petri dish stem cell researchPro-lifers at the University of Pittsburgh are not happy to learn that their university is experimenting on aborted babies.

The University of Pittsburgh did not respond to One News Now's email seeking comment, but the revelation is made in a new video from Center for Medical Progress.

"One of our students really put it best," says Kristi Hamrick of Students for Life. "How horrifying and discouraging and really scientifically unnecessary this kind of research is! And every day our students are walking past the buildings where experiments are taking place in which the broken bodies of aborted infants are being used in ways that are not only scientifically unnecessary, but morally objectionable."

Hamrick is troubled by the way people keep trying to prop up the abortion industry with additional income streams.

"We know from the great work at the Charlotte Lozier Institute that there are all kinds of great sources of stem cells and other tissues," Hamrick continues. "They don't need to do this; they want to do this. And it's also discouraging that the taxpayers are paying for it, so we're just deeply disappointed in the University of Pittsburgh for choosing to engage in morally objectionable and really scientifically suspect work with aborted fetal tissue."

Students for Life members plan to hold a protest this Friday at 11:00 am eastern.

"Students are going to be out at this school, at their school, making it clear that they don't support this use of their tax dollars and of their school's resources," relays Hamrick. "We intend to make our voices heard on behalf of these infants that should rest in peace."
