"Abortion takes a human life" bannerA pro-life activist says Congress is barking up the wrong tree on an ethics issue that has recently sparked concern among some lawmakers.  

A group of lawmakers from both sides of the aisle have sent a letter to the Food and Drug Administration calling on the agency to stop funding controversial medical testing that sometimes poisons dogs and leads to their deaths.

Eric Scheidler of Pro-Life Action League says the request is a noble cause but asks why lawmakers are ignoring babies in the womb and the selling of aborted fetal tissue for scientific research.

“This looks like hypocrisy to me,” he tells One News Now. “To be more concerned about the welfare of puppies, than you are about babies, seems to be kind of morally upside down.”

The Daily Caller reports it obtained a copy of the letter, which was sent in April. The letter says the FDA is at fault for using outdated rules that mandate animal testing for drug approval.

Approximately 20,000 dogs are used annually and thousands die, the Caller said, citing a report from a government watchdog.

It can’t be ignored, Scheidler says, that the Biden administration is aggressively pursuing a pro-abortion agenda and wrecking pro-life progress, made by the Trump administration, which angered abortion supporters.

“I applaud their concern that our medical experimentation be conducted in an ethical and a moral way,” says Scheidler, a veteran of the pro-life cause, “but that has to extend to the most vulnerable human beings.”
