Organ harvesting today


Johanna’s story is not an isolated case.

SWEDEN, 1962

Karin* was just three months old** when her mother chose to take her to a clinic in 1962 to have her put to death by medical professionals. Both Karin and her mother were healthy. Karin’s mother knew they were going to kill her baby, but she had no inkling as to what they would do next. Instead of incinerating, burying, or throwing her little body away, they wrapped it in sterile green cloth and sent it to the Karolinska Institute in northwest Stockholm to be dissected and harvested for medical research.

Neither Karin nor her mother gave consent for her organs to be harvested in this way.

Karin didn’t consent to be killed either.

Her lung was used to create the cell line WI-38.

CHINA, 2015

Zhang Wei, Wang Wei, Wang Fang, Li Wei, Wang Xiu, Li Xiu Ying, Li Na, Zhang Xiu Ying, and Liu Wei were all approximately the same age when they were killed in China in 2015. The method of their execution was exceptionally brutal: they were probably still alive when their oppressors started dissecting them, though some of them may have already died by suffocation.

They had done nothing wrong. They were only 2-4 months** old.

Delivered by “water bag” “abortion”, they were deliberately kept alive as close to dissection time as possible to ensure their organs were at optimal freshness.

In the end, only Zhang Xiu Ying was selected for the final product: her lung was used to create a cell line called WALVAX-2.


Planned Parenthood, the main abortion provider in America, is known to sell organs of babies today for medical research. They alter the way in which they kill the babies so as to preserve the organs that are being requested.


Here in the UK, the Cardiff Fetal Tissue Bank and SWIFT tissue bank have been collecting “human fetal tissues from the tissue products resulting from elective termination of pregnancy ('abortions'). In the consent process, the purposes of…research programmes to develop new therapies for patients with degenerative brain diseases are fully explained, and the women are asked to donate their tissues [sic] to these research programmes."

We must not fail to acknowledge the huge number of victims of IVF: data collected in the UK over 21 years showed that 15 embryos were created per woman conceiving through IVF - a total of 3.5 million embryos. Of these, half were “discarded” (killed), whilst more than 800,000 were frozen indefinitely. More than 5,000 human beings were set aside for “scientific research”.


Far from being a thing of the past, an evil long ago from which we can safely appropriate benefit today without participation in or encouragement of that evil, organ harvesting from wrongly killed babies continues still today.

Organ harvesting from wrongly killed babies today is commonplace here and around the world.

The connection between the abortion industry and mainstream medical research globally is very strong.
