Thank you for SPEAKING UP!

Banning the sale and use of aborted human fetal body parts (LRB 1645/2)

LRB 1645/2 would prohibit the sale and use of aborted human fetal body parts. The bill bans persons from knowingly and for valuable consideration acquiring, receiving, or transferring a fetal body part. It also bans persons from knowingly providing, receiving, or using for experimentation a fetal body part. A fetal body part is a cell, tissue, organ, or other part of, or any material derived from any cell or tissue of, an unborn child who is aborted by an induced abortion. The legislation would also require the abortionist to determine, if medically possible, the gender of the preborn child and report it to the Department of Health Services (DHS). It also establishes new provisions on the proper disposal of aborted fetal remains, through either burial, interment, entombment, cremation, or incineration. The lack of current standard allows for disposal of fetal remains as trash or medical waste.

 

There is documented evidence of the UW-Madison conducting research on human fetal brain and pancreatic tissue. These preborn children did not consent to their abortions and certainly did not consent to experimentation. We expect Wisconsin’s medical research community to procure fetal tissue ethically; for example, from stillbirths or miscarriages with maternal consent. Federal law prohibits the interstate trafficking of human fetal body parts. Wisconsin’s intrastate commercial activity must have a similar prohibition so that we can guarantee the highest ethical standards of academic research and medical care in our state.

 

Defunding Planned Parenthood of Wisconsin / Part 1: Eliminating Inflated Medicaid Contraceptive Drug Reimbursement Rates (LRB 2675/1)

LRB 2675/1 would reimburse Wisconsin’s Medicaid family planning providers, including PPWI, at acquisition cost, or the actual cost providers pay for contraceptive drugs under the federal 340B drug program. The bill would supplant informal agreements with DHS over the last ten years that paid Medicaid family planning providers a heavily inflated reimbursement rate for contraceptives.

Currently, PPWI and other family planning providers bill Medicaid high above what they actual pay for the heavily discounted 340B birth control drugs. The bill would curtail the exorbitant contraceptive drug reimbursement rates for PPWI and other Medicaid family planning providers. It’s bad enough that millions of taxpayer-funded family planning dollars annually subsidize chemical and surgical abortions in our state, without the “piling on” that has been occurring through insider deals struck during the Doyle administration. The bill’s common sense approach will reimburse Medicaid family planning providers what they actually pay for contraceptive drugs, nothing more and nothing less, as most states already do. If PPWI cannot operate its clinics under this equitable payment model, then they can seek private funding. It is expected that the bill’s enactment would cut PPWI’s annual public subsidy by approximately $4.5 million.

 

Defunding Planned Parenthood of Wisconsin / Part 2: Diverting Federal Title X Family Planning Funds Away from Organizations that Perform or Refer for Abortions (LRB 2674/1)

Currently, federal Title X family planning funds are granted directly to PPWI, as they are the only applicant in Wisconsin. PPWI receives more than $3 million annually from Title X.

LRB 2674/1 would require the DHS to apply, on an annual basis, for family planning grant funds under Title X of the federal Public Health Service Act and to distribute funds received first to public entities, including state, county, and local health departments and health clinics. If any moneys remain after those distributions, DHS may then distribute grant funds to nonpublic entities that are hospitals or federally qualified health centers that provide comprehensive primary and preventive care. Under this bill, a public entity that receives family planning and preventive health services grant funds may provide some or all of the funds to other public or private entities provided that the recipient of the funds does not provide abortion services, make referrals for abortion services, or have an affiliate that provides abortion services or makes referrals for abortion services.

ACT NOW: Bills Circulating in State Legislature to Ban the Sale and Use of Aborted Baby Body Parts/Defund Planned Parenthood of Wisconsin

State Representatives Andre Jacque (R-DePere) and Joel Kleefisch (R-Oconomowoc) are currently circulating for co-sponsorship legislation that would ban the sale and use of aborted human fetal body parts.

Disturbed by the Latest Planned Parenthood Video? Here Are 3 Things You Can Do TODAY!

ActionAlertIn case you haven’t heard, the Center for Medical Progress just released another video exposing Planned Parenthood’s trafficking in baby body parts. This one is just as shocking as the first one, if not more so. In it, Dr. Mary Gatter, a Planned Parenthood employee, haggles on prices with undercover activists posing as representatives of a biotech company. At the end, she chillingly jokes that she hopes to buy a Lamborghini with the profit she makes on the sale of baby body parts.

We’ve known this has been going on for decades, but the callousness of these videos are still shocking and horrifying. If you’re disturbed, don’t worry, you can take action to put an end to this evil practice here in Wisconsin. Here are three things you can do today:

ACT NOW: Rep. Jacque Renews Legislative Effort to Halt Trafficking of Aborted Baby Body Parts, Defund Planned Parenthood of Wisconsin

In the wake of last week’s undercover video revelation of Planned Parenthood affiliates across the nation employing the illegal partial birth abortion procedure to extract and sell intact fetal body parts, State Representative Andre Jacque(R-DePere) announced his renewed push to ban the sale and use of aborted human fetal body parts and defund Planned Parenthood of Wisconsin (PPWI), the state’s largest abortion provider.

In his press statement, Rep. Jacque explained, “In the coming week, I will be unveiling two proposals which combined are expected to eliminate half or more of the funding each year that Planned Parenthood gets in Wisconsin, by ending the massive overbilling of Medicaid and taxpayers through abuse of the 340 B program and by reprioritizing Title X (family planning) funds to public health programs and agencies. I’ll also be renewing my efforts on the state level with an updated version of 2013 AB 224 to protect the dignity of human life and end the trafficking of aborted baby body parts by preventing their sale, transfer or experimentation.”

State Representative Jesse Kremer (R- Nekoosa) is calling on Governor Walker and Health Secretary Kitty Rhoades to launch a state investigation of PPWI to assess whether they traffic in human fetal body parts and whether any state and federal laws have been violated. Rep. Kremer explained in his press statement that “Wisconsin has the right to know if illegal partial birth abortions and the selling of unborn baby body parts is occurring right here in our state, and I ask the Secretary of the Department of Health Services, Governor Scott Walker, and my fellow legislative leaders to act quickly to ensure our state law is being obeyed.” State Senator Duey Stroebel (R-Saukville) and State RepresentativesDavid Craig (R-Big Bend) and Romaine Quinn(R-Rice Lake) are also publicly backing Rep. Kremer’s call for a state investigation.

Last week Pro-Life Wisconsin (PLW) Legislative Director Matt Sande was interviewed on Up Front with Vicki McKenna, WIBA Radio 1310 Madison, stating that the undercover video “exposes the coarseness and brutality of the abortion industry, kind of like a Gosnell moment that brings the barbarity of abortion to the fore of the American conscience.” Sande also explained PLW’s strong effort over the past two legislative sessions to ban the sale and use of aborted fetal body parts in Wisconsin and to fully defund PPWI, calling on Wisconsinites to contact Governor Walker and their state legislators and urge them to back the efforts of Reps. Jacque and Kremer.

High Time to Pass State Ban on Sale and Use of Aborted Fetal Body Parts

deborah-nucatola-planned-parenthood-body-parts-lower-extremetiesThe Center for Medical Progress released an undercover video yesterday revealing that Planned Parenthood affiliates across the nation employ the partial birth abortion procedure to extract and sell intact fetal body parts. Dr. Deborah Nucatola, a UW Madison graduate and abortionist serving as senior director of medical services at Planned Parenthood since February 2009, stated that she charges $30 to $100 per specimen and that fetal livers, hearts and lungs are especially in demand. Pro-Life Wisconsin Legislative Director Matt Sande offered the following comments:

“That the abortion industry, including Planned Parenthood, profits from the sale of aborted human fetal body parts is no shock to Pro-Life Wisconsin. A 2000 fetal brain cell study conducted by Su-Chun Zhang of the UW-Madison Department of Medical Sciences used immature neural cells from fetal human brain tissue of 15-20 gestation weeks ‘after elective termination of intrauterine pregnancies’ to study neurological disorders. The study acknowledged former Madison abortionist Dr. Dennis Christenson for his ‘assistance in this project.’

“A 1999 fetal pancreatic tissue study conducted by D.A. MacKenzie, H.W. Sollinger, and D.A. Hullet of the UW-Madison Department of Surgery studied human fetal pancreases (HFP) as a potential source of transplantable islets for the treatment of advanced Type 1 diabetes. Human fetal pancreases between 13-20 weeks gestation were obtained ‘with informed maternal consent following elective abortions at local clinics.’

“The past two legislative sessions Pro-Life Wisconsin has strongly supported legislation authored by Representative Andre Jacque that would prohibit the sale and use of aborted human fetal body parts. The legislation bans persons from knowingly and for valuable consideration acquiring, receiving, or transferring a fetal body part. It also bans persons from knowingly providing, receiving, or using for experimentation a fetal body part. We look forward to Representative Jacque reintroducing a ban on the sale and use of aborted fetal body parts and urge a concerted effort by the full legislature to finally pass it.

“The preborn aborted child did not consent to his or her abortion, and certainly did not consent to his or her experimentation. Human dignity demands that our aborted brothers and sisters receive a proper burial, not to mention their full protection as persons under the law. Federal law prohibits the interstate trafficking of human fetal body parts. Wisconsin’s intrastate commercial activity must have a similar prohibition so that we can guarantee the highest ethical standards of academic research and medical care in our state.”

BARBARIC: Planned Parenthood Harvests Organs from Late-Term Babies, Sells Them For a Profit

Barbaric. Sickening. Unspeakable evil. Those are some of the words that come to mind after watching the latest undercover video exposing Planned Parenthood’s practice of selling body parts from aborted babies.

In the video released by the Center for Medical Progress, Planned Parenthood’s Senior Director of Medical Services, Dr. Deborah Nucatola discusses how baby body parts are routinely trafficked, even going so far as to name which organs are in demand and how they crush the baby carefully so as not to damage any organs.

“We’ve been very good at getting heart, lung, liver…I’m not gonna crush that part. I’m gonna basically crush below, I’m gonna crush above, and I’m gonna see if I can get it all intact. ”

Watch the horrifying undercover video below.

Bella’s Story

Young-motherOn occasion, PLW gets phone calls from a young, scared, pregnant moms in need of help.  One such occasion happened on April 1, 2015 – no fooling!

Our Office Manager picked up the call and started walking as far as her telephone cord would reach, in the direction of my office.  Bonnie started waving her hand trying to get my attention.  I could tell by the tone of Bonnie’s voice and her body language that it was a crisis call – so I dropped what I was doing – and picked up the call.

I introduced myself to the young lady on the phone, “Hi, this is Dan.  I’m the State Director of Pro-Life Wisconsin.  How are you doing, *Bella?”  Bella asked if we helped women who were pregnant.  I said, “Absolutely!  Depending on what type of help you need, I may be able to refer to another organization – but, what’s on your mind?”  Bella went on to say that she was about 16 weeks pregnant, her boyfriend had left her after finding out she was pregnant, and that he, her mom and grandmother wanted her to have an abortion.  Her boyfriend had become their sole provider – and now he was gone.  As in moved out with no note – that type of gone.  Bella’s grandmother offered to take her to the abortion facility and pay for the abortion.  Bella knew she didn’t want an abortion – but the walls were moving in, closer and closer every day.  That’s when she decided to google pro-life organizations – and we were at the top of the list.

After hearing about all the pressure that Bella was experiencing – I simply asked, “What can we do, right now, to help?”  I was waiting for her to say, rent, food, money – all the big items.  But, Bella said, “What I really need right now is a ride to my job interview.  I need a job – and my car is in a total state of disrepair.”  I asked, “When is the job interview?”  She responded, “Today, in three hours.”  I responded, “What side of town are you on?”  She said, “East-side.”  The job interview was on the south-west side.  We had to get going to get her there on time!  I told our Office Manager that whatever plans she had for the rest of the day she should scrap – and she went with.  We didn’t get home until 8pm that evening – but Bella got to the interview on time – and all was calm, for the moment.  A week-and-a-half later, Bella’s ride for a 2nd interview had bailed on her.  She called me again.  We dropped everything again and got her there.

As Bella began to recruit friends to help her move out – she was missing one thing.  Gas money!  She asked for a cash donation for this big SUV that a friend had borrowed her.  I told her I was really nervous about giving her cash – and I was up-front with her about it.  Every ounce of my being knows that cash in the hands of a woman being coerced for an abortion spells trouble.  I told her that I would gladly fill her tank up – but no cash.  We agreed on a spot to meet and filled up her SUV, which was running on fumes.  Over the course of time, I filled her gas tank up several times, with the help of one of our generous donors.

Thankfully, Bella’s dad was not pushing her to have an abortion – and agreed to let her stay with him until she could get back on her feet.  He even helped fix her car – so now she has her wheels back!  Her dad isn’t home much because of his work schedule – and there wasn’t much around to eat that she liked.  She texted me and asked if I could get her some cash so she could go buy some good food.  Again, I was very nervous about giving cash to a pregnant woman with so much pressure to abort.  We met half way, and decided to get her a ‘one-way’ gift-card at a store of her choosing.

Recently, Bella asked to meet again for a ‘fuel and food’ exchange.  Now she is at 28 weeks.  It was around dinner-time, so I offered to get her a meal while we were meeting – where we had a chance to talk for a while longer than the ‘typical’ amount of time it took to fill up her gas tank.  As we were standing in line to get our food, I received a phone call from my sister, informing me that her son was about to be admitted to the hospital for appendicitis – and he wanted to talk to me.  My nephew was scared.  I tried to reassure him that everything would be OK.  Bella overheard our conversation.  I came right out and told her that my nephew was being admitted for appendicitis.  She said, “Well, what are you doing here?!  You should go!”  I said, “Yeah, I should – but we’re here, I’m hungry and I know you are, too.  I haven’t stopped all day to eat, so this is OK.  I’ve got to eat!”  After we got our food, I asked if we could pause to say a prayer of thanks for the food we were about to eat.  She agreed – and then wanted to talk about God.  So we did.  Her perspective on God is really amazing!  During our conversation, Bella said, “I just wanted to thank you for all you’ve done.  I don’t think I could have done it without you.”  I brushed it off somewhat, saying, “I don’t feel like we did much of anything.  We gave you a ride to your job interviews and bought you gas and food – that’s about it.”  Bella said, “Yeah, but I needed to be around people who didn’t want me to have an abortion.  You gave me that – and I needed that – so thank you.  The stories you’ve told me about your pro-life work make me cry, Dan.  You are really something else.”  I said, “Your baby is my sister in Christ, just as you are.  It’s a great honor and privilege to be a part of this journey with you in this small way.  You are very welcome!”  YOU READ THAT RIGHT!  SHE’S A GIRL!

Bella went on to tell me about how she got a part-time job and had been going to second-hand shops getting baby items.  I said, “No, no, no!  You need that money for basic necessities!  We can help get you the baby items!  How about we throw you a baby shower?!”  Bella looked astonished.  “You’d do that for us, really?”  I said, “Yeah, of course!  Are you kidding me?  I’ve been waiting for this day to come – and here it is!  How about it?”

This is where you come in!  Bella has put together a ‘wish-list’ of things she’ll need when her baby is born.  You can purchase them outright at this establishment – or make an online donation to Pro-Life Wisconsin and mark it ‘For Bella.’  We are going to present Bella with her items on Tuesday, July 28 at St. Jerome Parish in Oconomowoc– from 12:00 p.m. to 3 p.m.  Join us – and meet Bella live and in person!  Baby Bella’s due date is September 12th, 2015.

BUSINESS LEADERS!  Bella is a sharp, intelligent woman looking for a good, solid job.  Her forte is in sales & marketing.  We will have resumes on hand for anyone who would have an interest in interviewing her after Baby Bella is born!

Prayers Answered: Planned Parenthood in Washington D.C. Closes

DSC06082
Pro-Life Wisconsin pilgrims praying outside the Washington D.C. abortion clinic during the 2014 March for Life.

Year after year, Pro-Life Wisconsin pilgrims would faithfully pray outside the Planned Parenthood abortion facility in Washington D.C. during the annual March for Life. They prayed for an end to an abortion, that all mothers who were considering abortion would choose life, and for the conversion of workers in the abortion industry.

Now, God has answered our prayers! We are thrilled to announce that Planned Parenthood in Washinton D.C. has CLOSED!! LifeSiteNew reports:

A flier posted on the door of the Planned Parenthood abortion clinic in Washington, D.C. has announced its closure as of June 26, 2015.

Planned Parenthood has indicated that it plans to open a new facility in the Washington, D.C. area sometime in the future to replace the old 16th Street clinic, which has been the site of intensive pro-life activity over the years.

“It may be many months before a new facility is ready, if ever. In the meantime, Planned Parenthood will not be killing babies in the nation’s capital, and that is great news,” said Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue. “This closure is a huge victory for pro-life activists who have worked to save babies from abortion and even suffered wrongful arrests there.”
