WI GOP Introduce Abortion Bill Up to 14 Weeks


Last Friday assembly and senate republicans introduced a bill that allows for abortions up until fourteen weeks post fertilization or twelve gestational weeks. This legislation employs a dual-step process before it can become enacted into law. First, the bill must move through the legislative process in both houses, just like any piece of legislation, and then be signed into effect by the Governor. Following that, it must be approved by the voters statewide this spring.

The Heal Without Harm Coalition, which is all of the state’s leading pro-life organizations—Pro-Life Wisconsin, Wisconsin Catholic Conference, Wisconsin Family Action, and Wisconsin Right to Life—has come out strongly against this bill mostly because the pre-Roe abortion ban is still being litigated in the courts. In addition, who really thinks the governor will sign this bill?
