Ben Carson: Accusation I Used Aborted Babies In Research Is A False Left-Wing Media Attack
Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson has doubled down on his defense against claims that he conducted fetal tissue research in the early 1990s, a revelation that has come to light on the heels of the scandal at Planned Parenthood — where unborn babies are purposefully killed in order to use their body parts for research purposes.
Carson has been critical of not only the Planned Parenthood abortion business for selling aborted babies and their body parts for research, but he said defenders of that have oversold the benefits of fetal tissue research.
As LifeNews reported, according to the Washington Post, Dr. Jen Gunter, of pro-abortion medical company Kaiser Permanente, recently uncovered a paper Carson co-authored in 1992. In the paper, he and other doctors conducting research say they used “human choroid plexus ependyma and nasal mucosa from two fetuses aborted in the ninth and 17th week of gestation.”
