WCW WINNING: House Cuts All NIH Funding for EcoHealth, Gain of Function & All of China’s Animal Labs!

Since early 2020 when the White Coat Waste Project (WCW) first uncovered how EcoHealth Alliance (EHA) and Anthony Fauci’s National Institutes of Health (NIH) shipped tax dollars to the Wuhan lab for reckless bat virus-hunting and gain-of-function experiments on humanized mice that the FBI and others believe caused COVID, we’ve been leading efforts in Washington to cut this wasteful and dangerous government spending.

We’ve been making steady progress to curtail cash from various federal agencies from flowing to treacherous animal labs at home and abroad.

House Cuts NIH Funding

The House just voted to prohibit funding for dangerous gain-of-function experiments at the NIH lab in Montana where WCW exposed baby piglets being forced to inhale Ebola in maximum pain experiments.

Now, we have the NIH—Public Enemy #1 when it comes to animal testing—in our sights.

This week, following WCW’s relentless advocacy and lobbying, the U.S. House of Representatives voted in favor of amendments to defund wasteful NIH programs that torture animals and can cause deadly lab leaks.

The 2024 NIH spending bill currently being considered by Congress now includes WCW-backed language that:

🛑️🦠🐁 Completely prohibits NIH funding for gain-of-function experiments, including at the NIH’s Montana lab that did coronavirus experiments on zoo bats and maximum pain Ebola tests on baby pigs and primates


🚫🦇🦠Completely defunds the disgraced EcoHealth Alliance, which WCW just exposed is trying to set up a new US bat lab and has continued to rake in tens of millions of tax dollars for virus-hunting and animal experiments despite likely causing COVID and breaking federal laws. The bill also docks the NIH Director’s budget by $3,748,715, the amount that the EHA grant funding the Wuhan lab received from 2014-2019.

Many of these commonsense measures passed unanimously! Next up, the full House will vote on the bill. We’ll keep you posted.

This legislation is especially critical since we just exposed how EcoHealth is building a new bat lab on US soil with NIH funds and how the new NIH Director irresponsibly supports gain-of-function and funding for unaccountable foreign animal labs.

We’re grateful for leadership from Reps. Guy Reschenthaler (R-PA), Matt Rosendale (R-MT), Thomas Massie (R-KY), Marianette Miller-Meeks (R-IA), August Pfluger (R-TX), Paul Gosar R-AZ), Ralph Norman (R-SC), Lisa McClain (R-MI), and others on efforts to curtail wasteful government spending on virus-hunting and risky and cruel animal experiments that can cause lab leaks and create bioweapons.
