Pro-Lifers Demand FDA Stop Buying Aborted Baby Body Parts for Mice Experiments

Michael Gryboski–  August 8, 2018

Pro-Life groups are calling on the Department of Health and Human Services to put a halt to a recent contract allowing for the purchase of aborted babies’ tissue for mice experiments.

CNS News reported Tuesday that the Food and Drug Administration, which is part of HHS, had signed a new contract last month to get “fresh” human fetal tissue to transplant into “humanized mice” so to give the rodents a functioning “human immune system.”

“Fresh human tissues are required,” explained a “presolicitation notice” for the contract CNS News quoted from, “for implantation into severely immune-compromised mice to create chimeric animals that have a human immune system.”

Lila Rose, founder and president of the group Live Action, said in a statement released Tuesday that the contract acquiring aborted babies’ tissue was “immoral and horrific.”

“By issuing a contract to acquire human fetal tissue, the FDA is using American tax dollars to pay for human body parts that can only be acquired from aborted babies,” said Rose.
