Experimenters Pay Mexican Women to Get Pregnant and Abort


Women in Mexico were paid $1400 to be hyperstimulated so their ovaries released bountiful eggs instead of one during their cycle. They then underwent artificial insemination, resulting in early pregnancy with multiple embryos, which were then flushed out of their bodies for study…

This “experiment” was very wrong on at least four fronts. First, it created human life for the purpose of experimenting upon it. Second, it paid women to have abortions (when all the embryos were not flushed). Third, it treated women as objects, merely as “a Petri dish,” to quote bioethicist Lorie Zoloth (with whom I have had my differences in the past, but not here). Fourth, hyperstimulation can have serious side effects, even leading to occasional death. Add in the likelihood that the women were very poor, and you have a real exploitive circumstance…

The idea here is to create a new method for the fertility industry, in which women will be paid to mass produce embryos within their bodies — surrogate conception, let’s call it — which will then be flushed out in the lab. After that, embryos will be subjected to quality control procedures — perhaps including sex selection. Those that pass quality control will be implanted in women who want to give birth or who become pregnant as surrogate “gestational carriers,” in the dehumanizing parlance of the industry. And all for big bucks. Big Fertility is fast becoming a moral hazard.

  1. I swear by Apollo the physician, and Asclepius, and Hygieia and Panacea and all the gods and goddesses as my witnesses, that, according to my ability and judgement, I will keep this Oath and this contract:

    To hold him who taught me this art equally dear to me as my parents, to be a partner in life with him, and to fulfill his needs when required; to look upon his offspring as equals to my own siblings, and to teach them this art, if they shall wish to learn it, without fee or contract; and that by the set rules, lectures, and every other mode of instruction, I will impart a knowledge of the art to my own sons, and those of my teachers, and to students bound by this contract and having sworn this Oath to the law of medicine, but to no others.

    I will use those dietary regimens which will benefit my patients according to my greatest ability and judgement, and I will do no harm or injustice to them.

    I will not give a lethal drug to anyone if I am asked, nor will I advise such a plan; and similarly I will not give a woman a pessary to cause an abortion.

    In purity and according to divine law will I carry out my life and my art.

    I will not use the knife, even upon those suffering from stones, but I will leave this to those who are trained in this craft.

    Into whatever homes I go, I will enter them for the benefit of the sick, avoiding any voluntary act of impropriety or corruption, including the seduction of women or men, whether they are free men or slaves.

    Whatever I see or hear in the lives of my patients, whether in connection with my professional practice or not, which ought not to be spoken of outside, I will keep secret, as considering all such things to be private.

    So long as I maintain this Oath faithfully and without corruption, may it be granted to me to partake of life fully and the practice of my art, gaining the respect of all men for all time. However, should I transgress this Oath and violate it, may the opposite be my fate.

  2. “Big Fertility is fast becoming a moral hazard.”

    Wrong verb tense. It’s been one for a very long time now.

  3. Libertarians approve because they can’t disapprove…their bodies, their right…private business transaction between two willing parties…it’s none of your business…we’re too stoned right now to compute anything…etc.

  4. Nothing like starting off the day with confirmation that human beings can be the fucking, most evil thing walking the face of the earth.

    Whoever concocted this crap deserves the room in between Teddy and McCain.

    I don’t imagine more then 5% of us have any idea about what a hell on earth the country to the south of us has become. It is home to the largest criminal organizations on the planet. I wouldn’t be the least bit surprised to find out that the cartels had a hand in this.

    Heaven help us should the trickle of them that now reap their ill gotten gains(comparatively) here be allowed to up their presence. President Trump understands. Pray for his safety.

  5. Just when you ask yourself how can we become any more debased and bestial?
    The answer pops up!

    And not in some moslem shithole (this time) but in a majority Christian country!
    Pope chimed in on this? Or is he too busy playing “hide the sausage” in the College of Cardinals?

    I submit that Evil stalks the Earth. Not some weird pointy-tailed boogie man, but the a-morality of Evil, the numbing, depersonalization, and atomization of society that precipitated the KZ and Gulag systems at the beginning of the last century. The bankruptcy of morals that fuels the rise in socialism, totalitarianism, izlamism, and every other de-humanizing oppressive philosophy under the Sun.

  6. Evil all the way around….

    satan seen laughing and spreading his wings in approval of this inhuman plot to further degrade us bio-commodities.

    Oh well, at least someone is getting rich from this because that’s all that matters in the world today…..right?!?

  7. Satan isn’t to blame for this. All mankind has within itself, in our collective sin nature from our progenitor Adam, more than enough darkness of heart and mind to account for this and every other wicked abomination in human history.

    Besides, the Bible is clear that that’s where God’s going to put the blame at the Great White Throne judgment…on those who do the deeds.

    There will be no “But the Devil made me do it!”

    No, YOU did it.

  8. grool,
    I’ve recently wondered if “… deliver us from evil …” is a prayer for us to be delivered from the evil extant in the Universe or from the evil within us.
    I don’t know Aramaic (or even Hebrew, Greek, or Latin, for that matter) so I really have no way to uncover the mystery.

    More shit that I don’t know.

    izlamo delenda est …

  9. Tim,

    Excellent question. The context of that whole prayer is the believing remnant of Israel that will someday have to endure the Tribulation, aka the time of Jacob’s trouble. As that day is not yet and Israel is still stumbled in unbelief, it’s honestly neither addressed to nor about people today.
