Wisconsin Bill Introduced Making Retail of Aborted Baby Parts Illegal

Kristan T. Harris | The Rundown Live

A new Bill was introduced in the Wisconsin State Legislature that will provide a criminal penalty for the retail and use of fetal body parts.

This comes after Pro-life activists recorded over 300 hours of video footage capturing medical research employees and Planned Parenthood top officials wheeling and dealing aborted baby body parts.

Federal law already prohibits an individual from knowingly acquiring, receiving, or carting of human organs under 42 U.S. Code § 289g–2:, according to an Analysis by the Legislative Reference Bureau.

However, the Feds aren’t enforcing the law and the state doesn’t have a law on the books to enforce. This law will discourage these horrific business practices between medical researchers and Planned Parenthood.

There will be a public hearing on Tuesday, August 11th, in Madison hosted by the Committee on Criminal Justice and Public Safety to acquire local and lobbyist opinion.

The committee will hold a public hearing on the following items at the time specified below:
