[Ed. – This is another contract being halted. But it’s a follow-up to this concern expressed in October 2018.]
The Trump administration recently halted another research contract that used taxpayer dollars to purchase aborted baby body parts.
Pro-life advocates have been putting pressure on the Trump administration to stop funding research projects that use aborted baby parts, and it appears the administration is listening. It canceled a Food and Drug Administration contract in September. Then last week, the administration sent word that it would not renew another.
The National Institutes of Health recently told the University of California San Francisco that it will not renew its $2 million-a-year research contract, according to the Catholic News Agency.
The Orlando Sentinel reports UCSF researchers used aborted baby parts to conduct research on treatments for HIV using “humanized mice.”
