Flashback: As Trump hails Regeneron treatment, his administration tries to block the science it used
(CNN)President Donald Trump has been celebrating the dose of experimental monoclonal antibodies he was given last Friday, saying he thinks it helped him vanquish his coronavirus infection in record time.
"It was incredible the impact it had," he said in a video he tweeted Thursday.
What he didn't say is that the treatment was developed using technology his administration has worked for four years to ban.
It has to do with abortion politics, and the science of using human tissue to test and to make medicines. Regeneron's therapy indirectly relied on tissue taken from an abortion.
