Rep. Nadler Statement Condemning Trump Administration for Refusing to Lift Fetal Tissue Ban for COVID-19 Vaccine Research
Today, Congressman Jerrold Nadler (D-NY) issued a statement condemning the Trump Administration's refusal to lift their ban on fetal tissue research as scientists and medical professionals work tirelessly to develop a COVID-19 vaccine and save lives:
"That the Trump Administration prioritizes their illogical and harmful anti-science agenda over stopping this pandemic shows once again that they would rather score political points with their anti-abortion friends than save millions of lives. The fact that Health and Human Services (HHS) has not even responded to scientists’ repeated requests to move forward with this research should horrify every American waiting for a vaccine to COVID-19.
"HHS must authorize this research immediately and while the ban on fetal tissue research should be lifted permanently, at the very least it must be lifted during this pandemic."
