  1. They (hospital) need to produce a signed release form for using those materials. Also, shit like this is why we have planned parenthood baby-parts mills, and Fauci profiting for the drugs he pushes-
    Even though the FDA climbs into a [real] doctor’s asshole every time a drug rep drops off samples.

  2. I know this story well and some of those involved. In 1951 nothing existed to prevent this sort of thing, it was not considered unethical. The hospital probably gave this woman health care for free. I hope the hospital sues the family for the care they gave her plus interest, and adjusted for inflation. Like most blacks, this family are parasites .

    I also see a lot of whites staying home collecting covid-unemployment instead of going back to work.
