Taxpayers funding mice 'humanized' by aborted babies?

baby feetThe federal government is continuing to fund research on humanized mice – in spite of opposition from the Trump administration – and one pro-life activist explained the underlying reason why the controversial tax-funded experimentation persists.

The United States Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) has extended a 90-day contract for research at the University of California- San Francisco – to the dismay of many pro-life advocates.

The taxpayer funds will purchase tissue from aborted babies and implant them in mice brains to develop humanized mice.

Joe Langfeld of the Human Life Alliance indicated that to understand the reason for the grant, one must follow the paper trail back to the researchers.

“Millions and hundreds and tens of hundreds of millions of dollars [are] driving a culture of death – causing science and other researchers to look for the easy way out … instead of finding the best and most healthy way without abusing a right to life,” Langfeld stressed.

The pro-life activist contended that aborted baby tissue is not needed to conduct the research.

“I can tell you that when they were doing the research at Harvard on the stem cell lines from the fetal cell lines, every time they would inject the mice that they experiment on, those cells always – 100 percent of the times – ended up going out of control,” Langfeld shared. “We call that cancerous. That does not happen with adult and cord blood cells.”

An explanation of why the government actually funds the research was then given.

It was noted that the last time the U.S. Senate voted for a budget bill was several years ago. Accordingly, when a continuing resolution is passed, it is essentially continuing that particular budget measure, which does fund the research – and Planned Parenthood, as well.
