Planned Parenthood to fight Wisconsin abortion change

Jul. 5, 2013
 

MADISON — Planned Parenthood is poised to challenge provisions that would require women seeking an abortion to view an ultrasound of the fetus before the procedure as soon as they become law.

The Republican-controlled Legislature passed a bill last month that would require abortion providers to point out a fetusí features on the ultrasound and have admitting privileges at a hospital within 30 miles to perform the procedure.

Planned Parenthood contends the language is designed to shut down its Appleton clinic. None of the providers there have hospital admitting privileges within 30 miles.

Republican Gov. Scott Walker is expected to sign the bill into law but itís unclear when. Planned Parenthoodís attorneys said Friday they plan to file a federal lawsuit alleging the provisions are unconstitutional as soon as Walker takes action.
