Proposed bill would allow families to file suit for wrongful death of fetus

by

DE PERE, WI (WTAQ) - Parents could sue for the wrongful deaths of their unborn children, under a bill proposed by two Republican lawmakers.

Representative Andre Jacque of De Pere and Senator Glenn Grothman of West Bend said the measure would recognize fetuses as human beings.

Families could pursue wrongful death claims if someone causes the death of an unborn child at any point after conception.

Under state law, the families of dead youngsters can pursue wrongful death claims – but for not those in the early stages of pregnancy.

During the last session, and this now this one, Jacque tried to get his Republican colleagues to approve a “personhood” amendment to the state Constitution – but it never went anywhere.

That amendment would have legally recognized a person at the moment an egg is fertilized in the mother – and it would have eliminated the word “born” from the state’s guarantee that “all people are born free and independent.”
