ACT NOW: Rep. Jacque Renews Legislative Effort to Halt Trafficking of Aborted Baby Body Parts, Defund Planned Parenthood of Wisconsin




In the wake of last week’s undercover video revelation of Planned Parenthood affiliates across the nation employing the illegal partial birth abortion procedure to extract and sell intact fetal body parts, State Representative Andre Jacque (R-DePere) announced his renewed push to ban the sale and use of aborted human fetal body parts and defund Planned Parenthood of Wisconsin (PPWI), the state’s largest abortion provider.

In his press statement, Rep. Jacque explained, “In the coming week, I will be unveiling two proposals which combined are expected to eliminate half or more of the funding each year that Planned Parenthood gets in Wisconsin, by ending the massive overbilling of Medicaid and taxpayers through abuse of the 340 B program and by reprioritizing Title X (family planning) funds to public health programs and agencies. I’ll also be renewing my efforts on the state level with an updated version of 2013 AB 224 to protect the dignity of human life and end the trafficking of aborted baby body parts by preventing their sale, transfer or experimentation.”

State Representative Jesse Kremer (R- Nekoosa) is calling on Governor Walker and Health Secretary Kitty Rhoades to launch a state investigation of PPWI to assess whether they traffic in human fetal body parts and whether any state and federal laws have been violated. Rep. Kremer explained in his press statement that “Wisconsin has the right to know if illegal partial birth abortions and the selling of unborn baby body parts is occurring right here in our state, and I ask the Secretary of the Department of Health Services, Governor Scott Walker, and my fellow legislative leaders to act quickly to ensure our state law is being obeyed." State Senator Duey Stroebel (R-Saukville) and State Representatives David Craig (R-Big Bend) and Romaine Quinn (R-Rice Lake) are also publicly backing Rep. Kremer’s call for a state investigation.

Last week Pro-Life Wisconsin (PLW) Legislative Director Matt Sande was interviewed on Up Front with Vicki McKenna, WIBA Radio 1310 Madison, stating that the undercover video “exposes the coarseness and brutality of the abortion industry, kind of like a Gosnell moment that brings the barbarity of abortion to the fore of the American conscience.” Sande also explained PLW’s strong effort over the past two legislative sessions to ban the sale and use of aborted fetal body parts in Wisconsin and to fully defund PPWI, calling on Wisconsinites to contact Governor Walker and their state legislators and urge them to back the efforts of Reps. Jacque and Kremer.
