An animal rights group that advocates for ending publicly funded animal experimentation claims that Stanford University has been injecting fingers and other tissue from aborted human fetuses in mice without properly disclosing their funding.
Fox News reports that the group White Coat Waste Project (WCW) issued a press release last week alleging that Stanford has violated federal law requiring they disclose the funds they are using for the research, which seeks to regenerate human cartilage.
The group filed a complaint with the National Institutes of Health (NIH) in which they argue that Stanford Medical School disregarded the Stevens Amendment when they failed to issue press releases specifying how much of their research was supported by taxpayer funding.
According to how the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) expresses the requirements of the Stevens Amendment, institutions like Stanford must provide press releases and other announcements disclosing “the percentage and dollar amount of the total costs of the program or project funded with federal money.”
WCW did not give an exact amount for the funds they say Stanford has failed to disclose but that “the NIH grants listed as funding sources on both papers have received over $60 million.”
According to Fox News, the experimentation involving fetal tissue sought to regenerate cartilage and identify a skeletal stem cell. They did this by implanting the human tissue—from aborted babies—into mice.
They secured the fetal tissue from StemExpress, the dealer in human tissue that was investigated by Congress following David Daleiden and the Center for Medical Progress’ undercover research which exposed the relationship between Planned Parenthood and StemExpress’s lucrative business.
