A new Dr. Mengele: UC scientist uses brains of aborted babies for research

Dr. Josef Mengele, the Nazi German officer and physician, is rightly reviled by history for his cruelty and inhumanity in performing deadly experiments and genetic research on concentration camp prisoners, many of whom were Jews.
But Mengele is walking among us today in the form of a professor of cellular and molecular medicine at the University of California at San Diego (UCSD) named Lawrence Goldstein, who uses the brains “harvested” from aborted — and sometimes still alive — human babies for his research. The brains are supplied by Planned Parenthood in San Diego, to which Goldstein is a donor. Ironically, Goldstein is himself a Jew.

In a March 2, 2016 press release, the courageous Center for Medical Progress that uncovered the heinous practices at Planned Parenthood, says:

The star witness for Planned Parenthood at today’s hearing on the bioethics of fetal body parts harvesting, UC San Diego’s Dr. Lawrence Goldstein, obtains his aborted fetal brains from Planned Parenthood of the Pacific Southwest in San Diego, CA. Dr. Goldstein is also a long-time financial donor to the same Planned Parenthood in San Diego. Neither of these critical facts are mentioned anywhere in Dr. Goldstein’s sworn written testimony for the hearing.
“This is more of the same from Planned Parenthood and their political cronies: a total lack of transparency and false advertising to cover up troubling revelations about their baby-parts-for-profit scheme,” says David Daleiden, CMP Project Lead. “In reality, Planned Parenthood’s taxpayer-funded crime syndicate for baby parts harvesting is on full display in this hearing -– a taxpayer-funded researcher at a government school harvesting brains from late-term babies at a state-subsidized Planned Parenthood abortion clinic. The Investigative Panel must ask Dr. Goldstein the hard questions about how much money he gave Planned Parenthood in exchange for aborted babies’ brains, and what Planned Parenthood may have done to their abortion process to accommodate his orders.”

According to Wikipedia, Goldstein receives grant funding from the federal government’s National Institutes of Health (NIH), the Johns Hopkins ALS Center, the HighQ Foundation, and the California Institute for Regenerative Medicine — a California state agency that defies the NIH (and therefore the federal government) by funding stem-cell research that creates human-animal hybrids by growing human tissues inside pigs and sheep.

For Newt, Human Life Begins at Implantation, not Fertilization

Yesterday, in an interview with ABC News’ Jake Tapper, 68-year-old Newt Gingrich — who has surged to become the frontrunner in the race to be the GOP’s presidential nominee — breaks away from many pro-life groups who believe that human life begins at fertilization.
Instead, Gingrich says his stance is that life begins at the point of successful implantation of the fertilized egg. In so doing, Gingrich — a recent (2009) convert to Catholicism — is also dissenting from the Roman Catholic Church’s position.

This is what Gingrich said to Tapper:

“Well, I think the question of being implanted is a very big question. My friends who have ideological positions that sound good don’t then follow through the logic of: ‘So how many additional potential lives are they talking about? What are they going to do as a practical matter to make this real?’

I think that if you take a position when a woman has fertilized egg and that’s been successfully implanted that now you’re dealing with life. because otherwise you’re going to open up an extraordinary range of very difficult questions

Implantation and successful implantation [is when human life begins for me]. In addition I would say that I’ve never been for embryonic stem cell research per se. I have been for, there are a lot of different ways to get embryonic stem cells. I think if you can get embryonic stem cells for example from placental blood if you can get it in ways that do not involve the loss of a life that’s a perfectly legitimate avenue of approach.

What I reject is the idea that we’re going to take one life for the purpose of doing research for other purposes and I think that crosses a threshold of de-humanizing us that’s very very dangerous.”

Despite his departure from their stance on when life begins, ever confident of himself, Gingrich is sure that he can win the vote of pro-life activists. Just as he’s sure that he will the GOP nominee.
Did you know that Newt Gingrich‘s birth name is Newton Leroy McPherson?
UPDATE (Dec. 6, 2011):
In a new statement the Gingrich campaign sent to LifeNews.com over the weekend, Newt now says he believes life begins at conception.
