The Center for Medical Progress exposed a laboratory in University of California San Diego for its desire to obtain “fresh” human fetal pancreas tissues.
In a tweet, CMP declared that this lab will buy aborted baby parts “from ANYBODY–even without bothering to check who they are emailing.”
Apparently the government-funded laboratories at @UCSanDiego are so greedy for "fresh" aborted baby body parts, they will try to buy them from ANYBODY–even without bothering to check who they are emailing. @HHSGov please STOP this now! #PPSellsBabyPartshttps://t.co/oQDqRcxlK9 pic.twitter.com/8vM7S2o47d

CMP highlighted several parts of an email chain when corresponding with this laboratory.
In the first entry of the email chain, Agnieszka D’Antonio-Chronowska, a postdoctoral researcher at this lab, asked CMP to provide “fetal pancreas tissue from 4-5 donors” for analysis.
CMP replied to research assistant’s request stating that the fetal samples are available from “termination clinics in San Diego and Riverside” up to 24 weeks’ gestation.
The center added that “market rates for fresh samples right now tend to range from $500 to $700”, while also detailing additional costs for transportation.
D’Antonio-Chronowska responded by asking for a transportation option that has the “fastest possible delivery.”
Unbeknownst to the research, CMP is a staunchly pro-life group that was attempting to expose this lab’s questionable research policies.
The lab tried reaching out to CMP by phone, but no one answered. The UCLA San Diego-based lab was then requesting for “heart specimens from 3 donors.”
CMP’s Executive Director David Daleiden revealed that his organization put in a public records request for all documents “reflecting UC San Diego’s purchase of aborted baby body parts” from local sellers.
Daleiden stated, “We asked the UC San Diego researchers questions to find out more details about their taxpayer-funded involvement in the market for aborted body parts and ethically challenged fetal experimentation.”
The university released a statement defending the lab’s behavior:
UC San Diego researchers sought fetal pancreas and heart tissue to better understand how each person’s unique set of genes contributes to disease risk throughout life, in particular the development of diabetes and cardiovascular disease. Some diseases begin in utero, thus the importance of studying organs and disease at the fetal stage.
The university statement added that UCSD “intends to comply with all legal and ethical requirements” for the obtainment of fetal tissue as required by the National Institutes of Health.
Texas Political Establishment Attempts to Derail Shelley Luther’s Campaign
The special election for Texas’ Senate District 30 is on pace to be one of the most heated races in the Lone Star State.
At a candidate forum on September 18, 2020, Shelley Luther, the Dallas salon owner who was jailed for opening her business in defiance of Governor Greg Abbott’s shutdown order, confronted outgoing State Senator Pat Fallon.
Fallon vacated his seat and is now backing a successor in State Representative Drew Springer.
“We don’t want somebody who’s going to be at odds with our Republican governor,” Fallon said September 18 at the Grayson County Republican Women’s Club.
I didn’t support some of the things that he has done about opening up. … So, he’s made some mistakes. He’s our Republican governor, the 80/20 rule … because you’re not going to get any bills passed unless the governor signs them.
“Let me make something clear. I am accountable to my fellow citizens in Senate District 30. Not our Governor,” Luther responded on September 19 on Facebook:
This is exactly what is wrong with Austin. Our politicians are more loyal to Abbott than us, even when they disagree with him.
I will work with Governor Abbott when he is fighting to protect the liberty of Texans, and I will oppose him when he pushes unilateral dictates that shut down our local businesses.
Fallon and Luther had a tense exchange, which was caught on video.
“You want me to go all in on this race?” Fallon questioned Luther. “I have been 5 percent in on this race. You want me to go all in on it, I’m welcome to.”
“This has become a straight-up fight between Abbott and the ‘Kumbaya’ Professional Political Class vs. the grassroots and people who remember what limited government and principles should look like,” opined conservative activist Mike Openshaw.
“Respectfully, being willing to be jailed for fighting over-reaching government shows principle; that counts for something, Patrick,” Openshaw continued.
Luther has recently received endorsements from conservative Collin County Judge Chris Hill and Young Conservatives of Texas. Springer, on the other hand, received an endorsement from the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, which asserted that Luther was going down a “far right” path.
A Republican is expected to carry the senate district, which may still require a runoff if the leading candidate does not get enough votes during the first round of the special election.
Election Day will be on September 29.
Luther is viewed as the truly conservative option and many believe she could help break the political status quo in Austin that has kept conservative legislation from ever being passed.
