In late 2018, the Trump Administration made a bold, yet necessary, move which terminated the National Institute of Health (NIH) experimentation that used aborted fetal tissue. It also canceled a contract that it had with the University of California San Francisco worth $2 million which required babies from elective abortions to be subject to research.
While certainly a step in the right direction two organizations, White Coat Waste Project and Pro-Life San Francisco analyzed NIH spending and uncovered a disturbing reality. 200 other projects not conducted within the NIH and which use aborted fetal remains received $115 million in 2018. How this works is that abortions are committed at university hospitals which then use the remains of those children for research. All in-house, as it were.
And if that wasn’t wrong enough, these same universities use these fetal remains on animals, such as once again at UCSF where they used $2 million in taxpayer funds to transplant intestines from aborted fetuses to implant them in mice. For more specifically on this testing, read here.
Terrisa Bukovinac, the executive director of Pro-Life San Francisco, and her group are leading the charge. On September 6th, they will be at the University of California San Francisco to protest UCSF’s sickening research using fetal tissue remains and the use of taxpayer funds to fund such research.
The amount of taxpayer funding that has gone to such research coupled with UCSF’s stance against any restrictions on fetal tissue research (even though most Americans oppose it) demonstrates one thing: it’s all about money. The abortion lobby and their pet scientists are not concerned with women’s healthcare, constitutional rights, or the humanity of the preborn. They are solely concerned with the bottom line, and the amount of profit they can make selling the literal bodies of others.
The Trump administration plans to curb more of this funding in the future to instead fund better scientific endeavors. However, it is the time for Americans from all walks of life to stand up against this practice, starting with UCSF on September 6th.
