Planned Parenthood May be Keeping Aborted Babies Alive to Harvest Hearts

A world-renowned stem cell researcher has claimed that Planned Parenthood likely manipulates abortion procedures to keep babies alive long enough to harvest their hearts. Dr. Theresa Deisher reviewed three years of reports provided by pro-life activists to come to the conclusion. 


Deisher told Breitbart News, “If you read scientific publications, in which they use the fetal material for some indications, particularly, cardio-vascular, or nerve cell research, they discuss the necessity of having tissue in the digesting buffer solution within five minutes for optimal yields. So, within five minutes of death, you would have to have the heart removed, and flushed of all blood, cleaned of any extra tissue that might be there, and the heart put into a liquid with enzymes that would digest the connective tissue and release the muscle cells.”


She continued, “Sometimes, they use an apparatus where they hook the heart up and they would flush fluid through it to keep it alive and beating. And you can’t have a dead heart that’s going to work in that kind of process.”


“Biomedical companies prefer gestational ages of greater than 20 weeks for heart muscle. This is from reading their publications; so, I have always suspected that the babies in some of these cases were alive until their hearts were cut out.”


Deisher was involved with the commercial biomedical field for decades before she found the industry’s research with aborted babies to be incompatible with her pro-life views. 


Deisher said of Planned Parenthood, “I don’t think that any American can imagine fully what is happening in these clinics. And, visually, perhaps, they need to see it. I think it’s important that people see the reality of what’s done. It’s absolutely barbaric.”
