Pro-abortion celebrity and alleged comedian Sarah Silverman may know she wants to #StandWithPP despite their nightmarish organ-harvesting side business, but if the following string of tweets (hat tip to Mediaite for the first) is anything to go by, she still doesn’t quiiiiite grasp the ethics involved:
Abortion is still legal in the great U.S of A. It would be insane not to use fetal tissue 4 science & education in such cases. #StandwithPP

Except for the small detail that organs (not tissue) donated to researchers or medical schools are, y’know, donated. Hospitals can’t just take out whatever might be useful whenever somebody dies; they have to check whether the deceased chose to be an organ donor first. And getting those organs by killing their previous owner is widely understood to be a particularly heinous crime… at least, when the victim has already been born.
