Why was this man warehousing frozen human fetuses?
By Jayson Veley // Jan 02, 2020

God willing, one day we will look back on how we once treated the unborn and be ashamed of ourselves. But until that day, many among us will continue to treat the most innocent form of life as if it were nothing but a disposable clump of cells, all in the name of “science” and “progress.”


Back in 2017, a man by the name of Arthur Rathburn was put on trial for allegedly defrauding customers by selling them diseased adult body parts, to which he pleaded not guilty. As if that’s not sick enough, Rathburn was also caught with four fetuses in his garage, which he preserved in some type of brown liquid alongside human brain tissue, according to Reuters.

“This needs to be reviewed,” argued Republican Tennessee Representative Masha Blackburn, who is known for her outspoken opposition to the practice of abortion and who has also recently chaired a House committee on the use of fetal tissue. In an interview with Reuters, House Committee chairman Bob Goodlatte added, “The actions depicted in these photos are an insult to human dignity.”

It is worth noting that even though buying and selling body parts is legal in the United States (with the exception of organs used for transplants), trading fetal tissue in order to make a profit remains against the law, and rightfully so. As of right now, it’s not clear how Rathburn was able to get his hands on the fetuses and what his intentions were, but investigators are trying to figure out whether or not he was planning on selling the bodies illegally in order to make a profit.

In order to determine how easy it would be to acquire fetal tissue, a reporter for Reuters bought two human heads and a cervical spine from the Blackburn, Tennessee body broker Restore Life USA. Reuters reported that the entire purchase cost a total of $900 not including shipping, and was made via email.

Rep. Blackburn said that “it is sickening” how easily Restore Life sold the body parts to Reuters. Even still, though, Restore Life USA claims on their website to be an organization “that provides human tissues for medical research and education purposes.”

Of course, no discussion about the sale of fetal tissue would be complete without mentioning Planned Parenthood, which in the past has been caught facilitating the illegal trade of baby organs and limbs for profit. Despite the fact that Planned Parenthood claims to support women and constantly argues that its existence is necessary in order to maintain proper reproductive health, the truth is that the organization is morally bankrupt, and the fact that the American taxpayer is forced to subsidize it makes the situation that much worse. (Related: Planned Parenthood is now teaming up with Satanists to promote abortion.)

Thankfully, the Trump administration appears to be taking matters into their own hands. Early last year, the Department of Justice announced that it was launching a federal investigation into Planned Parenthood’s practices and the alleged sale of fetal body parts. According to Fox News, Justice Department Assistant Attorney General for Legislative Affairs Stephen Boyd has requested documents from the Senate Judiciary Committee. “At this point, the records are intended for investigative use only – we understand that a resolution from the Senate may be required if the Department were to use any of the unredacted materials in a formal legal proceeding, such as a grand jury,” Boyd said.

With any luck, the investigation may finally bring Planned Parenthood to justice, and the law will come down on those who think it’s okay to sell aborted fetal parts for profit. As for Arthur Rathburn, the man who was caught preserving four fetuses in his garage, God himself will deliver justice when he’s trying to get through the pearly gates.
