Bill To Restrict Funding For Fetal Tissue Research

Jul 14, 2017

A House subcommittee which oversees the budget for the National Institutes of Health is considering legislation that would restrict federal funds from being used “to conduct or support research using human fetal tissue if such tissue is obtained pursuant to an induced abortion.” The NIH spent $107 million in fiscal 2017 on research which included fetal tissue. Planned Parenthood operatives were recorded a few years ago speaking of how they sold tissue from aborted children for medical research. David Prentice with the nonprofit Charlotte Lozier Institute believes there are many alternatives to using aborted children’s tissue for research. He suggested adult stem cells and umbilical cord blood stem cells.
