A woman's torso, kept alive for the purpose of using the womb as an incubator. (Read the full article)

" This is not a million miles from the research being done in England by a doctor with links to the Vatican's science department, the Academia del linci: he has already kept monkey heads and bodies alive seperately by putting a 70 microvolt current into the seperated parts to maintain their nervous function. One idea behind the Catholic support is to use brian-dead mothers as receptacles for unwanted pregancies to be brought to term and then adpoted by Catholic couples who are infertile. "

"so practically using the remains of a deceased wich are forced to stay functional or alive as a breeding ground for transplanted embryos wich otherwise would have been arborted so a few zealous selfish couples can get children by abusing a corpse? ... is it me or is the church as sick as ever... and i thought witchhunts and crusades where a dark chapter but that shots down the bird O.O"

"I see no evidence for the insane claim that the Catholic Church is planning "to use brian-dead mothers as receptacles for unwanted pregancies to be brought to term". Probably just anti-Catholic propaganda."
