TeleTown Hall: Anti-Choice Extremists Block COVID-19 Research
Anti-choice extremists have long been successful in blocking access to fetal tissue for research in finding cures for diabetes, Alzheimer’s, and cancer, insisting that using fetal tissue for lifesaving research is unethical and blocking taxpayer money from funding such research. Now, there is now a renewed urgent call to lift these research restrictions to find COVID-19 treatments and a vaccine.
Join us on Wednesday, June 10th from 3 – 4 pm (CST) to hear from US Representative Jan Schakowsky—one of the leading Democrats arguing to remove such restrictions—and Dr. Kara Goldman—Medical Director of Fertility Preservation at Northwestern Fertility and Reproductive Medicine. Learn more about fetal tissue, its research potential, how anti-choice extremists are continuing their attacks on reproductive health care and preventing research on a potential COVID-19 vaccine, and what you can do about it.
