National Institutes of Health Reverses Fetal Tissue Requirements

Published on

The National Institutes of Health (NIH) has announced that it will no longer convene the Human Fetal Tissue Research Ethics Advisory Board.

On Friday, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) revoked a decision made during the Trump administration to subject all extramural research involving fetal tissue to review by an independent advisory board. The National Right to Life Committee has expressed criticism of the actions taken by the Biden administration to exploit the deaths of unborn babies who are killed by abortion by allowing research using fetal tissue to proceed.

“We condemn this sickening decision by the Biden administration,” said Carol Tobias, president of National Right to Life. “Tiny human babies are aborted by abortionists and then exploited to be farmed for their organs and tissue for use in experiments.”

Tobias continued, “The Biden administration and HHS Secretary Xavier Becerra have dismantled the process of making researchers meet any ethical standards when it comes to harvesting the body parts of aborted children for research.”

In 2019, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) announced its intention to cease the use of fetal tissue in internal research and to promote the use of alternative research methodologies. In 2020, under the Trump administration, any proposed fetal tissue research was subjected to review by an independent National Institutes of Health (NIH) Human Fetal Tissue Research Ethics Advisory Board.


Daniel Miller is responsible for nearly all of National Right to Life News' political writing.

With the election of Donald Trump to the U.S. presidency, Daniel Miller developed a deep obsession with U.S. politics that has never let go of the political scientist. Whether it's the election of Joe Biden, the midterm elections in Congress, the abortion rights debate in the Supreme Court or the mudslinging in the primaries - Daniel Miller is happy to stay up late for you.

Daniel was born and raised in New York. After living in China, working for a news agency and another stint at a major news network, he now lives in Arizona with his two daughters.
