ACT NOW: Assembly Criminal Justice Committee to Hold Public Hearing on Bill Banning the Sale and Use of Aborted Fetal Body Parts



(Dr. Mary Gatter jokes about what she will do with the profit from selling aborted baby parts in the second Planned Parenthood video released by the Center for Medical Progress.)
 

Tomorrow, Tuesday, the Assembly Committee on Criminal Justice and Public Safety will hold a public hearing in the State Capitol on legislation banning the sale and use of aborted human fetal body parts. Assembly Bill (AB) 305 has been formally introduced by Representatives Andre Jacque (R-De Pere) and Joel Kleefisch (R- Oconomowoc). Senator Duey Stroebel is the lead Senate author. Pro-Life Wisconsin State Director, Dan Miller, will offer public testimony at tomorrow's hearing.

The past two legislative sessions Pro-Life Wisconsin has strongly supported legislation authored by Representative Jacque that would prohibit the sale and use of aborted human fetal body parts. We thank Representatives Jacque and Kleefisch for their timely reintroduction of this critical legislation and urge a concerted effort by the full legislature to finally pass it.

Assembly Bill 305 bans persons from knowingly and for valuable consideration acquiring, receiving, or transferring a fetal body part. It also bans persons from knowingly providing, receiving, or using for experimentation a fetal body part. Fetal body part is defined to mean a cell, tissue, organ, or other part of an unborn child who is aborted by an induced abortion. Five states have enacted similar prohibitions on the sale and experimentation of aborted fetal tissue:  Ohio, Illinois, Florida, Arizona and Oklahoma. 

There is documented evidence of the UW-Madison conducting research on human fetal brain and pancreatic tissue. These preborn children did not consent to their abortions and certainly did not consent to experimentation. We expect Wisconsin’s medical research community to procure fetal tissue ethically; for example, from stillbirths or miscarriages with maternal consent.

Federal law prohibits the interstate trafficking of human fetal body parts. Wisconsin’s intrastate commercial activity must have a similar prohibition so that we can guarantee the highest ethical standards of academic research and medical care in our state.

Human dignity demands that our aborted brothers and sisters receive a proper burial, not to mention their full protection as persons under the law!

She Used to Run a Planned Parenthood and Harvested Fetal Tissue. Now She's a Pro-Life Advocate. 


She used to run a Planned Parenthood. She used to push abortions. She even used to harvest fetal body parts

But then, on September 26, 2009, everything changed. On that fateful day, Abby Johnson was asked to assist with an ultrasound-guided abortion. She watched in horror as a 13-week baby fought for, and ultimately lost, its life at the hand of the abortionist.

At that moment, the full realization of what abortion was and what she had dedicated her life to washed over Abby and a dramatic transformation took place. Desperate and confused, Abby sought help from a local pro-life group. She swore that she would begin to advocate for life in the womb and expose abortion for what it truly is. 

Now an internationally renowned author, speaker, and pro-life advocate, Abby travels the world sharing her powerful story, helping others leave the abortion industry, and spreading the truth about Planned Parenthood. And she's coming to our 2015 Annual Auction Dinner on October 17 to be our keynote speaker.
