On July 13, roughly 100 activists from Live Action, Pro-Life San Francisco, and Survivors of the Abortion Holocaust collaborated in a protest action at the San Francisco Department of Public Health. It was part of an ongoing series of actions coordinated by Pro-Life San Francisco and Survivors of the Abortion Holocaust in protest of UCSF’s fetal organ and tissue harvesting and research practices.

The San Francisco Department of Public Health and UCSF jointly operate Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital; one of the two Women’s Options Center abortion facilities from which fetal organs are procured after abortions is located at this hospital.

On May 6, 2021, the Executive Coordinator from Pro-Life San Francisco placed a phone call to the City of San Francisco’s 311 hotline, one function of which is to report municipal problems. This was done to establish communication with the Department of Public Health regarding the fetal tissue and organ harvesting and experimentation being executed at UCSF. He received a tracking number via email to chart the progress of his complaint.

The following day, coalition activists from Pro-Life San Francisco and Survivors of the Abortion Holocaust hand-delivered a letter to the office of Dr. Grant Colfax, Director of Health for the City and County of San Francisco. The letter addressed their grievances against UCSF’s fetal tissue and organ harvesting and experimentation practices and requested a response. To date, no response has been received or enacted. Meanwhile, the status of the 311 complaint remains unresolved, as well.
