Abortion clinic owner pleased by research on aborted babies

A writer who visited an abortion clinic spoke to Maitland Cook, director of the clinic. She summarizes their conversation:

“Mr. Cook was also very pleased to say that the Marsden Hospital in London- the well-known cancer hospital – used many of their aborted fetuses for cancer research. The fetuses were refrigerated and collected on a weekly basis by the Marsden van. He emphasized how pleased he was about this because it was nice to think of foetal material being put to constructive use. Women were not usually told that their fetuses were being used in this way, since talking to women about this kind of thing when they were coming for an abortion might be distressing.”
