Baby Fae whose real name is Stephanie Fae Traphagan was an American baby who received a heart transplant from a Baboon sacrificed just to extract the heart.
Surgeon Leonard L. Bailey wanted to change history. So he attempted the first animal to human heart transplant and that’s also on a one day born baby!
A Baboon was sacrificed on that day just to use its heart and this eventually lead to a whole controversy. The surgery was successful but Baby Fae died 21 days later which made many people angry about the useless attempt and killing of a poor Baboon.
Today is exactly 25 years since that event and the debate and controversy is being made alive again about the use of animals and injustice just to save human lives.
