On June 23, Judicial Watch announced that it received 165 pages of FDA records through a Freedom of Information request and lawsuit revealing that the FDA had contracts with Advanced Bioscience Resources (ABR) for the purchase of aborted baby tissue.

According to Judicial Watch, the documents revealed that the FDA had purchased 8 contracts with ABR between 2012 and 2018 worth a total of $96,370.

A June 28, 2017 email exchange between an FDA contract specialist and an ABR official shows that in one contract the FDA asked for livers and thymuses harvested from aborted children with an age range of 16-24 weeks. It further specifies that “Tissue must be fresh and never frozen.”

“These documents are a horror show,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “These records show that the FDA was trafficking in human fetal parts. Incredibly, there continues to be a push to reopen these monstrous experiments!”
