Wis State bills introduced to prohibit sale of baby parts

Heal Without Harm legislative initiative introduced

On Thursday, March 9th, 2017, State Sen. Terry Moulton and State Rep. Joel Kleefisch, along with Sens. Vukmir, Testin, Stroebel, Craig and Nass and Rep. Bernier, introduced the Heal Without Harm Legislative Initiative.

This package of two complementary bills, the Fetal Remains Respect Act and the Unborn Child Disposition and Anatomical Gift Act, 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 another part of an aborted unborn child); and 2) providing families, doctors and scientists with ethical sources of fetal tissue.

The Fetal Remains Respect Act prohibits the trade and use of fetal tissue derived from the intentional taking of a human life after Jan. 1, 2017.

The Unborn Child Disposition and Anatomical Gift Act requires health care facilities to inform parents of the ability to offer an anatomical gift from their stillborn or miscarried child.
