Members of the UW System Board of Regents took advantage of Friday’s meeting in Whitewater to publically speak out against an Assembly bill that would make it a felony to conduct research with newly procured fetal tissue. Regents from both ends of the political spectrum including Gerald Whitburn, Charles Pruitt, Michael Grebe and Regent President Regina Millner characterized the legislation as over-reach, saying that ethical, vital, state-of-the-art research, especially at UW-Madison, would be imperiled if the bill passes. The Capital Times has coverage. For more on the fetal-tissue issue, and other items of interest from Friday’s meeting, see the UW System recap.
