Conservative Reps Urge Trump to Fire NIH Chief Francis Collins Over Stem Cells

A group of conservative members of Congress wrote President Donald Trump Monday, urging him to fire National Institutes of Health director Dr. Francis Collins because he is not pro-life enough.

The 41 House members who signed the letter describe themselves as "staunchly pro-life members of Congress". They oppose abortion rights and some scientific research involving human embryos.
