Where: Wisconsin State Capitol, Room 417 North (GAR Hall)
When: 10 AM, Nov. 14th, 2017
Why: Your voice is needed at the State Capitol! Please come to register in support and even testify in favor of AB 550, one of the bills that makes up the Heal Without Harm Legislative Initiative.
AB 550, Unborn Child Disposition and Anatomical Gift Act, will make certain that families who have suffered the loss of a child due to miscarriage or stillbirth are given information about their options for the final disposition of their child, and the opportunity to donate their child’s remains. In addition, the bill requires the Wisconsin Department of Health Services (DHS) to study the feasibility of developing ethical fetal tissue and umbilical cord blood banks in Wisconsin for use in research.
