Scientists researching blood supplies from abortions, claims newspaper
Necessary to maintain supplies, says National Health Service
UK researchers are trying to produce unlimited blood supplies derived from
stem cells from aborted foetuses and left-over IVF embryos, the Daily Mail
reports. With funding from the Wellcome Trust and the National Health Service,
scientists at various institutions are trying to create "O-negative" blood — a
group which can be transfused into anyone without being rejected and to use
embryonic stem cells to produce unlimited quantities of healthy blood.
A report to the board of NHS Blood and Transplant, seen by the Daily Mail,
warns that if the National Blood Service does not adopt embryo and foetal tissue
research, it may lose out to rival facilities. Staff who do not wish to
participate will have the right to refuse. ~ Daily
