Dr. Lawrence Lawn of Cambridge University's Department of Experimental Medicine at work experimenting on a living, legally aborted, human foetus.
Dr. Lawn was quoted in the Cambridge Evening News as saying "we are simply using something which is destined for the incinerator, to benefit mankind... of course, we would not dream of experimenting with a viable child. We would not consider that to be right."
The Langham Street Abortion Clinic admitted sending aborted foetuses to the Middlesex Hospital (The People, May 17th 1970). A spokesman for the clinic said that the foetuses were aged between 18 and 22 weeks.
"Our doctor had to give special attention to the operation. He did this at his own expense and dispatched foetuses to his colleague at the Middlesex Hospital. It had been done pretty promptly, as the hospital is only a couple of minutes away."
In the News of the World, for the same date, the same man, Mr. Philip Stanley is also quoted as saying "the position is quite clear. A foetus has to be 28 weeks to become legally viable. Earlier than that is so much as garbage."
