Wisconsin Catholic Conference
Senator Duey Stroebel (R-Saukville) and Representative André Jacque (R-De Pere) have introduced Substitute Amendment 1 to Assembly Bill 305 to ban the sale and use of fetal body parts procured from induced abortions that take place after January 1, 2015. The ban would not affect research on existing fetal-derived cell lines in Wisconsin, but any person who violates the ban would be guilty of a Class H Felony and be fined up to $50,000.
The amended bill passed out of committee on September 10 and is now available for a vote on the floor of the Assembly.
The Wisconsin Catholic Conference strongly supports AB 305 and testified at the public hearing that scientific progress can and must proceed in an ethical manner without commodifying human beings.
They appear to also be trying to integrate some more modern functionality to their website, an RSS feed which we now have added on the side, they have been on Facebook as well for a while now.... so might as well open a Twitter account and sync it to what gets posted on Facebook.
BTW, I forced myself to watch the debate last night. People are always trying to talk me out of it but I will vote Rand Paul in the primary. He's the only one who has any kind of reasonable foreign policy, and it stands out in the debates. Everybody else on foreign policy sounds like John McCain in 2008 pounding his fist on the podium screaming about bombing Russia. I expect him to stay in the after the other candidates begin bowing out and could be a sleeper for a late surge. People continue to discount him because he has different policy than the cookie cutter models of the rest of the GOP, or the Trump policy of doing "special stuff."
That said, Carly Fiorina continues to impress and is certainly more than a "token woman" candidate that some touted her to be. But ultimately, her McCain like policy (she was an adviser to McCain's presidential campaign) are not going to win.
