The Department of Health and Human Services announced Thursday that it will no longer fund any research involving human fetal tissue conducted by in-house scientists at the National Institutes of Health. The Department also announced the immediate cancellation of NIH funding directed to UCSF for HIV research using fetal tissue. We'll talk about the politics and ideology behind the move and what the change means for medical research.

Guests:

David Magnus, director, Center for Biomedical Ethics; professor of medicine and biomedical ethics, Stanford University

Julie Rovner, chief Washington correspondent, Kaiser Health News; host, "What the Health?"
