SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: SUMMARY: 40 CFR Part 52 VerDate Sep<11>2014 45 CFR Parts 46 and 75 I. Introduction In September 2018, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) terminated a contract that provided human fetal tissue from elective abortions to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the development of testing protocols. HHS terminated the contract because it was PO 00000 Frm 00034 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 2615 not sufficiently assured that the contract included the appropriate protections applicable to fetal tissue research or met all other procurement requirements. HHS subsequently initiated a comprehensive review of all HHS research involving human fetal tissue from elective abortions to ensure consistency with the statutes and regulations governing such research and to ensure the adequacy of procedures and oversight in light of the serious regulatory, moral, and ethical considerations involved. Promoting the dignity of human life from conception to natural death is one of the top priorities of President Trump’s administration. The audit and review informed the policy process that led to the administration’s decision, announced June 5, 2019,1 to discontinue National Institutes of Health (NIH) intramural research—research conducted within NIH by NIH researchers—involving the use of human fetal tissue from elective abortion. With respect to extramural research (research conducted outside of, but funded by, NIH, e.g., at universities), the administration announced that, for new extramural research grant applications or current research projects in the competitive renewal process (generally every five years) that propose to use fetal tissue from elective abortions and that are recommended for potential funding through NIH’s twolevel external scientific review process, an ethics advisory board will be convened to review the research proposal and recommend whether, in light of the ethical considerations, NIH should fund the research project— pursuant to a law passed by Congress (42 U.S.C 289a–1). In the same policy statement, HHS announced that it would also undertake changes to its regulations and to NIH grants policy to adopt or strengthen safeguards and program integrity requirements applicable to extramural research involving human fetal tissue from elective abortions.2 In this notice of proposed rulemaking, HHS proposes revisions to its Human Research Subjects Protection Regulations (45 CFR part 46, subpart B, Additional Protections for Pregnant Women, Human Fetuses, and Neonates) and its 1 See Statement from the Department of Health and Human Services, June 5, 2019, available at https://www.hhs.gov/about/news/2019/06/05/ statement-from-the-department-of-health-andhuman-services.html. 2 See Statement from the Department of Health and Human Services, June 5, 2019, available at https://www.hhs.gov/about/news/2019/06/05/ statement-from-the-department-of-health-andhuman-services.html.
