Doctor experimenting on living aborted baby in perfusion tank

Dr. Kirt Hirshorn of New York’s Mount Sinai Hospital, on research using living aborted babies :

“I don’t think [research on an aborted baby, which he calls a “nonviable fetus”] is unethical. It’s not possible to make the fetus into a child, therefore we can consider it nothing more than a piece of tissue.”
