Wisconsin GOP backs tissue ban

Republican state lawmakers are pushing a bill that would ban research on aborted fetal tissue, a proposal that’s attracting widespread opposition from Wisconsin’s medical community.

The measure was scheduled for a public hearing before the Assembly’s criminal justice committee Tuesday, a sign that Republicans who control the Legislature hope to vote on it as soon as next month.

The bill would also outlaw selling, donating and experimenting with fetal body parts in Wisconsin.

The Wisconsin Medical Society, the Medical College of Wisconsin and a trade association representing biotech companies are all lobbying against the measure. - AP
