Original post

In May, the U.S. Senate passed legislation that permanently defunds the Wuhan Animal Lab. Now, their counterparts in the House of Representatives are taking action.

The House Appropriations Committee just unanimously voted to prohibit taxpayer funding for the Wuhan lab. The amendment to the State Department’s 2022 funding bill was introduced by Rep. Guy Reschenthaler (R-PA).

Taxpayer funds from the State Department, along with money from the NIH and the Pentagon, supported WIV’s dangerous coronavirus experiments on animals that many believe caused the pandemic.

The bill now goes to the full House of Representatives for a vote, then to the Senate, then to the President for his signature! We are working our tails off to make sure it becomes law, and will keep you posted.

In the meantime, you can take action! Urge your Members of Congress to cosponsor the Defund the Wuhan Institute of Virology Act and permanently prohibit taxpayer funding for this dangerous and cruel lab!
