BIDEN GREEN-LIGHTS FEDERAL FUNDING FOR RESEARCH USING ABORTED FETAL TISSUE
Israel 365 News - On Friday, the Biden administration reversed a policy from the Trump administration that restricted funding research using fetal tissue harvested from aborted babies.
The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), which superintends the National Institutes of Health (NIH), announced Friday that it would be revoking the Trump-era requirement that “all research applications for NIH grants and contracts proposing the use of human fetal tissue from elective abortions will be reviewed by an Ethics Advisory Board.”
“Accordingly,” the statement continues, “HHS/NIH will not convene another NIH Human Fetal Tissue Research Ethics Advisory Board,” opening a much more liberal space for fetal tissue research by scientific organizations and universities.
