President Donald Trump has proven he is the most fearless advocate for unborn Americans by delivering yet another pro-life win.
The Trump Administration recently put the abortion industry under the knife by slashing federal funding for fetal material research. He announced that public-sector researchers at the National Institute of Health would be banned from using the bodies of aborted children. Taxpayers have been on the hook for upwards of $13 million, and the Department of Health and Human Services plans to end a 6-year, $2 million contract with the University of California dealing with fetal body parts research.
“The Radical Left, with late-term abortion (and worse), is imploding on this issue. We must stick together and Win for Life in 2020,” Pres. Trump tweeted. “If we are foolish and do not stay UNITED as one, all of our hard fought gains for Life can, and will, rapidly disappear!”
Approximately 200 other contracts connected with aborted body parts are also expected to be re-evaluated. The total cost of taxpayer money being used on fetuses stands at approximately $100 million in National Institute of Health grants.
“Promoting the dignity of human life from conception to natural death is one of the very top priorities of President Trump’s administration,” a U.S. Dept. of Health and Human Services statement reportedly announced. “(NIH) research that requires new acquisition of fetal tissue from elective abortions will not be conducted.”
Abortion advocates have voiced opposition to the president’s curbing of tax dollars funding the industry. Some point to the potential for curing diseases such as Alzheimer’s. Others see a morbid irony in the argument that killing babies is worth curing an illness. Those whose funding is being directly affected also claim there is no correlation between fetal body parts research and increased abortions.
The Trump Administration, however, gave a 90-day extension for a contract with the University of California San Francisco engaged in HIV research despite Chancellor Sam Hawgood calling the pro-life decision “politically motivated” and “shortsighted.”
Although the Americans have vastly different views about when or if an abortion should be legal, a majority believe their tax dollars should not be used to fund ending a pregnancy.
“Most Americans do not want their tax dollars creating a marketplace for aborted baby body parts which are then implanted into mice and used for experimentation,” March for Life president Jeanne Mancini said. “This type of research involves the gross violation of basic human rights and certainly, the government has no business funding it.”
Recent infanticide laws passed by radical Democrats in states such as New York go as far as to disregard a child’s life in the event of a failed abortion. Physicians are not obligated to treat and care for those who are born alive during a botched abortion. There has been substantial push-back from the president and pro-life Americans in the wake of the laws. Liberal researchers making money in the fetal research industry have tried to claim no connection exists between the increasing number of abortions and greed.
“There is no evidence that the use of donated tissue from fetal remains has any effect on whether women choose abortions, and no evidence that decades of research using donated tissue has ever led to an increase in the number of abortions,” Alta Charo of the University of Wisconsin said.
In recent years, clear evidence has surfaced that so-called “non-profit” organizations such as Planned Parenthood have raked in hundreds of millions peddling aborted baby body parts, and some sources say they actively negotiated to sell completely intact remains at a premium.
“This is a major win and welcome news for the pro-life community. The work of investigative reporter David Daleiden, who first highlighted Planned Parenthood’s practice of using aborted preborn remains for medical research and, allegedly, profit, is finally paying off nearly four years after the story first broke,” Jim Daly’s blog at Focus on the Family states.
Pro-life organizations hailed the unified Trump Administration’s decision to once again curb the efforts of greedy abortion clinics to turn a profit by terminating life.
“It was a good step, but a preliminary step to stop the trafficking in fetal tissue,” David Prentice at the anti-abortion Charlotte Lozier Institute said. “We look forward to more.”
Led by President Trump’s recent appointments, the U.S. Supreme Court recently recognized that fetuses are, in fact, human beings by upholding a law requiring these souls must be either properly buried or cremated.
