On Tuesday, 9/22, the Senate Committee on Human Health and Service held a public hearing on Senate Bill 260 (bans the sale and use of the body parts and tissues of aborted babies) Senate Bill 237 (redirects about $7.5 million annually of taxpayer money away from Planned Parenthood of WI), and Senate Bill 238 (bans family-planning centers from overbilling the state for drugs they dispense). WFA president Julaine Appling attended the hearing and testified in favor of the bills.
