Recently, we wrote about revelations that UConn and Yale procured — or tried to procure — aborted babies’ organs from Planned Parenthood. To reiterate, the problem is clearly bigger than Planned Parenthood, though of course they’re a major part of it. Lest we leave anyone out: the trail of blood also leads to Quinnipiac University, and right up to the very top. Crisis Magazine has the story on Quinnipiac President John Lahey’s ties to research that uses aborted baby body parts:
On his bio page at the university’s website, Lahey is listed as “a director of” a group called the “Alliance for Cancer Gene Therapy.”
Lahey is listed among the board of directors on the medical foundation’s website, in which the organization declares its mission is to “support the extraordinary potential offered by cell and gene-based therapies to accelerate effective and safe treatment of all types of cancer.”
One of the ways the Alliance supports such therapies is by financially backing federally-supported studies that use human organs that have been mined from aborted infants and sold to researchers.
On the National Institutes of Health website is an “author manuscript” of a 2013 study titled “Humanized mice: novel model for studying mechanisms of human immune-based therapies.” …The source of the fetal human tissue involved in the testing is bluntly admitted:
Human fetal liver and thymus from elective terminations, 12–23 weeks of gestational age (Advanced Bioscience Resources, Alameda, CA), are acquired on a fee for service basis, and the tissue is delivered approximately every 14 days.
Under a section titled “Acknowledgments,” the researchers gratefully note “support from the Alliance for Cancer Gene Therapy (ACGT).”
Advanced Bioscience Resources has been exposed for paying Planned Parenthood abortion clinics to procure intact organs for them as the clinics dismembered unborn children.
Our readers may be also be interested in Lahey’s connection to the New York City St. Patrick’s Day Parade, where his influence apparently has not been for the better (satire really is dead if he actually suggested removing mention of St. Patrick himself from the bylaws). Crisis has more details on Lahey’s theological and college background; suffice it to say that he would not be the first high-profile individual in either the public or private sphere to appear to have a Catholic education that did him little good. California’s Governor Jerry Brown comes to mind, with his much-touted “former seminarian” status and fresh ink on two bills legalizing assisted suicide and attacking pregnancy centers.
I would like to see those fine, and likely expensive, degrees put to use answering this deep philosophical question: How many babies have to die to cure one cancer patient?
Lahey can be contacted at 203-582-8700. Please let us know if you get an opportunity to ask him.
