The federal health agency that has long been headed by Dr. Anthony Fauci, now the Biden administration’s chief medical adviser, spend more than $400,000 to fund several experiments in which the scalps of aborted fetuses were grafted onto live mice and rats.
The National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, which Fauci has led since the 1980s, funded about a dozen researchers at the University of Pittsburgh, who went on to publish their findings last fall in the journal, Nature.
According to the scientific journal, the purpose of the experiments was to determine the predisposition of human skin to develop infections utilizing rat and mouse “models.” The research involved utilizing “full-thickness fetal skin” to “provide a platform for studying human skin infections,” researchers wrote.
The researchers also documented that “human skin tissues” that were used in their experiments were taken “from the scalp and dorsum” of “donors,” which were fetuses that had been aborted.
“Full-thickness human fetal skin was processed via removal of excess fat tissues attached to the subcutaneous layer of the skin, then engrafted over the rib cage, where the mouse skin was previously excised,” the researchers wrote.
In an abstract, researchers noted:
The human skin provides the first line of host protection against environmental injury and host defense against pathogens. Several emerging pathogens, including community-associated methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (CA-MRSA), target the skin for infection and disease. Also, vector-borne infectious diseases such as Lyme disease and dengue fever are transmitted via inoculation into the skin by ticks and mosquitos, respectively. Interactions between keratinocytes, skin fibroblasts, and cutaneous immune cells are involved in initiating the systemic immune response and abrogate pathogen replication and dissemination to other sites of replication. Thus, the skin provides an ideal vaccination target for inducing immunity against various pathogens, as reflected by the development of several novel vaccine technologies directed at the skin, including skin-patch intradermal vaccines.
It adds: “Rats are a major model specie for long-term (greater than one year) studies; thus, humanized rat models that combine human skin, human immune cells, and human lymphoid structures are being explored for use in long-term in vivo studies of human skin-immune interactions.”
As documented in graphic photos, some of the grafted fetal tissue grew into “adult-like human skin,” while other grafts went on to form “human skin appendages” that included “human hair evident at 12 weeks post-transplantation,” the study noted.
Just the News reported that the scientists associated with the experimentation did not respond to requests for comment, nor did the NIAID or Fauci respond to inquiries seeking additional information regarding the funding for the project, as well as “how often the NIAID funds projects using aborted fetal remains.”
That said, according to federal expenditure records, Fauci’s agency provided $430,000 in funding to the gruesome research project between 2018 and 2019.
The team’s findings were apparently published last year without much fanfare, generating “relatively little attention outside of pro-life circles,” Just the News said, adding that the research was mentioned earlier this week during a Pennsylvania state legislative hearing on fetal research and experimentation.
During the hearing, David Daleiden, a pro-life activist and undercover journalist noted for his exposure, in undercover videos, last decade of Planned Parenthood execs discussing the exchange of fetal body parts, ripped the research. During testimony, Daleiden accused the scientists of scalping 5-month-old aborted fetuses and grafting their scalps onto the backs of lab rats.”
