Legal watchdog group Judicial Watch has released new revelations about the U.S. government’s involvement in purchasing the bodies and body parts of aborted babies for research.

Nearly 600 pages of documents published by Judicial Watch earlier this month detail the efforts of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to buy aborted babies’ bodies in order to test experimental drugs and create “humanized” mice.

Government officials often sought babies killed as late as 24 weeks gestation, by which time many unborn children are viable outside of the womb. The contract between the government and a fetal parts company investigated by Judicial Watch was terminated  by Trump administration in 2018.

Between 2012 and 2018, the FDA spent tens of thousands of taxpayer dollars to buy aborted babies from Advanced Bioscience Resources (ABR) a notorious California-based company that specializes in trafficking aborted babies’ bodies. ABR is known for buying potentially illegally harvested body parts from Planned Parenthood and has been probed by Congress.
