Pro-Life Wisconsin concurs with the House Select Panel on Infant Lives that aborted fetal tissue research is “outdated technology,” has demonstrated “no benefit to patients,” and is ethically problematic.
We welcome the House panel’s call for robust federal funding of parent-donated tissues from natural demise of preterm and stillborn babies and an end to federal funding of human fetal tissue obtained from induced abortion.
As we have for more than 15 years, Pro-Life Wisconsin supports a comprehensive federal and state ban on the sale and use of aborted fetal body parts.
This article from LifeSiteNews.com tells the full story:
The Select Investigative Panel on Infant Lives released a nearly 500-page final report today, detailing Congressional findings on the nefarious activities of the fetal body parts and abortion industries.
The Panel says it has urged law enforcement officials to prosecute various abortion facilities, universities, and fetal tissue companies for violating federal laws and regulations.
The report reveals that it made a total of 15 such criminal referrals, including one against fetal tissue company StemExpress because it "may have destroyed documents that were the subject of congressional inquiries, document request letters, and subpoenas."
The Panel says they also sent letters to the Department of Justice and Texas Attorney General asking them to prosecute a late-term abortionist for allegedly murdering babies born alive.
