Cosmetics ... from dead fetuses?
At one time, the world was shocked by the information that the Swiss pharmaceutical company Neocutis Inc. uses cells from the bodies of children killed during abortion in some of its products ("Washington Post" - click).
The reactions were obvious - anger, shock, disbelief, denial. Pro-life environments called for boycotting products from companies using, among others, skin cell proteins from aborted fetuses.
Neocutis in a statement in response to a wave of condemnation defended the use of its trademarked ingredient. Processed skin cell proteins - PSP, according to the company fetal cell line that has been collected in a responsible, ethical manner for use in the treatment of severe dermatological injuries. Are you sure?
The translation raises doubts ... Cells of aborted fetuses ... found themselves mainly in very expensive anti-aging creams. For obvious reasons, luxury cosmetics are not meant to save lives ... but to reach wealthy women who want to stop skin aging at all costs, while maintaining youth.
Neocutis, specializing in dermatology, reported that the "key ingredient" of her creams was "processed skin protein" (PSP), which was supposed to help rebuild aging cells. The leaflets read that PSP has the ability to grow remarkably and is very resistant to both oxidative and physical stress.
What's worse, subsequent reports have confirmed this was not the only case of the abused children being used by the cosmetics industry.
Don't ask, don't read, don't think ...
The Swiss company obviously used a language that was not associated with the practice of killing unborn children. The word 'child' has been replaced by the term 'embryo cells' and 'aborted' to 'transferred outside the mother's body'.
After numerous and loud protests of all pro-life movements, Neocutis declared that does not directly buy aborted corpses and acts in accordance with human rights. "We are not abortionists, we do not justify voluntary abortion, and we have a clear conscience, because we do not commit or even participate in wrongdoing ..." - you could read in a statement on the corporation's websites. "Exclusive Swiss Technology available through physicians" - says the slogan Neocutis, in which the producer emphasizes that ... doctors are involved in the procedure.
Body parts of aborted children - for sale?
A few years ago, the popular American 60 minutes program revealed that various parts of the aborted child's body could be bought without hindrance. You can buy almost anything. Prices depend on the age and condition of the "material".
It is no secret that the cosmetics industry works closely with the abortion business on a larger scale than only in the cases mentioned above. However, because these two cases (Neocutis and Merieux) leaked to the media and were more publicized, companies were forced to save themselves by language manipulation and PR activities that had one goal - to keep them alive.
And what do you buy?
Unfortunately, many women, despite appeals and evidence presented by organizations fighting this practice, are still eager to use products of companies using controversial ingredients from the bodies of aborted children.
Stem cells - what are they made of?
Stem cells are obtained primarily from human embryos, whether they remain after artificial insemination, abortions or specially created for this purpose. As a result of cell collection, the embryos are destroyed.
The so-called. adult stem cells can be obtained in turn from muscles, spinal cord, liver, bones and other tissues, without the need to destroy embryos. However, they have less capacity to differentiate than embryonic cells.
Rebecca Taylor, a specialist in molecular biology, has compiled a list of companies that use cells and tissues from aborted children. They found on it: the English company ReNeuron, which is applying for the right to conduct clinical trials in the United States, the company Neuralstem, Neocutis, Merck, GlaxoSmithKline and Senomyx.
What are vaccines made of?
The aborted particles are also used for production of some vaccines. Manufacturers use cell lines MRC-5 and WI-38, which are the basis of vaccine production against rubella, polio, hepatitis A and chickenpox ("As for vaccines, Catholics are subject to Vatican instructions in this regard, according to which parents should demand alternative vaccines produced without the use of aborted children's cells. However, vaccination is permitted, which also protects the lives of children using vaccines obtained from aborted children, although "it is not morally indifferent" - we can read on piotrskarga.pl).
