MRL and NRLC Praise the Trump Administration and Secretary Azar for their Commitment to Advancing Ethical Alternatives to the Use of Fetal Tissue in Research within HHS

The following statement can be attributed to Steve Rupp, President of Missouri Right to Life:

Pro-life Missourians have been fighting against unethical research using baby body parts from abortions for many years. We are grateful that President Trump has taken action to protect and promote respect for innocent babies whose lives are being cut short because of the horrors of abortion.

The cures and therapies for diseases are being found through ethical adult stem cell research where human cloning and aborted baby body parts are not necessary. It is not necessary to sacrifice an innocent life to find a cure for those who need it. You can prevent a market for aborted baby body parts and find cures in ethical research.

The following statement can be attributed to Carol Tobias, president of National Right to Life:

Today's decision by HHS to no longer allow the use of fetal tissue in internal research reflects the goal of President Trump and his administration to promote respect for all human life. As HHS continues to advocate the use of alternatives to fetal tissue research and review future requests regarding the use of fetal tissue in external research, we know that this president and his administration will continue to do all that they can to ensure protection for the most vulnerable members of society.
