Startups Aiming to Harvest the Blood of Children for Rejuvenation

Powerful tech corporations are putting billions of dollars into startups that intend to harvest the blood of children for the purposes of rejuvenation and anti-aging.

Newsweek published a profile on the growing industry, which includes injecting stem cells taken from dead mutilated fetuses into people, of humans playing God with disastrous consequences.

Scientists are already coming up with quaint-sounding justifications to commit atrocities.

“If you put this work in an evolutionary perspective, we were not supposed to live that long,” says Gerard Karsenty, who is chair of the Department of Genetics and Development at the Columbia University Medical Center.

“Aging is an invention of mankind. No animal species has successfully cheated its own body—cheated nature—except mankind. Elephants may live for 100 years but they lived for 100 years a million years ago. Humans have outsmarted their own body.

Big League Politics has reported on how fetal parts are being sold at a premium, with firms like Planned Parenthood raking in tons of cash through third-party vendors, and the butchers are being protected by the court system:

    This has the “Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation” written all over it.
    The last thing those psychopaths want to face is their own mortality.
    We’ve all got basically 80 years on this rock. All the money in the world doesn’t change that. Yet.
    We also aren’t that far from Pedophilia being a protected activity. Why wouldn’t they do this as well?

    In the mid 1990's I attended research meetings at Columbia University with brilliant people. Not quite sure why I was invited but I did attend. These people were at the molecular level - way beyond my knowledge base. At the end of the discussions I understood the direction of their research and it became clear that the question would become "how long do you want to live and who gets to make that decision?"

    It has been conveyed to us by our ancient ancestors that we would live to 120.
    Why don't we first concentrate on achieving that before we monkey around with things we have no complete, integrated knowledge about.

    Humans are vastly different in many ways, what might accidentally work for one, just might kill the old axiom...One man's medicine/food might be another man's poison.
