It Looks Like Ukrainian Leaders Don’t Want to Know the Truth About Infant Harvesting Scandal


This isn't good: Irina Bogomolova, the head investigator seeking to track down whether newborn infants were really killed and harvested for their stem cells and organs, was removed from the case after demanding that the investigation be expanded.

The Telegraph reported her as saying: "A trade in stem cells exists here... I suspect there is a lot of bribery going on, right up to highest levels. Pregnant women, especially from rural areas, are very vulnerable targets as they will obviously believe whatever the doctors tell them. It's easy to take their babies from them and tell them they died or were born dead due to complications."

Obviously this has many profound human rights implications. If the UN is capable, it needs to begin to gear up an inquiry. And while they are at it, why not investigate the issue of human organ selling worldwide, including whether China kills Falun Gong for their organs?

Never mind: That would require action and true concern for the intrinsic value of all human life and not just talk. What was I thinking?
