Response from Colorado State University Tony Frank regarding medical research practices involving fetal tissue and #PlannedParenthood I appreciate the timely response from the University on the important topic of the use of aborted babies' body parts in medical research. President Frank did indicate that Colorado State University will be taking some positive actions in response to my investigation. They will be suspending, "any further acquisition of fetal tissue from StemExpress or other vendors implicated in the Planned Parenthood investigation pending the outcome of the Congressional inquiry." They will also immediately be making, "all efforts...to seek alternatives to aborted fetal tissue sources." Furthermore, they want to encourage, "further federal oversight of fetal tissue providers." These steps are definitely headed in the right direction. However, they simply aren't far enough. I call on President Frank to commit to no longer using aborted babies' body parts in research. There are profound ethical, moral, and legal questions with this practice that deeply trouble many Coloradans. Furthermore, I am urging a stop to this practice because the reply letter contained another troubling fact. Since 2013, Colorado State University has been acquiring fetal tissue from an organization called Advanced Bioscience Resources. ABR, like StemExpress is also implicated in the ongoing Center for Medical Progress investigations. ABR is a long-time trafficker of aborted babies' body parts. Since 1989, ABR has been obtaining fetal tissue through a variety of methods, including via "induced abortions." They even have a fee schedule illustrating that they charge hundreds of dollars in "service fees" for aborted babies' body parts. Revelations such as this highlight the murky underworld of suspect organizations, legal loopholes, and dubious ethics involving the use of fetal tissue. That's why, later this week, I will be introducing legislation designed to end this barbaric practice once and for all.
The fight to #DefundPlannedParenthood continues this week. I am joining other House conservatives to encourage Speaker John Boehner to have the House take immediate action to totally eliminate federal funding for Planned Parenthood.
