Univ. Recruits Teens for Experimental Abortions

Much research is being done on oxytocin, the hormone that increases during pregnancy and causes a strong impulse for a mother to care for her baby.  Now the University of Hawaii and the University of Washington are conducting studies on mothers as young as fourteen who abort their babies to observe various effects of oxytocin, or lack thereof (possibly death of the teen girl).

Oxytocin is often referred to as the "love hormone," hailed for its role in sexual attraction and maternal bonding. But according to new research, the hormone may also influence maternal social behavior.

The study, recently published in the journal Nature, reveals how oxytocin increases the processing of social information in the left auditory cortex of the brain, prompting female mice to respond to distress calls from their pups.

Next, the team plans to gain a better understanding of the way oxytocin is released in the brain under natural conditions after childbirth.

From "Hormone oxytocin jump-starts maternal behavior" by Melissa Healy, Los Angeles Times 4/15/15

[Oxytocin] surges each time a mother's milk becomes available to nourish and comfort her baby. It spikes when she gazes at her infant, or hears its cry from another room.

“We found that oxytocin turns up the volume of social information processed in the brain," said Robert Froemke, the study's senior author and an assistant professor at New York University's Langone School of Medicine and its Skirball Institute of Biomolecular Medicine.

That makes oxytocin both more powerful and less powerful than many have believed, said Froemke. The hormone should be understood not as a fast-acting love potion, but rather as a well-timed neural nudge toward more social behavior.

From "University Recruits Teens to Abort Their Babies in Name of 'Scientific Research'" by Kristan Hawkins, 4/15/15

Researchers in Hawaii are recruiting girls as young as 14 to participate in second trimester abortions, where the preborn baby is 18-24 weeks gestation, in order to test whether or not oxytocin can reduce bleeding in mothers during and after abortion.

The clinical study in Hawaii is seeking 166 participants and supposedly started in October of last year and is expected to finish in July of this year. . . .

This study at the University of Hawaii is seeking to abort babies 18-24 weeks gestation, putting mothers at a high risk of complications and even death.

The study is currently under way at the Kapiolani Medical Center in Honolulu, led by Bliss Kaneshiro and Kate Whitehouse. The center does not mention they do abortions on their website nor does it mention they are housing this study and aborting possibly viable babies.

From "Late-Term Abortion Bleeding Experiment" by Mark Stricherz, Aleteia 4/9/15

Aborting a pregnancy in the second trimester carries risks, physicians say. Irregular bleeding is common for two weeks after the procedure and nine American women who have abortions after 20 weeks gestation die every year, according to figures from medical and abortion-provider groups.

In the randomized trial, researchers experiment by either providing or denying intravenous oxytocin to abortion patients. Oxytocin is commonly used to minimize blood loss and decrease the risk of hemorrhage. However, some doctors are concerned that denying oxytocin during surgery may put patients, especially teen girls, at risk.

Researchers will follow patients until they leave the clinic and gauge their "satisfaction, pain score, and postoperative bleeding," according to the study.

Culturally progressive news sites have not reported on the trial. But Planned Parenthood cites two studies to show that women who abort their pregnancy in the second term are still less likely to die than women who give birth.
