for me as I have not been able to get a small business loan. Having been in real estate for 24 years I have learned to budget for our snowy months in Michigan.
However, by February/March we are always busy. Now I am sitting with sellers wanting to list and our Medical Residents wanting to buy.
I’ve only had a panic attack twice, but yesterday it was bad. One of my children said, “Mom, you are always saying to trust God so do it”. Yes I do but a few prayers would help me right now.
God bless, He is Risen.
