The Heal Without Harm (HWH) Legislative Initiative – SB 423/AB 549 and SB 424/AB 550 (Sen. Terry Moulton, R-Chippewa Falls, and Rep. Joel Kleefisch, R-Oconomowoc) – would ban the sale and use of the body parts of aborted babies and instead encourage the donation of tissue for research from children who are stillborn or miscarried.
Without notice, AB 549 and AB 550 have been pulled from their previously assigned committees and put into the Committee on Assembly Organization.
The public has a right to know why these bills were moved and if the committee has any intention of sending them to the floor for a vote.
Please call the members of the Committee on Assembly Organization and ask them:
- Why were AB 549 and AB 550 moved to this committee?
- Does the committee intend to advance these bills so they can receive a floor vote?
There is precious little time left this legislative session for these bills to advance, so please take action now!
