WASHINGTON D.C. (12-14-18): The statements made today by National Institutes of Health (NIH) Director Francis Collins in support of continued taxpayer funded research using the broken bodies of aborted infants “illustrate why an immediate personnel change is needed,” said Students for Life of America President Kristan Hawkins following comments from the NIH head. “It’s clear that the pro-life conviction of President Trump is not shared by NIH Director Collins, who should no longer be allowed to waste taxpayer dollars on inhumane fetal tissue research. Just this week, in hearings in the U.S. House we learned again that the broken bodies of aborted infants are not necessary for on-going research. We should no longer allow abortion vendors to profit from selling the body parts of infants who did not survive a visit to Planned Parenthood. A civil society does not traffic in human remains.”
