March 22, 2013 was the launch of “One of Us” in Leiden, the Netherlands.
OneOfUs.eu is one of the First “European Citizens Initiatives” – possible due to the EU Lisbon Treaty. After having drawn attention to the human dignity of the embryo – as they are “one of us” – a journalist asked for specific instances in Holland, where the human embryo is used in the (bio)pharmaceutical industry.
Irene van der Wende of Abortioninformation.eu/ AbortusInformatie.nl responded, mentioning that Crucell in Leiden, the Netherlands, had developed a line called PER.C6, whose origin can be found in an aborted baby. This PER.C6 line is used for researching new vaccines such as Ebola, HIV. Van der Wende also mentioned HEK.293 in conjunction with Pepsi, used for taste testing in their laboratories: http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2013/03/17/senomyx-flavor-enhancers.aspx
HEK.293 is based on a Human Embryonic Kidney from a baby, in Leiden, the Netherlands.
(Alex Van der Eb’s laboratory in Leiden, from a healthy aborted fetus http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HEK_cell)
She also mentioned Neocutus, who amongst other things use PSP – for burns, but also for anti-aging products. This PSP is also based on the cells of an aborted baby.
A journalist felt the above warrented a heading in the Dutch newspaper Leidsch Dagblad, saying “Pro-life richt pijlen op Crucell” “Pro-life aims arrows at Crucell” 22 March 2013 – see image on this page.
In this document by AbortionInformation.eu/ AbortusInformatie.nl one can find some more background information on the above statements.
Is it true that we indeed focus our attention on Crucell? Or is there just a lot of ignorance and lack of knowledge about what happens with embryos in laboratories?
According to AbortusInformatie.nl it mainly has to do with a lack of awareness in the public arena, and so it is time to start talking about this on a wider scale.
Human Diploid Cells
Human diploid cells is a code. If you find the term human diploid cells listed as an ingredient in a product, it could well be that this has been derived from an aborted baby. (This is not always the case, like for instance HDCS HeLa cells from an adult female http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HeLa, http://rense.com/general89/immot.htm)
“A diploid cell is a cell that contains two sets of chromosomes. One set of chromosomes is donated from each parent. Humans have 2 sets of 23 chromosomes = 46 chromosomes.” http://biology.about.com/od/geneticsglossary/g/diploid_cell.htm
The coding is usually shown as a number of alphabetical letters, followed by a few numbers.
A few examples are PER.C6, HEK-293, IMR-90, MRC5, and WI-38, as mentioned in the AbortionInformation.eu brochure. For example, HEK-293 stands for Human Embryonic Kidney (from a kidney of a human embryo), where the number 293 comes from the numbering of the experiments, according to Wikipedia HEK_cell.
Anti-aging products and burn treatment
Cells of an aborted baby can be duplicated and used for different purposes.
An example is for use as burn treatment, or in some anti-aging products. Brand name: Neocutis. “Originally developed to help burn victims recover, Neocutis’ proprietary technology uses cultured fetal skin cells” – cells from the skin of an aborted baby. “Fetal” ie. from a fetus. Furthermore they say their “mixture is called PSP®, which stands for ‘Processed Skin Cell Proteins’.
”Neocutis means “new skin”.
“Originally established for wound healing and burn treatments, today this same cell bank also provides a lasting supply of cells for producing Neocutis’ proprietary skin care ingredient Processed Skin Cell Proteins (PSP®).”
According to this link, PSP® is used in these products: https://www.ambrosiamedspa.com/neocutis-skin-care.php
- NEOCUTIS Bio-restorative Skin Cream,
- JOURNÉE Bio-restorative Day Cream,
- LUMIÈRE Bio-restorative Eye Cream,
- BIO-GEL Bio-restorative Hydrogel, and also
- “Bio-Restorative Serum with PSP Intensive Spot Treatment” according to https://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2009/nov/3/aborted-fetus-cells-used-in-anti-aging-products/ A 1-ounce bottle of Journee Bio-Restorative Day Cream costs $120.
Origin of PSP
The ingredient was developed at the University of Lausanne in Switzerland from proteins in the skin tissue of a 14-week-old male baby electively aborted at the university’s hospital and donated to the Swiss university..….The fetal skin cell line was taken from a piece of skin the size of a postage stamp and donated voluntarily by the parents for medical research… said the Neocutis statement.” But does that make it morally and ethically ok? Do these parents know that their son lives forth in products smeared on womens bodies around the world, every day??
PSP stands for processed skin cell proteins. PSP is a very powerful ingredient that can be used in a good anti-aging lotion” translated from www.caclbca.org/belangrijke-ingredienten-te-zoeken-in-een-goede-anti-rimpel-creme.html
Crucell vaccines PER.C6
Crucell (short for crucial cells according to http://forum.fok.nl/topic/271537/1/999) has developed a line called the PER.C6 line. Embryonic Retina.
Crucell is a biotechnology company in Leiden, the Netherlands, focused on research, development, and worldwide marketing of, amongst others, vaccines (and therapeutic proteins). https://www.crucell.com/Technology, http://media.corporate-ir.net/media_files/nsd/crxl/NOVAVAX_NL.pdf, http://hugin.info/132631/R/920374/123926.pdf
Some of their partners are for example DSM Biologics, Aventis, Merck, J&J (takeover). Some vaccines:
- HIV https://www.crucell.com/R_and_D-Clinical_Development-HIV_Vaccine
- Influenza https://www.crucell.com/R_and_D-Clinical_Development-Epidemic_Influenza_Vaccine
- Malaria https://www.crucell.com/R_and_D-Clinical_Development-Malaria_Vaccine
- see their drawing Ebola, etc.
Origin of Crucell
CNSNews.com mentioned in 2003 that applications had been made to ethics committees in Australia and New Zealand on behalf of Crucell, to buy tissue from aborted babies. http://cnsnews.com/node/14204, https://www.crosswalk.com/1204932/
The PER.C6 line is made from the retina(eye) of a human baby aged 18 weeks www.cogforlife.org/crucell.htm, &pg 91 below. It is Clone 6 hence the ending .C6 pg 93 below. A citation of Dr. Van der Eb (see below) “Both cell lines [HEK-293 and PER.C6] were made in my lab, and also the cells, the starting material, was prepared by myself at the University of Leiden ” (in the Netherlands)
pg 77, 81, 90-100
Much more can be said about experiments and vaccines, but more on that later. If you have questions about experiments and aborted babies, or abortion itself, feel free to contact us: firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com
