CONGRESS MAY MOVE TO FUND DEADLY RESEARCH ON HUMAN EMBRYOS
A federal judge on Monday ordered the Obama Administration to stop paying for scientific research that kills human embryos.
But the fight isn’t over. The judge ruled that using federal taxpayer dollars for stem cell research that involves the killing of human embryos violates a law passed by Congress in 1996.That law, known as the Dickey-Wicker Amendment after the two Congressmen who introduced it, says that no federal funds can be used for research in which a human embryo is destroyed or harmed.
National Right to Life was deeply involved in the original fight to pass the amendment. But now the amendment itself is under attack. It’s expected anti-life members of Congress will try to overturn the judge’s ruling by repealing the Dickey-Wicker Amendment, perhaps in September or in a lame-duck session of Congress after the November 2nd elections. National Right to Life will keep fighting with everything we’ve got to protect the Dickey-Wicker Amendment and all pro-life policies that protect human life. National Right to Life supports the many kinds of promising stem cell research that do not involve the killing of a human embryo.
But we strongly oppose the killing of any human being so their stem cells can be removed and used in scientific experiments. You can help National Right to Life defend the Dickey-Wicker Amendment and other pro-life protections in federal law with a generous contribution today. Thank you for standing and defending innocent human lives!
