CLI Comment: HHS Proposed Rule Fetal Tissue Regulations

The trafficking of aborted baby body parts for research is barbaric. The Trump administration was dedicated to ending this practice and protecting the sanctity of human life. Grave injustices were exposed that exploited unborn children for experimentation, but were not fully remedied.

 

Policy changes brought an immediate halt to federal contracts that trafficked organs from aborted fetuses to FDA and NIH research laboratories for humanized mice experiments, and promoted better, modern scientific models. The new NIH Human Fetal Tissue Research Ethics Advisory Board convened in 2020 by HHS Secretary Azar also voted to withhold funds for most extramural fetal tissue grants based on serious ethical and consent problems discovered during proposal review.

 

HHS issued a Federal Register notice of a proposed rule to amend certain regulatory provisions in order to strengthen safeguards and program integrity requirements applicable to extramural research involving human fetal tissue from elective abortions. On February 12, 2021, the Charlotte Lozier Institute submitted an extensively referenced formal comment regarding the proposed rule to the Office of the Secretary, Department of Health and Human Services.

 

Here is our response: Comment-HHS Proposed Rule Fetal Tissue Regulations-Charlotte Lozier Institute.

 

President Biden’s newly-appointed HHS secretary, Xavier Becerra, has a radical pro-abortion record and history of prosecuting pro-life organizations and supporters that defend the lives of the unborn. Secretary Becerra will open the floodgates to federal taxpayer funding and trafficking of baby body parts. His actions are reckless, dangerous and harmful to innocent unborn life.
