Re: Chimera Funding Update and a Look Ahead [12/16/16 email from HLA/NCHLA]

Human Life Action (HLA) is "a project of National Committee for a Human Life Amendment, Inc., (NCHLA)."  As per NCHLA Executive Director Amy McInerny, the NCHLA is "an effort founded by the U.S. Bishops in 1974....NCHLA does grassroots lobbying at the federal level on behalf of the bishops and works directly with the USCCB’s Secretariat for Pro-Life Activities. Once the bishops have made their pro-life policy position known...., it is NCHLA’s job to educate and engage the people in the pews and to motivate them to contact their members of Congress to urge them to vote in support of life" (The Catholic Thing, 8/20/15).

Dear Friend,

I hope this finds you well! Although it has been several months since last I wrote to ask your help to defend human life when the National Institutes of Health, (NIH) called for public comments about animal-human “chimera” experimentation, I have not forgotten my promise to keep you posted on developments.

I am happy to report that the overwhelming majority of the almost twenty thousand public comments submitted to the Office of Science Policy were from us! You can see the comment tally by
clicking here. Thank you for all the time and effort you took to raise your voice in defense of human life. We understand that NIH is still evaluating the comments and that no action has yet been taken to lift the funding moratorium. We will keep watching this and let you know if there are future significant developments.

Looking ahead to a new Congress and a new Administration, we hope to see action on a number of pro-life priorities. Some bills we may see include No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion, Unborn Child Pain Awareness Act, Born Alive Abortion Survivors Act, and an effort to redirect funding from abortion clinics like Planned Parenthood.

And, of course, we continue to hold as a priority the enactment of the policy of the Conscience Protection Act! Future action on this vital goal is likely in 2017 and I know we will be able to count on your help when it is time for the grassroots to engage and proclaim the Gospel of Life to the members of Congress!

Whatever comes in 2017, you can continue to rely on Human Life Action to educate and engage everyone, so please stay connected to us by email, on Facebook and Twitter @HumanLifeAction.

I don’t write to you often, but when I do you can be sure it is because we have an important update or a call to action that requires your attention. So, thank you for standing with us in 2016 and for continuing to raise your voice for the voiceless in 2017.

Together we will be heard!

With gratitude,
Amy McInerny
Executive Director
