Aug 19, 2020 | 2020 Press Releases, Press Releases, Press Room

WASHINGTON — Late Tuesday, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Fetal Tissue Research Advisory Board released its report on fetal tissue research. The following statement can be attributed to Carol Tobias, president of National Right to Life:

“We applaud the Trump Administration for convening the independent advisory board as established by statute. It is appropriate that tax-funded research be reviewed in regard to the ethical nature of the research. These tiny humans are aborted and exploited when they are farmed for their organs and tissue for use in research projects. Ethical alternatives are available.”

Founded in 1968, the National Right to Life Committee (NRLC), the federation of 50 state right-to-life affiliates and more than 3,000 local chapters, is the nation’s oldest and largest grassroots pro-life organization. Recognized as the flagship of the pro-life movement, NRLC works through legislation and education to protect innocent human life from abortion, infanticide, assisted suicide and euthanasia.
