Why Researchers Say Fetal Tissue Is Essential for Medical Research

New efforts by some Republicans in Washington have brought the use of fetal tissue in medical research back under scrutiny.But those efforts to restrict its use have also highlighted how critical fetal tissue has become to medical advances.Researchers hope it’s the latter point that sticks with the public.
 

 

 

 

 

 

For now, though, some research has slowed as National Institutes of Health (NIH) researchers have been prevented from obtaining new fetal tissue.In addition, Republican leaders in the House of Representatives recently conducted a hearing on whether alternatives are available to replace fetal tissue, although researchers say the tissue can’t be fully replaced yet.

 

 

 

 

The actions have renewed long-standing opposition by anti-abortion groups to repurposing fetal tissue, collected from the remains of fetuses terminated in elective abortions.But scientists say fetal tissue is key to trying to cure and prevent diseases. They’ve made their frustration clear since the NIH restrictions were quietly revealed in September.
