Wisconsin anti-abortion groups set legislative agenda; 20-week ban, conscience rules on tap


MADISON, Wis. — Wisconsin anti-abortion groups are gearing up for another legislative session, with plans to push for a new ban on abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy and to revive a host of initiatives that went nowhere last time around.

The anti-abortion lobby scored a huge victory last session when the GOP-controlled Legislature passed a law requiring abortion providers to obtain admitting privileges at nearby hospitals. Republicans retained their majorities in the Assembly and Senate in November’s elections, setting the stage for more wins for anti-abortion groups. Republican leaders aren’t publicly committing to anything, but Democrats are already fuming.

“These extremist groups and their Republican allies will not stop until abortion and birth control are inaccessible in Wisconsin,” said Rep. Chris Taylor, D-Madison.



Very good for the Badger State, The Dairy State and oh, dear, Green Bay lost today and going off topic a bit, what a game.


Praise God!!!
