How Much Revenue Does Barbados Family Planning Association Generate From The Sale Of Aborted Fetuses?

“Aside from any moral issues, it is only natural under the economic realities of being an abortion provider, that the Barbados Family Planning Association would take steps to maximize revenue by capitalizing upon the value of aborted fetuses.” … from this BFP article

Abortion Is A Multi-Billion Dollar Worldwide Industry

Besides being an incredibly divisive social and moral issue, abortion is above all, a multi-billion dollar worldwide industry. Abortion businesses share the concerns of all businesses – such as competition, marketing, fiscal responsibility to shareholders and stakeholders, and minimizing expenses while maximizing profits.

Even Government Sponsored Abortion Is Still Big Business With Revenues, Expenses, Budget & Cashflow Concerns

Government-supported abortion clinics may not have to worry about competition, but all the other big business factors still apply – including accountability to stakeholders and covering the costs of running a business: such as salaries, purchase or lease of space, fixtures & equipment, maintainence, insurance, electricity & water, security and consumables – both medical and admin related. Annual overhead of a large abortion operation can run into millions of dollars before one penny is made.

That abortion is big business can be very simply shown just by opening the telephone book in any North American city and seeing the dozens of advertisements – or going online to “www.yellowpages.com” and searching for “abortion services” or “women’s clinics”. A full page phonebook ad in just one suburb of New York City costs upwards of US$10,000 per month. In the USA, that translates into mega-millions of abortion advertising dollars earned annually by the phone companies. (If 100 city phonebooks sold 5 full pages each month @ $5000 per page, that would equal US$30 million per year – but there’s a lot more than 100 cities in the United States! And that’s only phonebook adverts.)

Targeted Clients – The Lonely, The Frightened, The Betrayed

Some family planning / abortion clinics are able to afford full page ads – some have only smaller ads, but all advertise to their target market: pregnant women who are considering an abortion. The lonely, frightened, betrayed, confused and distressed are prime clients – so abortion advertising is designed to appeal to their needs.

Directing Advertising To Targeted Clients

Yellow Pages and web-based advertisements tell potential clients that they will be looked after by caring staff and doctors, that the businesses are concerned for the well-being of their clients. Even the names of the businesses (the “brand names”) are designed to appeal to the target market… “Mary’s Place”, “Women’s Shelter Clinic”, “Early Options”, “Park Med”. Advertising images feature flowers or smiling, confident young women who are either the caring clinic staff or customers talking about how caring the abortion clinic staffers are. The message is “I did it, and I’m fine physically, mentally and emotionally. You can do it too. These people care about you and they can help.”

The adverts also inform that “financing is available” along with payment via Visa, Mastercard and American Express credit cards.

Abortion Industry Economics Transformed – Aborted Fetuses Are Now A Valuable Commodity

In the last decade, the abortion industry has seen the rise of incredible new profits in the sale of aborted fetuses for scientific and medical purposes, as well as for use in the manufacture of costmetics.

Aborted fetuses that were once a liability with a cost to dispose of them, have been transformed by Stem Cell clinics and cosmetics manufacturers into an abundant source of revenue generation. This has significantly increased the profits potential throughout the abortion industry.

How Much Revenue From Selling Aborted Bajan Fetuses? To Whom Are They Sold?

Aside from any moral issues, it is only natural under the economic realities of being an abortion provider, that the Barbados Family Planning Association would take steps to maximize revenue by capitalizing upon the value of aborted fetuses.

As well, now that the press has declared Barbados to be the “Stem Cell Capital Of The Developed World”, it is no secret that we have created a ready market for the sale of aborted Bajan fetuses right here on the island. That’s what I call “Smart Business Planning” !

So… we Bajan citizens want to know…

– How much money does the Barbados Family Planning Association generate from the sale of aborted Bajan fetuses?

– To whom are the aborted Bajan fetuses sold?

Three Men Know The Answers To These Questions…

  1. passin thru

    Oh oh!

    This is going to be an interesting thread.

  2. MWsam

    I never thought about what happens to the baby afterwards. I guess I thought it was thrown away.

  3. Red Lake Lassie

    This is a horrible article!!!!!!!!!!!!

    You shouldn’t be asking about this. Leave it alone. We don’t care. we don’t want to know.

  4. RRRicky

    Someplace on this blog somebody said that they wouldn’t throw any stones at George Griffith but they wouldn’t have him over for dinner and they for sure wouldn’t vote for him.

    Me too. No stones. No dinner and sure as anything I would not have an abortion person for my elected member in parlament.

  5. Andrew 8754

    Shouldn’t we be asking, does any abortion provider sell… rather than How much they get? Go easy BFP don’t let your passion get to far ahead of the evidence.

  6. Lady Anon

    “How Much Revenue Does Barbados Family Planning Association Generate From The Sale Of Aborted Fetuses?”…This title is misleading. It implies that the BFPA sells aborted foetuses, and I do not believe this is the case.

    If BFP will go down this road, also ask the same question of the doctors in private practice, at the hospitals etc.

    This speculation should be left alone.

  7. BFP

    How Much Revenue…?

    Zero?

    $1000?

    $100,000?

    You can take issue with the leading nature of the question – but the question is valid and needs to be answered.

    So what’s the answer?

  8. West Side Davie

    Does the way the question is formed indicate that BFP already knows? Tricky bunch that BFP. They might already have part of the answer.

  9. West Side Davie

    Lady Anon says

    ‘ “How Much Revenue Does Barbados Family Planning Association Generate From The Sale Of Aborted Fetuses?”…This title is misleading. It implies that the BFPA sells aborted foetuses, and I do not believe this is the case.’

    I am curious, Lady Anon. Why do you believe that the BFPA does not sell fetuses? Why shouldn’t they if it generates money to help run the clinic?

  10. titilayo

    LadyAnon, if you’ve spent enough time around BFP, you should realise that the writers here ask that sort of loaded question all the time. Although I think that this website can and oft-times does serve a useful purpose, I really deplore some of their tactics. But I guess any media outlet, formal or otherwise, does what they think is appropriate to advance their particular point of view and agenda.

    On the positive side, in the past year or so, BFP has taught me more about the different kinds of logical fallacies than a college course in critical thinking! 🙂

  11. Lady Anon

    I have no evidence, I just don’t believe that they do. For me, it would be a very distasteful situation if they did.

  12. RRRicky

    Why would it be distasteful, Lady Anon?

    Would it be any more distasteful than what happened to create the aborted fetus? Why should it be distastful to put the fetus to good use?

  13. Lady Anon

    BFP…not every valid question needs an answer. I, however agree with West Side Davie…you probably already know the answer.

  14. God Bless David

    I don’t think it’s a valid question, as it’s not based on any credible premiss…it’s just the yellowest of yellow “journalism”….pure tripe. It’s like asking “how many children does Santa Clause molest as he makes his rounds delivering presents?” Give me a break…

  15. BFP

    There we go, folks!

    We changed the title of this piece so all those concerned about our “yellow journalism” can get past that very minor issue of the wording of the title of this piece.

    Now, let’s get down to business…

    So we ask Prime Minister Owen Arthur, Health Minister Dr. Jerome Walcott and Barbados Family Planning Association Executive Director and BLP Candidate for St. Philip North George Griffith…

    How much revenue – if any – does the Barbados Family Planning Association generate from the sale of aborted Bajan fetuses – and to whom are they sold?

  16. BFP

    … And please be very careful to ensure your answer is accurate, Mr. Prime Minister…

  17. BFP

    … and bye the way folks – insofar as the question being based upon a valid premise, we think it is.

    1/ The abortion industry worldwide is gearing up to turn a disposal problem (aborted fetuses) into cashflow. This is happening all over, and still there is such a shortage of fetuses for stem cell uses that women are being paid to become pregnant and abort in Eastern Europe.

    2/ Barbados is fully committed to its leading position in the stem cell industry.

    3/ The sale of aborted fetuses would provide a significant source of revenue to the Barbados Family Planning Association – so much so that it would be difficult for Executive Director and BLP Candidate George Griffith to ignore such a potential revenue stream.

    4/ There would seem to be no moral reservations for the sale of aborted Bajan fetuses by the organization that produced them in the first place. Indeed, Mr. Griffiths could probably justify his position that it would be more “moral” to make use of the aborted fetuses than to burn or bury them.

    5/ If it is the position of the BFPA or of the Government that aborted Bajan fetuses are not to be supplied for use in cosmetic stem cell clinics, this would seem to be more of a political position than a moral one.

    6/ So once again… we want to know, Mr. Prime Minister… Are we? For how much? To whom?

  18. Are you certain that BFPA even provides abortions? So far as I am aware IPPF has never included this among their clinics’ services.

    If they do not provide abortions obviously they can have no foetuses to sell and no revenue.

    It would then be equally wrong to term George Griffiths an “abortion provider” which is one small step from damning him as an abortionist.

    This whole thread seems wilfully mischievous.

    It’s tied up with the scandal at IRM, Villa Nova. Should we not concentrate on damage control to Barbados’ image?

  19. BFP

    Freespeech says

    “Are you certain that BFPA even provides abortions? So far as I am aware IPPF has never included this among their clinics’ services.”

    The answer is “Yes” and as far as IPPF “never including abortion among their clinics’ services”….

    …. are you nuts?

  20. Jerome Hinds

    It seems as though Owen and his party has some questions to answer. Keeping silent or appearing clueless would not help at this stage ‘ the egg’ has already broken! It will splash all over their faces!!!

  21. BFP-

    If BFPA provide abortions, as you maintain, it is surprising they do not confirm this in their list of operations performed, (bfpa.net) viz.
    “Tubal ligation, endometrical biopsy, Dilation & Curettage (D&C) and Loop Cone biopsy.”

    Similarly IPPF states with respect to abortions:
    “Where abortion is permitted we TRAIN providers in safe and appropriate procedures, including medical abortion and counselling.” (www.ippf.org)

    Presumably you have firsthand knowledge that BFPA conducts abortions and it is not just hearsay? If so one must accept your contention.

  22. One Who Knows

    I know well that BFPA do abortions. The website is too polite to say so. thats all.

  23. BFP

    TITLE CHANGED BACK TO ORIGINAL

    Hello Folks

    We had a little talk with someone last night – and as a result of that talk, we have now changed our title from the revised “How Much Revenue – If Any – Does Barbados Family Planning Association Generate From The Sale Of Aborted Fetuses?” to the original…

    “How Much Revenue Does Barbados Family Planning Association Generate From The Sale Of Aborted Fetuses?”

    Either way, all the original questions stand – but we are now more certain than ever that the questions need to be answered.

  24. akabozik

    Freespeech: It look like the BFPA website give a clue about what everybody on dis island know what they do.

    An Freespeech, you not from BDS, right? Everybody know BFPA does abortions. That is the place.

    A-Z Health Guide from WebMD

    Dilation and curettage (D&C)

    A dilation and curettage (D&C) is a procedure that is done to remove tissue from inside the uterus. During a D&C, the vagina is spread open, and a scraping or suction instrument is passed through the cervix and into the uterus to remove tissue from the lining of the uterus (endometrium).

    A D&C may be done to:

    Remove tissue that remains after a woman has had a miscarriage.
    Remove tissue that may be causing abnormal vaginal bleeding. The tissue can then be examined for any abnormalities.
    End a pregnancy (abortion).
    A D&C is usually done in a hospital without requiring an overnight stay. Pain medication is given before the procedure. Many women choose to have a general anesthetic that makes them unconscious during the procedure.

    from another internet page…

    Dilatation (Dilation) and Curettage (D&C)

    In this technique, the cervix is dilated or stretched to permit the insertion of a loop shaped steel knife. The body of the baby is cut into pieces and removed and the placenta is scraped off the uterine wall. [14] Blood loss from D & C, or “mechanical” curettage is greater than for suction aspiration, as is the likelihood of uterine perforation and infection. [15]

    THEREFORE D&C is sometimes for abortion and sometimes for not, but it dont matter cause everybody in BDS know that girl needs to get rid of a baby go to BFPA

  25. akabozzik
    OK, So everybody know…
    But how come you only quote the part of WebMD that suit you, carefully omitting the following:

    “It is a RARELY PERFORMED type of surgical abortion done in the first trimester of a pregnancy.

    “It is used for for diagnosis and treatment of various uterine conditions. It is commonly used to obtain tissue for microscopic evaluation to rule out cancer and diagnose heavy menstrual bleeding, endometrial polyps and uterine fibroids.”

    Suction evacuation is the preferred technique of choice for early abortion as it does not have the risk of infection that curettage does.

  26. One Who Knows

    Bystander:

    D&C is no longer used for abortions, although it is still common as a “clean up” procedure where aspiration has failed to remove all of the POC (product of conception). Most early abortions including those done at the BFPA are performed using the modern vacuum technique which has a far lower rate of unintended side effects such as perforation of the uterine wall.

  27. “Fetal Cells Nix Rules, Fix Hearts”

    http://www.wired.com/news/medtech/0,1286,67763,00.html

    By Kristen Philipkoski| [Wired]

    Ten heart failure patients who received controversial fetal stem cell injections are all showing signs of rapid recovery three months after the treatment, surgeons who performed the first-time procedure said this weekend.

    The treatments, which took place in Ecuador, have raised sharp ethical questions over the mere use of fetal stem cells, which some oppose on principle. But the case has also raised new concerns over rushing forward with unproven stem cell treatments.

    Frederico Benetti, one of the surgeons on the study and pioneer of so-called beating heart surgery presented the data on Saturday at the International Society for Minimally Invasive Cardiothoracic Surgery annual meeting in New York.

    “We need to be very cautious because this is the first time in the world these cells are implanted into the heart of patients,” Benetti said. “We are very fortunate all patients are alive at three months. It is safe and that is the most important thing. We also demonstrated the patients improved a lot.”

    Benetti has also had success with cells taken from bone marrow. But the fetal cells appear to be more effective, he said. “The change we observed in fetal cells in one week we saw in autologous cells after 20 days (to) one month. Clinically the patients look so much better. Implanting fetal cells is so much more powerful.”

    The results may lend credibility to a Barbados clinic called the Institute for Regenerative Medicine, which supplied the cells and funded the study. The island clinic offers fetal stem cells for a $25,000 fee for indications from aging to spinal cord injury.

    The clinic is controversial according to some scientists because the fetal cell therapies have not been proven safe and effective by controlled clinical trials necessary for approval in the United States and other Western countries.

    Barnett Suskind, CEO of the Institute for Regenerative Medicine, said he agrees therapy using the cells needs more study. But he is confident in the safety of the treatments based on data gathered by Soviet scientists who first developed the treatments in the ’80s.

    “We spent four months looking at the documents and I had Leonard (Makowka, the company’s senior scientific consultant) go through them and after reviewing approximately 1,700 case studies going back 10 years, we saw no adverse side effects,” Suskind said. “We decided we can conclude it’s safe with that size of data.”

    Scientists are tough to convince, however, without evidence in the form of controlled, published clinical studies.

    “I am skeptical of anyone who goes straight to patients off-shore and does not publish animal data first and then go through rigorous screening in this country to conduct a proper clinical trial,” said Evan Snyder, program director in stem cells and regeneration at the Burnham Institute in La Jolla, California. I regard them as intellectually weak and reckless at best and cowards and exploiters at worst.”

    Snyder said he is willing to keep an open mind once the scientists describe the cells in detail and provide more data with double blind controls.

    He and his colleagues reported in December 2004 in the Proceedings of the National Academies of Science that stem cells can prevent cells from dying as well as decrease inflammation and scarring. The fetal cells could be having a similar effect, he said, but until the data is published he remains skeptical.

    “Until they are published in a peer-reviewed mainstream journal, they do not exist,” Snyder said.

    The patients in Benetti’s trial were injected with up to 80 million fetal cells donated by consenting women who had undergone elective abortions or spontaneous miscarriages, the researchers reported. The women were not compensated, and the cells were screened for pathogens. The injections increased the patients’ heart-pumping efficiency 41 percent on average, the surgeons reported. The distance the patients could walk nonstop increased by 72 percent. After three months, they could walk 16 percent farther.

    Advanced heart failure is usually fatal. The patients’ only hope would have been heart transplantation, which is rarely performed in Ecuador, where the surgeries took place at the Luis Vernaza Hospital in Guayaquil.

    A handful of similar clinics are operating in underdeveloped countries, including Medra in the Dominican Republic. Suskind’s Institute of Regenerative Medicine, however, may be one of the few, if not the only off-shore clinic recording data with at least the intention of publishing in scientific journals.

    Dr. William Rader, Medra’s medical director, did not return repeated phone calls.

    The Barbados institute intends to fund trials in spinal cord injury, diabetes and diabetic retinopathy over the next year, Suskind said. “

    Hey! I am currently 17 years old. I know you may not think that I know what I am talking about but, I do. I think that it is wrong to Abort a baby. How can you do that to something so cute and small, it didn’t even get to live its life. I know that if I ever make a mistake in my life Abortion is not the option for me, I couldn’t imagine that. I think that if I have kids later on in life and they are too young to take care of it. I will be there for them and tell them everyday that everything will be ok. and that I will be there to help them raise there child. But Abortion will not be there option either. Unless it is the matter of Life and Death.

    Thank you for your time.

    Aside from any moral issues, it is only natural under the economic realities of being an abortion provider, that the Barbados Family Planning Association would take steps to maximize revenue by capitalizing upon the value of aborted fetuses.

    So… we Bajan citizens want to know…

    – How much money does the Barbados Family Planning Association generate from the sale of aborted Bajan fetuses?

    – To whom are the aborted Bajan fetuses sold?

    Dear BFP: Since You are always accusing the “lap-dog” press of being lazy.

    Now an assignment for you. Pick up the telephone, call BFPA and ask them the questions at teh head of your article yourself.

    Report back to your readers a week from today.
