Another Threat to Fetal Research
Science. 1982 Dec 3; 218(4576): 981.
A bill introduced in the 97th Congress by Representative William Dannemeyer would prohibit the use of federal funds for experimentation on living fetuses except to insure the survival of the fetus or infant. Pro-life groups are supporting the bill; critics claim it is poorly worded, will prevent needed research, and is unnecessary because existing NIH regulations on fetal research are adequate.
