NIH Fetal Tissue Ethics Board Releases First Report
This week, the NIH’s Human Fetal Tissue Research Ethics Advisory Board released their first report, recommending that the federal government reject funding for 13 of the 14 studies they reviewed which involved the use of human fetal tissue. The Board, which was assembled by President Trump earlier this year to make ethics recommendations on the usage of aborted fetal tissue in taxpayer-funded research, includes an array of scientists and ethicists, including Dr. Ashley Fernandes, an Ohio Right to Life Board Member.
President Trump’s assembly of the Fetal Tissue Ethics Board is a massive win for the cause of life, and a vital protection for taxpayer conscious rights. We are thankful for an administration that prioritizes the dignity of unborn human lives and seeks to ensure that important scientific research is conducted ethically.

New Life Blog!
Last night, Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden, along with his running mate Kamala Harris accepted the Democratic Party’s nomination for president. Biden and his running mate Harris are both radically pro-abortion, and both have empathically stated that if elected they strike down existing pro-life protections and push for all access-abortion.
To shed more light on Biden and Harris’ ticket and why their presidency would be disastrous for the cause of life, check out our latest Life Blog post written by Ohio Right to Life’s Director of Communications, Allie Frazier. As November looms larger than ever and millions of Americans contemplate how best to vote their values this election, we hope that Allie’s insights will help inform and equip voters of faith and conscience to stand strong for life at this pivotal moment in our movement’s history.
