A recent medical journal article out of Sherbrooke, Quebec, details the fact that fetal experimentation has not ceased in Canada. Titled, “Explant Culture of Human Fetal Small Intestine,” the article, by D. Menard and P. Arseneault from that university, was quite specific. It states that small intestines “from fetuses varying from 10 to 14 weeks post fertilization were obtained after legal abortions done for medical social indications.” The entire small intestine was removed, cut into sections and then cultured in media for nine days. The goal of the research was to see whether or not human fetal small intestine “could be maintained in organ culture in a serum-free media,” and the experiment proved that it could be done.
