Fetal Tissue, Human Embryo and Fetal Research

Full Bill Text

The Safe Responsible Ethical Scientific Endeavors Assuring Research for Compassionate Healthcare Act would amend the Public Health Service Act to prohibit the use of tissue obtained from a miscarriage or induced abortion in research conducted or supported by the National Institutes of Health (NIH).

The bill would require research with human fetal tissue conducted or supported by the NIH to meet certain requirements, including informed consent requirements for the donor and researcher, which is currently applied only to research on the transplantation of human fetal tissue for therapeutic purposes.
