The Department of Health and Human Services renewed a contract University of California at San Francisco to make “humanized mice,” reported CNSNews Friday, Mar. 1.
It confirms what nasayers cautioned nearly a decade ago about the slippery slope of embryonic stem cell research, which Pres. Barack Obama reversed.
“The simple answer is he thinks murder’s wrong,” then-White House spokesman Tony Snow stated in July, 2006 following legislation designed to reverse the Bush administration’s stem cell regulations. “The president is not going to get on the slippery slope of taking something living and making it dead for the purposes of scientific research.”
In the gruesome, Frankenstein-esque “experiments,” creatures are made by implanting mice with human tissues taken from late-term aborted babies. The contract specifically requires researchers at UCSF to make two different types of “humanized mice” both of which are “engrafted with human fetal liver and thymus” taken from babies 20-to-24 weeks in gestational age. In other words, the babies used today can (and are) deliverable human beings (or “preemies”) that modern medicine can care for in incubators until healthy enough to go home with their loving parents.
“Humanized Mouse Models for HIV Therapeutics Development” will run through June 5. The HHS’s multi-million-dollar contract with UCSF requires that the National Institutes of Health — an agency under the control of HHS — spend $95 million this fiscal year alone on research that uses “human fetal tissue,” no matter what form it takes.
