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.
“These children deserved care and protection, but instead were violently stripped of their fundamental rights and are now being sold piecemeal.”
