Is it ethical to use data from Nazi medical experiments?

The Nazis performed research on imprisoned Jews, and today we do research using the remains of aborted children. The justification given for this experimentation, in both cases, is that the subjects weren’t fully human. If that is a reason not to use cruelly-derived  Nazi research – which is universally condemned and unlikely to ever be otherwise – isn’t there all the more reason to steer clear of the results of experimentation on aborted fetuses? After all, abortion is an evil still with us.

This is an especially relevant question today considering that some of the COVID vaccines in the works are being developed with the remains of aborted children.
