54 aborted babies dissected for study

Pro-life activist William Brennan describes a study that took place in the 1970s:

In an experiment on human sexual development in Canada, during the 1970s, aborted babies were dissected of their testes, ovaries and adrenals. 54 babies were involved – 33 males and 21 females ranging in age from 10 to 25 weeks gestation. The organs were “minced, homogenized, and subjected to histochemical analysis.” It was meant to learn about “the onset of sexual differentiation by comparing concentration of sex steroids in fetal testes with those in the ovaries and adrenals.”
