In absolutely shocking news, medical ethicists are sounding the alarm on a disturbing practice of medical researchers in Mexico. Near the city of Puerto Vallarta, women are being paid to receive artificial insemination so that they can then abort the children for the purpose of medical research.
Research posted in the Journal of Human Reproduction divulged the practice at the Mexican hospital, which is designed to compare the health of “embryos” (living human beings) produced by artificial insemination versus those created through the act of normal sexual reproduction.
Women were – or perhaps still are – being paid to serve as incubators for embryos, so they can later be “flushed out” and examined by researchers.
Laurie Zoloth, who is a bioethicist at the University of Chicago, said, “What this essentially does is use a woman’s body as a petri dish. And there’s something about that that seems so profoundly disturbing.”
Nonetheless, the researchers bragged about their inhumane treatment of both mother and child.
Santiago Munne, who is a reproductive geneticist who makes infertility treatment equipment, said, “We have now a method that can produce embryos that are of good quality or better than in vitro fertilization” as though it was justification for the practice.
Reminiscent of the Nazi medical experiments on Jews, the researchers took no regard for the subjects of their medical research and they conduct it in the name of the greater good.
The women were paid $1,400 to conceive the child and then 4-6 days later underwent a procedure known as “lavage,” in which a device “flushes” out any conceived embryos from the womb.
For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother’s womb (Psalm 139:13).
