H.R. 1895: Protecting Life and Integrity in Research Act

H.R. 1895, the Protecting Life and Integrity in Research Act, would bar the federal Department of Health and Human Services from conducting or supporting any research that involves fetal tissue derived from an induced abortion.
The measure specifies that it "does not limit the authority of the Secretary [of the Department of Health and Human Services] to develop or support the development of new, high-efficiency cell lines, including for the production of vaccines and genetic vectors, so long as the cell lines are not derived from human fetal tissue that is obtained pursuant to an induced abortion."
