ACT NOW! Call Assembly Leaders and Demand Passage of Bills Banning the Sale and Use of Aborted Fetal Body Parts, Defunding Planned Parenthood
The Wisconsin State Assembly has scheduled floor debate this Thursday. Only one of the three pro-life bills PLW has been advocating is on the proposed Assembly calendar: Assembly Bill 310. Assembly Bill 305 and Assembly 311 are NOT on the proposed calendar.
WE NEED TO CHANGE THAT!
All three bills have had public hearings and have been voted out of committee. Now it’s up to the Assembly leadership team to schedule these bills for floor action this Thursday. One out of three is UNACCEPTABLE! We need to ensure all three bills are on the final calendar. Also, there is a concerted effort in the Assembly to water down/gut AB 305 and AB 311. We need to ensure there are no amendments to these bills.
- Assembly Bill (AB) 305 bans the sale and use of aborted fetal body parts.
- Assembly Bill (AB) 310 redirects federal Title X Family Planning funds away from organizations that perform or refer for abortions. This will eliminate $3.5 million from Planned Parenthood of Wisconsin.
- Assembly Bill (AB) 311 eliminates inflated Medicaid contraceptive drug reimbursement rates. This will eliminate $4.5 million from Planned Parenthood of Wisconsin.
Please CALL the Assembly leadership team and demand that they SCHEDULE and PASS AB 305 and AB 311 WITH NO AMENDMENTS this Thursday.
Tell them to “Put AB 305 and AB 311 on the floor for a vote with no amendments! Defend the human dignity of our preborn brothers and sisters and stop using our tax dollars to fund abortion providers.”
