The Heal Without Harm Coalition, comprised of Wisconsin Family Action, Wisconsin Right to Life, Pro-Life Wisconsin and Wisconsin Catholic Conference welcomed the introduction this past Monday of the two-bill Heal Without Harm Initiative in the state senate. The complementary bills seek to demonstrate respect for unborn children by outlawing the future exploitation of aborted children for fetal body parts and by providing scientists with ethical sources of fetal tissue from miscarried or stillborn babies. The bills are currently in the Senate Judiciary Committee.
“Wisconsin Family Action is proud to be part of this unprecedented pro-life coalition,” says Julaine Appling, WFA president. “Our state has an extraordinary opportunity to lead the nation by championing research that is ethical, innovative, and effective. We look forward to a thoughtful public debate on this issue at a public hearing and hope for this legislative initiative ultimately to become the law.”
On September 25, 2017, WisEye senior producer Steve Walters discussed ethical scientific research with members of Heal Without Harm, a coalition of organizations and citizens dedicated to working with the scientific community to encourage it toward ethical research.
