The research is testing whether “oxytocin can reduce bleeding in mothers during and after abortion,” SFLA said.
“The researchers are recruiting girls as young as 14-years-old to participate in second trimester abortions, where the unborn baby is 18-24 weeks gestation and has a fetal anomaly,” but SFLA doesn’t know who’s funding it:
“We don’t know if taxpayer dollars are paying for the study. We want an investigation into this research project, and we want it defunded now.”
Though turnout was small, the rally included a minor celebrity: Jason Jones, who produced a movie with strong pro-life overtones, Bella, that got a small theatrical release several years ago.
