The House Children and Families Committee heard testimony Wednesday on HB 852, sponsored by Representative Sara Walsh (R-Ashland). HB 852 prohibits any public funds being used for research involving abortion services, human cloning, or other prohibited human research as defined in law. The House bill is similar to SB 398, sponsored by Senator Bill Eigel, (R-Weldon Spring), which was previously heard in a Senate committee. The MCC testified in favor of HB 852. It must now be voted out of committee to be considered by the entire House.
