The four preborn babies were in a warehouse belonging to a dealer in human body parts.
There’s no known connection between the corpses of these four preborn babies and Planned Parenthood, but the fact that a seller of body parts was keeping the bodies indicates that there is a market for them. The story is so shocking that the Reuters report seems to take it seriously and take Republican politicians seriously without trying to marginalize their viewpoint.
Reuters reports, “Exclusive: Federal agents found fetuses in body broker’s warehouse.”
Federal agents discovered four preserved fetuses in the Detroit warehouse of a man who sold human body parts, confidential photographs reviewed by Reuters show.
The fetuses were found during a December 2013 raid of businessman Arthur Rathburn’s warehouse. The fetuses, which appear to have been in their second trimester, were submerged in a liquid that included human brain tissue.
Rathburn, a former body broker, is accused of defrauding customers by sending them diseased body parts. He has pleaded not guilty and his trial is set for January.
How Rathburn acquired the fetuses and what he intended to do with them is unclear. Rathburn’s lawyers did not respond to requests for comment, and neither the indictment nor other documents made public in his case mention the fetuses.[…]
“The actions depicted in these photos are an insult to human dignity,” said U.S. Representative Bob Goodlatte, chairman of the House Judiciary Committee. A Republican from Virginia, Goodlatte said that if individuals “violate federal laws and traffic in body parts of unborn children for monetary gain,” they should be “held accountable.”
