Oh Dear Heavens - UPDATED

The Georgia Senate actually passed that damn bill.
http://www.legis.state.ga.us/legis/2009_10/sum/sb169.htm

Resolve has posted that they will review the revised version of the bill and post a full analysis as soon as they know more.

Okay, found the revised version of the bill:

Here's the bill as passed:

http://www.legis.state.ga.us/legis/2009_10/fulltext/sb169.htm

It essentially took out all the provisions relating to numbers of embryos created, numbers of embryos transferred and ownership of embryos.

It leaves in all the language that would ban use or donation of embryos for stem cell research.

Still completely offends me, but at least it doesn't essentially ban IVF all together, which the original bill practically did.
