Fetal tissue donation has been making headlines after an anti-abortion group began releasing undercover videos targeting Planned Parenthood — the third of which was released yesterday. The videos have ignited fierce debate on a practice unknown to most as little as a month ago: the fact that many women receiving abortions are given the choice to donate their fetal tissue to medical research — research that has been conducted over decades and has given us many lifesaving vaccines and disease treatments. We’ve heard from many experts on both sides of this debate, but we’ve yet to hear from women who have actually made this decision for themselves. Yahoo Health spoke with three women who shared their very personal decisions to donate their fetal tissue to research.
