Abortion industry in Cuba prevents doctor from traveling to visit family

.- In the midst of the controversy surrounding the Cuban government’s decision to deny a well-known doctor the chance to visit her family in Argentina, the newspaper “Nuevo Siglo On Line” published an article maintaining that the real reason for the decision has to do with the abortion industry promoted by the Castro regime.

The article reveals that the doctor in question, Dr. Hilda Molina, belongs to the International Center for Neurological Restoration (ICNR), an institution funded by the Cuban government and which discovered how to use the spinal cells and neurological tissue of human embryos for regenerative purposes in adult nerve tissue.  In order for the process to work, the tissue must be extracted from a live human embryo.

Citing passages from a book by the Center’s director, Dr. Julian Alvarez, the article explains that, “Currently 100,000 abortions take place each year.  The ICNR can therefore easily obtain the embryonic tissue for use in these treatments.”

“The Cuban government, by the way, uses these 100,000 abortions for its statistics of a ‘low infant mortality rate’ in Cuba,” the article adds.

Dr. Alvarez writes in his book, “The day in which a neurotransplant has been scheduled, a team of specialists from our center heads to a maternity ward in Havana, where every day dozens of terminations take place.  There they obtain the embryonic tissue, always with the approval of the donor (the mother), who is transported there immediately and under the conditions required by our institution.”

The article points out that, “Everyone who knows what life in Cuba is like on the inside knows that these ‘patients’ are not involved in this decision at all.  Many of the abortions or ‘terminations’ are done according to the needs of the ICNR.”  In fact, the abortions which daily provide the ICNR the embryonic tissue are legal and sponsored by the state, and any successful family program, such as one in which Cuban women had easy access to diaphragms, for example, would not be of any benefit, the article maintains.

“What would a renowned center which pumps so much money into the Cuban coffers like the ICNR do if the rate of ‘terminations’ were to decrease?  Would it have to associate itself with the Raelian sect in order to produce the fetal tissue another way?  These are only conjectures,” the article states.

Doctor Molina is the ICNR

And to talk about the ICNR in Cuba is talk about a strategic good, and a State secret.  Thus the article asks, “What would happen if Dr. Molina, once away from Cuba, decided to stay and live with her son and her grandchildren in another country.  What would happen if she decided to write her memoirs, or reveal some of her ‘State secrets’?” 

Lastly, the article adds that, “What Cuban diplomacy is not willing to say, since it would be very difficult to say it in diplomatic language, is that Dr. Molina, with her knowledge, her memory and her secrets, belongs to the State, she belongs to the ‘Revolution.’  The same goes for hundreds of thousands of Cubans.  The same for hundreds of thousands of unborn Cubans.”
