Senate Committee Gives 3 Pro-Life Bills the Thumbs Up

Senate Committee Gives 3 Pro-Life Bills the Thumbs Up

This week the Senate Committee on Health and Human Services passed (3-2) three pro-life bills without making any changes that:

  1. ban the sale and use of aborted fetal body parts and
  2. defund Planned Parenthood of Wisconsin of approximately $8 million annually.

Senate Bill 260 prohibits the sale and use of aborted fetal tissue.

Senate Bill 237 would redirect federal Title X family planning funds away from organizations that perform abortions and funnel it to clinics that do not provide abortions.

Senate Bill 238 would eliminate overbilling of Medicaid drug reimbursements.

The bills will now move on to the full Senate for a public hearing and vote.

Wisconsin Family Council president Julaine Appling said, “We are very grateful Senator Vukmir called for this vote in her committee and that Senators Terry Moulton and Devin LeMahieu joined her in voting these bills out of committee. That’s an important step to clear the way for the entire Senate to pass them. The question now is will Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald let the bills go on the floor for a vote.”
