ACT NOW: Assembly Criminal Justice Committee Passes Bill Banning the Sale and Use of Aborted Fetal Body Parts



 
On Wednesday, September 9, the Assembly Committee on Criminal Justice and Public Safety recommended Assembly Bill 305 to the full Assembly on a 7-4 vote. Pro-Life Wisconsin thanks committee chairman Joel Kleefisch for his strong leadership in co-authoring the bill and successfully shepherding it through the committee process. Now we need the full Assembly to pass this critical bill!

Assembly Bill (AB) 305 bans the sale and use of aborted fetal body parts. The bill was amended by Assembly Substitute Amendment (ASA) 1. Under ASA 1, 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 after January 1, 2015. ASA 1 also requires the abortionist to arrange for the final disposition of fetal body parts resulting from the induced abortion. Final disposition is defined to mean the disposition of fetal body parts by burial, interment, entombment, cremation, or incineration.

Please listen to Representative Kleefisch on The Vicki McKenna Show, WISN Radio 1130, as he explains the urgency of passing AB 305 and the critical need of Wisconsinites to call their state legislators now!
 

ACT NOW!

Use of Fetal Tissue is Unnecessary and Unethical, Say MCW Doctors
 


Last Thursday the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel published an editorial by six doctors from the Medical College of Wisconsin (MCW) in which they collectively state that using aborted fetal tissue in research is unnecessary and exploitative.
Ultimately, what matters most is that we cannot support the exploitation of one group of human beings (the preborn) for the benefit of another group. We became scientists and physicians to serve humanity and to study the natural world in order to improve the human condition. Compromising these ethical standards undermines our work and taints future discoveries. Nothing can diminish the fact that using human embryos or fetuses as objects or means of experimentation constitutes an assault against their dignity as human beings, who have a right to the same respect owed to every person, regardless of developmental stage.
Please read the full editorial HERE.
