Embryos found in forest possibly used in scientific research
Valery Gorelykh, the press service chief of the main department of the Russian Interior Ministry for the Sverdlovsk region, said that "police have established that the embryos 'aged' 22-26 weeks of pregnancy were practically mummified," Itar-Tass reports. He added that, "Police have also found 113 tags with the names of medical establishments, concrete dates and women's surnames in the same forest gully."
Gorelykh said that the embryos could have been thrown away after laboratory tests.
"Hospitals hand over part of the embryos to an organization that carries out scientific research," Gorelykh said, according to Itar-Tass.
Investigators are looking into the possibility that an organization disposed of the embryos in the forest.
The regional Health Ministry, meanwhile, has sent inquiries to all of the medical establishments with obstetrical and maternity departments located anywhere within 100 kilometers from where the embryos were found. The Health Ministry has demanded the presentation of all documents explaining how biological waste can be collected and disposed of, according to Itar-Tass.
