How exactly fetal tissue is used for medicine: "One of the earliest advances with fetal tissue was to use fetal kidney cells to create the first poliovirus vaccines, which are now estimated to save 550,000 lives worldwide every year."

Again, 100% pro choice, and I'm sure that the donation for research is done with the expectation that the fetus be treated with some sort of dignity.

The president of Planned Parenthood makes just over a half million a year. Planned Parenthood probably doesn't make a "profit" like a Catholic Church doesn't make a "profit". She's there specifically because of her political leanings, which I also find quite repulsive, but I wouldn't want the job myself so I won't cast a stone.

I have personally cared for women who have had abortions, nice try with that. I don't see how caring about them would make me know about a form, so your segue sucked and you've attempted to demean my opinion through a personal attack while claiming that I was unaware of a process in the same breath, which have no relation to one-another. Yes, I'm aware that you have to sign a form to give away deceased body parts. It's standard practice and I'm not against it.

I certainly think people choosing to make decisions about their own body is ok. I can't understand how someone who supports freedom would try to restrict what someone does to their own body.

You don't know how to form words coming from your own mouth, so don't attempt to have your assumptions come out of mine. Again, for the third time, I'm 100% pro-choice. I'm 100% organ donation. I understand freedom from a far "freer" viewpoint than yours, so your point is laughable. I don't wish for a nanny-state, and I don't want a corporation run state. I don't think that anyone has the right to tell you what to do with your body, and I don't think that anyone has the right to tell me what I can do with mine. The point that you quoted before you reply doesn't even have anything to do with what you're saying? What are you saying?
