7.8 Million Settlement Against Biomedical Companies Accused of Profiting from Fetal Tissue Emmanuel December 12, 2017 Abortion, News The sale of fetal tissue that is procured from abortions is a barbaric and ghoulish act. This is something that needs to be addressed before anything else is accomplished here. It’s enough to make the strongest of stomachs want to retch. It’s absolutely abhorrent that organizations like Planned Parenthood would effectively coerce people into having this awful procedure done. For them to make money off of it is an entirely different form of evil. Two California companies that were in the business of biomedical procurement have reached a multi-million dollar settlement with the Orange Country district attorney’s office following allegation that they illegally profited from the sale of fetal tissue. The settlement requires DaVinci Biosciences and DV Biologics — a sister company — to permanently close its operations in California and pay $7.8 million through donations and biological materials to a medical school, reports the Orange County Register. The companies are also required to admit liability and to pay $195,000 in civil penalties. “This settlement seized all profits from DV Biologics and DaVinci Biosciences, which they acquired by viewing body parts as a commodity and illegally selling fetal tissues for valuable consideration,” District Attorney Tony Rackauckas said. The civil lawsuit accused the companies of profiting from at least 500 sales to research laboratories between 2012 and 2015 and selling the fetal body parts for a profit of more than $1.5 million from 2013 to 2015. The Register reported in October 2016: According to the lawsuit, the companies hired sales and marketing staffers and pushed them to meet revenue goals through discount promotions such as “summer sales” and coupons; the products were advertised in catalogs, brochures and other materials. “It costs us roughly $25 per unit to manufacture, and we are selling from $170,” one employee wrote in an email, according to the lawsuit. If this isn’t enough of a situation that would make you want to vomit, please remember how they are acquiring what they were selling in the first place and think to yourself that no amount of money could make up for the hateful things that they are doing.
