Good news! The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has announced that it will STOP research at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) using fetal tissue from aborted babies. Instead, HHS will fund and accelerate ethical alternatives for medical research!

Please take a few moments to send a thank you note to Secretary Azar.
