Government Raid Revealed Baby Bodies Preserved in Warehouse

Dec 27, 2017

Government investigators found four bodies, appearing to be second-trimester infants, preserved in a Detroit cadaver warehouse owned by Arthur Rathburn. The raid was triggered by information showing that he had provided human organs with hepatitis and HIV instead of healthy tissue to paying clients in December 2013, according to Reuters. Rathburn has pled "not guilty" and is facing trial next month for defrauding both clients and donors.

The indictment Rathburn is currently facing, however, does not even mention these four prenatal bodies. Nor is it clear where they came from or who he was providing them to. The infants were lifted out of a brownish liquid, which documents indicated "included human brain tissue," according to Reuters, which included intentionally pixilated pictures because of their graphic nature in the report.

Liberty Counsel is calling for an investigation into how these babies were obtained by Rathburn. He wasn’t running a charity. It’s possible these were aborted children. It is also very possible that the illegal profiting and trafficking of aborted human organs is much more widespread than the public knows.

These four children deserve an investigation, and if they were among other aborted children who were sold for profit, those children deserve justice as well. We must end aborted organ trafficking and the first step is a detailed investigation.
