A state senator is pushing his colleagues to stop allowing aborted fetuses to be used for medical experiments.
Sen. Andrew Jacque tells OneNewsNow that his bill would stop the trafficking, exploitation, use, or transfer of aborted children's body parts, and it would require recording the gender and type of handicap of aborted babies.
“As well as making sure that any human remains from an abortion,” he says, “are disposed of in a way that, whether that's burial, entombment, cremation, but in a way that is more respectful than currently, which is unfortunately as medical waste or put down the drain.”
The state senator insists no one can point to any medical advances that have occurred through aborted fetal tissue that could not have been done through other means, such as adult stem cells.
LifeNews.com reports that Sen. Jacque and Rep. Janel Brandtjen, both "pro-life Republicans," are circulating bills that would likely be vetoed by the state's Democratic governor.
