Federal Agents Found Four Preserved Fetuses In Their Second Trimester During Detroit Raid Of Body Broker’s Warehouse

Horror!

Rathburn operated International Biological Inc.

Federal agents discovered four preserved fetuses in the Detroit warehouse of a man who sold human body parts, confidential photographs reviewed by Reuters show.

The fetuses were found during a December 2013 raid of businessman Arthur Rathburn´s warehouse. The fetuses, which appear to have been in their second trimester, were submerged in a liquid that included human brain tissue.

Rathburn, a former body broker, is accused of defrauding customers by sending them diseased body parts. He has pleaded not guilty and his trial is set for January.

How Rathburn acquired the fetuses and what he intended to do with them is unclear. Rathburn´s lawyers did not respond to requests for comment, and neither the indictment nor other documents made public in his case mention the fetuses.

Indictment

The indictment states IBI would get the bodies and then dismember them to rent out for training. Both Arthur and Elizabeth knew the bodies died from infectious disease, and sometimes “obtained diseased remains from their suppliers at a reduced cost,” according to the documents.

The documents also show IBI would sell to its customers, “falsely representing to those customers that the remains were free from certain infectious diseases” because the customers would not accept some infected remains.

“The scheme included (1) directly profiting from infectious remains supplied to unwitting customers in violation of contractual agreements and (2) not disclosing to customers that IBI failed to take industry standard precautions to prevent potential cross-contamination between infections and non-infectious remains,” the indictment read.

IBI is accused of selling the body parts from January 2007 through December 2013.

The company also failed to take industry-standard precautions when it came to dismembering the body parts, according to the indictment.

Arthur “used a chainsaw, band saw, and reciprocating saw to dismember bodies without taking sanitary precautions,” and “stored human heads by stacking them directly on top of each other without any protective barrier.” WXYZ

U.S. Representatives Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) and Bob Goodlatte (R-VA)

‘This needs to be reviewed,’ said U.S. Representative Marsha Blackburn, a Republican from Tennessee who recently chaired a special U.S. House committee on the use of fetal tissue.

Blackburn recoiled when a Reuters reporter showed her some of the photographs, taken by government officials involved in the raid.

In four of the photos, a crime scene investigator in a hazmat suit uses forceps to lift a different fetus from the brownish liquid. In three other photos, a marker that includes a government evidence identification number lies beside a fetus.

‘The actions depicted in these photos are an insult to human dignity,’ said U.S. Representative Bob Goodlatte, chairman of the House Judiciary Committee.

A Republican from Virginia, Goodlatte said that if individuals ‘violate federal laws and traffic in body parts of unborn children for monetary gain,’ they should be ‘held accountable.’  DailyMail

Legal and virtually unregulated 

Reuters’ report noted that in the United States it is legal to buy and sell cadavers and other body parts except for organs used in transplants and certain fetal tissue. However, the multimillion dollar a year body parts industry operates with minimal regulation, which means that “in most states, including Michigan, public health authorities are not required to regularly inspect body broker facilities.”

For example, a reporter for Reuters was able to purchase two human heads and a cervical spine from Restore Life USA after sending just a couple of emails and paying “$900 plus shipping.”  DailyWire

Baby Body Parts Brokering Companies Ordered To Cease Operations

The case.

The case involves DaVinci Biologics’ sale of fetal tissue products for “valuable consideration” which is illegal under both California (HSC Section 125320) and federal law (42 US Section 289-g-2(a)). From 2009-2015, DaVinci Biologics obtained aborted fetal donations from Planned Parenthood and turned those donations into a profit-driven business.  The company sold hundreds of different “pre-natal products,” for high-margin valuable consideration to companies all over the world, in violation of the law.

The company is also accused of padding packaging, handling and shipping costs to earn extra profits from the sale of fetal parts, and continuing to operate after the State Franchise Tax Board forfeited both DaVinci and DV Biologics’ powers, rights and privileges in July 2015 and November 2014, respectively. LiveAction

These companies are owned by an internationally known crime family.

DV Biologics and DaVinci Biosciences, agreed to settle a lawsuit brought against them by the Orange County prosecutor for illegally selling baby body parts supplied by Planned Parenthood to pharmaceutical companies and schools across America and at least 10 countries for millions of dollars in profit.

The companies avoided a court ruling by settling out of court. The companies, whose owners who are part of an Ecuadoran family convicted of bank fraud amounting to more than $600 million dollars, were forced to pay $7.785 million, turn over more than $10,000 in laboratory equipment and storage containers, and pay $195,000 in civil penalties.

Both companies must cease doing business in California. These companies created catalogues of baby body parts and even ran “specials” to sell to pharmaceutical companies and universities.

“The lawsuit by the Orange County prosecutor began with the report generated by the House Select Committee investigating Planned Parenthood,” said Mat Staver, Founder and Chairman of Liberty Counsel. “Now that the Department of Justice has picked up the investigation of Planned Parenthood, it is time for the source that trafficked in baby body parts to also face justice.

“These despicable acts by these companies and their owners underscores why our client Sandra “Susan” Merritt should be applauded for revealing the seedy underbelly of Planned Parenthood.”

For Merritt’s undercover work, Planned Parenthood attempted to intimidate Liberty Counsel’s client with a retaliatory $16 million suit, and the California Attorney General Xavier Becerra filed a 15-count criminal complaint that is unprecedented in the history of the state. Liberty Counsel is defending Merritt in both cases.

DV Biologics and DaVinci Biosciences are owned by Andres Isaias, who is a part of an internationally known crime family. His uncles, Roberto Isaias and William Isaias, were convicted and sentenced in Ecuador for driving their bank into the ground and then using false documents to get a government bailout.

Their fraud cost the country $661.5 million dollars and more than $200 million in assets were not recovered. Andres’ father, Estefano Isaias Sr., was also involved but not charged, according to Operation Rescue. However, rather than Roberto and William serving eight years in prison, the extended family made $320,000 in political donations between 2010-2014, the vast majority of which went to Democrat candidates, including $90,000 to President Obama’s re-election campaign.

They sought asylum in America with their extended families, and their immigration received expedited treatment from the Hillary Clinton-led State Department. Hillary Clinton’s State Department actively fought Ecuador’s requests to deport the brothers, according to The New York Times. Up to now, many extended family members were involved in these companies. Andres’ father and brother managed the financial aspect of both companies and Andres’ cousin, the son of Roberto Isaias, and additional family members were also involved.

The Orange County complaint alleges Estefano Isaias Jr received profits from the sale of baby body parts. He is also CEO of an online porn business.  CharismaNews
