Supreme Court justices were told on Aug. 4 in an amicus curiae brief that some medical research laboratories use racial quotas in buying body parts from unborn babies killed via live dismemberment in abortions.
“Even though 4-month-old infants in the womb move, kick, suck their thumbs, hiccup, and demonstrate a readily discernable heartbeat and brainwaves, and even though the Constitution guarantees that ‘neither slavery nor involuntary servitude’ shall exist in America nor that any person be deprived of life without due process of law … these same children can be routinely killed through live dismemberment abortions or trafficked and sold for experimental use,” claimed the brief, which was submitted on behalf of undercover journalist David Daleiden and the Center for Medical Progress (CMP).
“These abortions already disproportionately affect poor and minority communities and some laboratories specifically set quotas for aborted fetuses based on race.”
The brief was submitted to the court in the case of Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, in which the state of Mississippi is defending its recently enacted law banning all abortions after the 15th week of a pregnancy.
The state has also encouraged the high court to reverse its 1973 Roe v. Wade decision that legalized abortion nationwide. An estimated 60 million unborn babies have since died as a result of elective abortions made legal by the decision.
The brief further noted that “the vast majority of states in the union, including Mississippi, plus the United States federal government, recognize pre-viability unborn children as human beings under the law equal to any other, for purposes of protection from physical violence and injury.
“Yet, due to this Court’s antiquated, 1900s-era abortion precedents, absent laws like Mississippi’s, unborn-victims-of-violence laws do not protect the very same unborn victims from the violence of predatory businesses that operate with the explicit purposes of killing them by abortion and selling them for experimentation.”
