JP2MRI Launches "Campaign for Cures" – Support Research to Replace Aborted Fetal Cells Used in Pharmaceutical Manufacturing

JP2MRI needs to raise $300,000 by December 31, 2019 as part of the "Campaign for Cures" initiative. Meeting this fundraising goal will enable the Institute to begin research to replace the vast numbers of human cell lines derived from past abortions, which are routinely used in the biomanufacturing of a variety of current pharmaceutical products such as protein drugs, gene therapy, cell therapy and vaccines. The biopharmaceutical industry generates billions of dollars each year using morally illicit cells. The Institute has the technical resources and expertise to offer an ethical solution, but it needs financial support from pro-life individuals and organizations. Please join this important campaign by making a meaningful, tax-deductible contribution and earmark your donation towards our "Campaign for Cures" program.

The John Paul II Medical Research Institute (JP2MRI) focuses on the most ethical and cost-effective way of conducting medical research to help develop therapies and cures for a variety of diseases. Most diseases share a common technical requirement to create therapies. The Institute’s research focuses on these common technical requirements by recruiting patients to procure tissue to develop stem cells and cancer cells for medical research.


The Institute differentiates itself from other research organizations in the following manner:


1. We do NOT support embryonic stem cell research. We support research that is pro-life driven.


2. We devote more than half of our budget towards medical research, which is far greater than most established foundations.


We need your support now.

Patient Registry


This is a patient registry form for anyone who has a genetic disorder who would like to join. All data will be held confidentially, obtained voluntarily, and will never be shared with third parties. Once you're done, click Submit.

The service of humanity leads us to insist, in season and out of season, that those using the latest advances of science, especially in the field of biotechnology, must never disregard fundamental ethical requirements by invoking a questionable solidary which eventually leads to discriminating between one life and another and ignoring the dignity which belongs to every human being.
