CMA Condemns FDA Use of Aborted Babies’ Tissue

Catholic Medical Association Condemns the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s Use of Aborted Babies’ Tissue in Experiments

CMA is calling on Congress and the Trump Administration to immediately rescind contracts

PHILADELPHIA, PA– August 8, 2018 – CNSNews is reporting that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration signed a new contract last month to acquire “fresh” human fetal tissue to transplant into “humanized mice” proving the animals to have functioning “human immune systems,” according to information published by the FDA and the General Services Administration. The experiments would be funded with federal tax dollars.

“The FDA says the research using aborted babies is critical to understanding how the human immune system responds to certain drugs and biologics, helping to better understand diseases that affect millions of Americans. We strongly disagree. We oppose sacrificing any human life that justify this form of human experimentation,” said Stephen White, Chair of the CMA’s Health Care Policy Committee.
The FDA claims the experimentation requires tissue from late-term aborted babies, not miscarried ones to create its “humanized mice.”

“The use of unborn human life for experimentation by the United States government is unconscionable. We are calling for an immediate stop to this practice urging the Trump administration to revoke the contracts,” said CMA President Peter T. Morrow, M.D.

In fiscal 2018, the National Institutes of Health (NIH), a separate department from the FDA but also part of the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) estimates it will spend $103 million on human fetal tissue research.

In July, the House Appropriations Committee approved a bill to fund the Department of Health and Human Services for fiscal 2019. That bill includes language that prohibits federal funding of research that uses human fetal tissue obtained through an abortion.
According to CNSNews for that language to become law, it would need to be included in a funding bill that is passed by both the House and Senate and signed by President Donald Trump.

    This is horrible! The FDA has been out of control fir a long time. I hope President Trump will drain that swamp too!

  2. Kathleen Lohff says:

    Agree that these contracts need to be suspended!
    I also have a comment on the SHINGRIX vaccine.
    I am appalled that SHINGRIX uses hamster ovarian DNA
    By means of recombinant (gene cloning) DNA.
    Why is it his not being talked about?

  3. Mark McKay says:

    We must not use aborted fetal cells or tissue from elective abortions. It would be permisssble with parental consent to use spontaneous abortion for ethical experimentation.

    NEVER RIGHT!!!!!!!

  5. Donna says:

    So how do you explain the Catholic Church Schools in Mobile, Alabama denying children who are not vaccinated to attend their schools? The state of AL recognizes a religious exemption but the Catholic Schools say they do not recognize it. They reference aborted fetal cells do not matter in face of the “greater good.”

  6. Kathleen Lohff says:

    The Catholic Church is usually at the forefront of all moral battles. However they certainly seem to be lacking in this battle against vaccines that are immoral. We need to keep at it and get our Priests and Bishops to know how hard it is becoming to get exemptions and the truth of other immoral and toxic materials in the vaccines. And Catholics in the public school system and medical fields need help.
