March For Life Statement On FDA Termination Of Contract With ABR

 

“March for Life thanks Secretary Azar and HHS for terminating this horrific $15,000 contract to provide ‘fresh’ fetal tissue. However, this is just a first step.  Three years after being exposed by grisly undercover videos from Center for Medical Progress, the aborted baby parts industry is still receiving substantial financial support from NIH Director Francis Collins as well as taxpayers. Close to $100 million is currently being directed by HHS and NIH towards procurement of baby body parts for experimentation in mice. These funds should instead be redirected to successful alternatives that do not devalue human life.”
