The Heal Without Harm (HWH) Coalition, comprised of member organizations Wisconsin Right to Life, Wisconsin Catholic Conference, Wisconsin Family Action, and Pro-Life Wisconsin, welcomes the introduction of AB 549 and AB 550.
These two complementary bills, the Fetal Remains Respect Act (SB 423/AB 549) and the Unborn Child Disposition and Anatomical Gift Act (SB 424/AB 550), authored by Sen. Terry Moulton (R-Chippewa Falls) and Rep. Joel Kleefisch (R-Oconomowoc), make up the Heal Without Harm Legislative Initiative. This Initiative seeks to demonstrate respect for unborn children by 1) outlawing the future exploitation of aborted children for fetal body parts (defined as tissue, organ or other part of an aborted unborn child); and 2) providing scientists with ethical sources of fetal tissue.
Wisconsin has an extraordinary opportunity to lead the nation by championing research that is ethical, innovative, and effective. We look forward to a thoughtful public debate on these bills at a public hearing and their enactment into law.
