The Washington Post recently published an article on how corpses donated to science ended up in “human chop shops” across the United States for a wide range of purposes.

The news reported that a jury of the Maricopa County Superior Court granted 10 donor families a total of $58 million in compensation.

The company in the scandal is the Phoenix Biological Resource Center (BRC), which allegedly tricked them into donating the bodies of their deceased loved ones. Later, these families discovered that the bodies were sold for profit without their consent.

Jim Stauffer, one of the victims, donated his mother’s body to the company in the hope that it would be used to advance Alzheimer’s disease research. However, 10 days later he received his mother’s ashes in a box, but they were only from one hand, since the rest had been used for an Army experiment, according to Reuters.

Some of the donated remains were used as ‘test mannequins’ to explore how a human body would react to certain explosions and other such experiments.

Although this shocked many people, the case posed a ‘double standard’ for Lila Rose, president of the pro-life organization Live Action.

“WaPo reports on a “chop shop” selling human remains without consent that is being forced to pay $58 million in damages.” Meanwhile, Planned Parenthood chop shops that kill babies and sell their body parts are funded daily w/ $1.4 million in taxpayer dollars,” tweeted Rose.

The pro-life activist’s tweet was in relation to the nation’s largest abortion corporation, Planned Parenthood, which has also been proven to sell human body parts.

Planned Parenthood employees were captured by the hidden cameras of the Center for Medical Progress (CMP), insensitively discussing body parts, profits, and prices of unborn babies.

CMP leader David Daleiden and his colleagues showed the material, exposing Planned Parenthood’s profits from the sale of body parts of aborted babies.

However, the jury in Daleiden’s federal civil trial sided with Planned Parenthood and awarded punitive damages of more than $2.2 million to the abortion multinational after Judge William Orrick III ruled that jurors could not consider any information Daleiden obtained from videotapes to determine the verdict. Not only that, but Daleiden and his team were prosecuted by the state of California.

The late Holly O’Donnell, a former StemExpress employee, confirmed this obscure body parts business in the abortion industry when she told CMP about her experiences working as a fetal procreation technician.

She commented that regardless of whether the mother consented to the harvesting of the organs or parts of the fetus or not, she is not paid any compensation and does not know what the remains of her aborted baby are used for.

The abortion industry’s indifference to unborn human beings was highlighted in the trial of convicted abortionist and murderer Kermit Gosnell and was recently highlighted in the news when authorities in Indiana and Illinois discovered that thousands of aborted babies remained in the home and car of Ulrich Klopfer, a renowned deceased abortionist.

This issue of the BCR and the sale of human remains reopens a conscience issue: human beings, born and unborn, must be treated with dignity.
