Sen. Steve Daines praised the federal investigation into the University of Pittsburgh for allegedly harvesting fetal tissue from aborted babies for experimentation.

The investigation was prompted by emails revealing the controversial experiments, including the scalping of fetuses and transporting fetal kidneys.

Daines and other Republicans have called for an end to the unethical practice of using aborted fetal tissue for research, while Pitt has denied any wrongdoing, stating that their research is compliant with federal laws. (Trending: Trump Announces Heartbreaking Melania-Related Health Update)

“After years of calling for an investigation into the barbaric research practices happening at the University of Pittsburgh, I’m glad to see the inspector general finally take this seriously. Exploiting the body parts of aborted children is not only repulsive but it has been proven ineffective in producing clinical treatments. It must be stopped,” Daines said.

“Exploiting the body parts of aborted children for research purposes is repulsive and should stop, regardless of the outcome hoped for by researchers,” a letter from GOP lawmakers read.

“Research using abortive fetal tissue is unethical, wrong, and has also been proven ineffective.”

“Despite being used in clinical research since the 1920s, fetal tissue has not produced a single clinical treatment,” the letter added.

“As we have stated in the past: Fetal tissue research plays a critical role in advancing life-saving discoveries. We remain committed to maintaining robust internal controls and to extending our record of compliance at the state and federal levels, and we take these responsibilities seriously,” a Pitt spokesman stated.
