How much is an aborted foetus worth?

Whole, it depends on the stage at abortion and whether there are any deformities (people with STDs for example, are usually screened out from the sales process). I’ve seen horses treated with more respect, for real.

Organ by organ?

Let’s see, in America the price listing for refined human RNA is;

$63 per major region (breast, uterus, penis, brain, umbilical cord…)

and it varies by purpose too. This was only one example of one type. Will they be testing the cell line for soft drinks? Perhaps using it in vaccine manufacture? Using the collagen in beauty products? [Seaweed contains collagen, there’s no excuse, but they oddly keep that ingredient fact of consumer choice off-label].

From that last link, bioethics.net;

“However, for those women who voluntarily elect for whatever reason do donate their aborted fetuses to science, we certainly ought not to discourage them. It can for many turn a gut-wrenching decision into something that makes them feel they have given something back to society. However, dialogue is necessary as to what sorts of uses those precious resources ought best to be used.”

There is a big cavernous difference between cancer research and Pepsi cola. One is science on the scalpel’s edge of ethics permissible for a higher end and the other is multi-billion dollar company profiteering R&D who can fund their own work without a problem.

Here’s a good review paper on the other side of abortion from the UK’s Society for the Protection of Unborn Children:

Did you know for example, there is a branch of PTSD called Post Abortion Trauma? aka Post Abortion Stress Syndrome? It isn’t accepted by the politicized APA, but it’s treated by counselors and psychologists just the same;

“Nevertheless, any event that causes trauma can indeed result in PTSD, and abortion is no exception.”
