After a decade of Obama policies allowing the FDA to experiment on aborted baby parts, the Trump administration canceled the latest contract for the experiments.
The Mengele-like policy allowed the FDA to use aborted human fetus parts as supplies for experiments with mice. But the Trump administration just canceled the July 25 contract the FDA signed to buy aborted baby parts from abortion mill operators.
This is a big victory for pro-life forces.
But how far will this cancellation go? That is the question asked by CNSNews:
The underlying question now is: Will the federal government follow up on the cancelation of this one contract and completely and finally terminate its practice of spending approximately $100 million per year on research that creates a market for tissue taken from aborted babies?
On June 13, the FDA had published a “presolicitation notice” of its intent to award the contract to a Bay Area nonprofit called Advanced Bioscience Resources.
“The objective is to acquire Tissue for Humanized Mice,” the notice said. “ABR is the only company that can provide the human fetal tissue needed to continue the ongoing research being led by FDA.”
The notice made clear that the government was seeking “fresh” fetal tissue.
“Fresh human tissues are required for implantation into severely immune-compromised mice to create chimeric animals that have a human immune system,” the notice said.
The Trump administration has canceled the latest contract with the following statement:
“After a recent review of a contract between Advanced Bioscience Resources, Inc. and the Food and Drug Administration to provide human fetal tissue to develop testing protocols, HHS was not sufficiently assured that the contract included the appropriate protections applicable to fetal tissue research or met all other procurement requirements,” HHS said in a statement.
“As a result, that contract has been terminated, and HHS is now conducting an audit of all acquisitions involving human fetal tissue to ensure conformity with procurement and human fetal tissue research laws and regulations,” HHS said.
“In addition, HHS has initiated a comprehensive review of all research involving fetal tissue to ensure consistency with statutes and regulations governing such research, and to ensure the adequacy of procedures and oversight of this research in light of the serious regulatory, moral, and ethical considerations involved.”
Still, this contract aside, the National Institutes of Health, a division of HHS reports that it will spend $103 million tax dollars to buy aborted babies from abortion mills in the next fiscal year.
Will the Trump administration put an end to this horrid practice of using aborted babies in experiments, cease creating a government-sponsored market for murdering babies, and to end putting millions of dollars into the pockets of Planned Parenthood?
