Senate Unanimously Passes Sen. Paul’s Amendment to Ban Funding for Gain-of-Function Research in China

On Wednesday, the Senate unanimously passed an amendment proposed by Senator rand Paul which bans the funding of dangerous gain-of-function research in China. Gain-of-function research involves deliberately manipulating viruses to make them more contagious and dangerous in humans.

The Washington Examiner reports:

“Gain-of-function research, where we take a deadly virus, sometimes much more deadly than COVID, and then we increase its transmissibility to mammals is wrong,” Paul said when introducing the amendment. “Any gain-of-function research should not be funded in China with U.S. taxpayer dollars, and I recommend a yes vote.”

The amendment comes two weeks after Paul confronted Dr. Anthony Fauci during a Senate hearing, pressing the infectious disease expert on whether the National Institutes of Health was funding gain-of-function research in China.

“Dr. Fauci, do you still support funding of the NIH funding of the lab in Wuhan?” Paul asked.

“Sen. Paul, with all due respect, you are entirely and completely incorrect — that the NIH has not ever and does not now fund gain-of-function research in the Wuhan Institute of Virology,” Fauci responded.

Cheers erupted in the Senate chamber after unanimously approving the amendment.

  1. who decides that a lab is “deliberately manipulating viruses to make them more contagious and dangerous in humans”?

    1. Also “WHY” needs to be addressed before anyone could be approved to do this type of research!!!!

      1. LIBTURDS don’t read or educate themselves. They grab on a talking point from the MSM’s and go with it. Feelings! Idiots!

        1. Maria…the information has been available for a very long time. The players have been identified repeatedly…They are not hiding. They are laughing at how incredibly stupid the populace has become.
          Who determines “honest and knowledgeable?” The press is complicit.
          Do your own research before it is destroyed. It is there for the finding.
          It really sucks being stuck with the decisions made by the ignorant masses who actually believe propaganda is news.
          It is said you can educate the ignorant but not a helluva lot you can for stupid.

    2. Look it up online if it is still there “Fauci once argued viral experiments worth the risk of pandemic.” Can’t remember where I read it but Obama was warned not to allow the experiments and he ordered Fauci to stand down but Fauci ignored him. Don’t know if Obama ever found out the experiments continued.

  2. Good step. But I’ll really cheer when fauci is found guilty of abetting in the creation in this virus and FIRED!!!!

  3. And who actively supported such research? Was his name Fauci!!! And the answer is, YES! Why is this piece of trash still employed by the US government?

  4. Are O’Biden’s (or Hunter’s) finger prints on any of this “gain of function” which is Weaponizing any type virus…. what happens when our military gets the virus??? or was that the plan?????

  5. All that needs to be done is connect the dots and it spells “China” which was done at Wuhan funded by Fauci’s NIH NIAID. This gain of function research was banned during the Obama Administration because it was so dangerous to humans. Fauci and one of his cohorts decided to pull it off the shelf and start it again and thus, this is how we’ve gone through what we have and the lives that have been lost and trillions of dollars that have been spent for doing so. There are records to show he’s the one who signed off on the funding for gain of function. When it’s all said and done, Fauci will be the linchpin in this whole ordeal. And if that’s the case, then he should stand trial as a war criminal for the harm he’s done to the world. His double speak won’t help him then. Give this another six months and we’ll know a whole lot that puts all of this chaos in order. “We the people” have to keep pushing our politicians to track this down and let justice prevail. We are the power and they know it. We just need to make sure we know who we are and that we are the power that pushes them.

  6. Good to see Republicans standing up to tyranny and corruption. This deception and bioweapon from the Wuhan Lab should be exposed.
