On Friday, Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker signed a forced ultrasound bill that will also require abortion providers to have admitting privileges at a hospital within 30 miles. In 2012, Walker also signed major anti-choice legislation, a telemed abortion ban, in the lead-in to a holiday weekend.
Anti-abortion lawmakers in Wisconsin rush through an admitting privileges law and advocates immediate sue to block it.
According to the anti-choice action group, “tons of doctors” approve of the new anti-choice bills mandating how physicians interact with patients. But national and state physicians’ groups are not on board.
Anti-choice politicians in Wisconsin are gathering sponsors for “Sonya’s Law,” an anti-choice bill named after a woman who chose to continue a pregnancy after receiving an ultrasound.
