Oxford scientist advocates trafficking of body parts from aborted babies

LifeSiteNews, March 12:
An Oxford University stem cell expert has urged the use of aborted children in organ transplants as a solution to the shortage of available organs. Sir Richard Gardner has called for a feasibility study on the possibility of obtaining organs from the bodies of aborted babies.

He said, "It is probably a more realistic technique in dealing with the shortage of kidney donors than others."

The Daily Mail reports that pro-life and Christian groups have called the proposal "morally abhorrent," and said it will result in abortions being timed to suit transplant patients.
I'm wondering if some pro-choicer out there could tell me if they agree that this idea is "morally abhorrent", and if so, why.
