According to CNSNews.com, “A group of government researchers working for a National Institutes of Health laboratory in Montana made ‘humanized mice’ by implanting the mice with tissues cut from human livers and thymuses taken from babies at 17 to 22 weeks gestational age.”
The researchers wrote, “they hoped their description of the process would help other researchers seeking to make such mice in the future.
“The same government researchers had collaborated on another journal article about the ‘humanized’ mouse with an NIH-funded researcher at Massachusetts General Hospital–which has an ongoing federal grant that also involves humanizing mice using human fetal human fetal livers and thymuses.
“The NIH could not answer some basic questions about the fetal tissue used in these research projects that U.S. taxpayers funded.”
Taxpayer-Funded National Institutes of Health
So, the taxpayer funded National Institutes of Health find it ethical and humane to kill second trimester babies so their organs can be implanted into mice to make them human. And then, the NIH researchers are too cowardly to answer questions about the fetal tissues they are using.
Apparently the mice end up being more human than the NIH researchers.
