Transplant surgeon complains about not having access to fetal organs

By Sarah Terzo

“It’s absolutely absurd that I have a legal right to abort that baby out of the mother within a week of delivery and throw it out, but because it’s delivered, I have no access to it [for its organs].

Dr. Leonard Bailey, who gained fame for transplanting a baboon’s heart into a newborn baby.

Quoted in Dave Andrusko’s, “A Time to Stop.” National Right to Life News, March 10, 1988, pages 2 and 10.
