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

“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,” said Carol Tobias, president of National Right to 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.”
