Back in July, the Republican Party of Dane County clearly stated our support for new legislation emerging in the Wisconsin Legislature to protect life and further ban the practice of selling aborted babies for profit (“GOP is looking out for the ‘little guy’”). Planned Parenthood has been harvesting organs since the early 1990’s when President Clinton authorized the use of fetal tissue in biomedical research. It has grown into a billion dollar industry and Planned Parenthood was exposed when they were caught on video haggling over the price for parts of aborted babies.
We stated then, and we state it again now, it is precisely these babies’ humanity that makes their organs so profitable for medical research. Now three bills are before the State Assembly: 305, 310, and 311 sponsored by Representative Andre Jacque that make this practice illegal in Wisconsin and ensures that taxpayer funding is routed to more responsible family planning and public health agencies than Planned Parenthood.
RPDC reiterates our support for this common sense legislation and calls on all elected representatives from Dane County and all around the state to join us.
