WI Supreme Court Will Hear Abortion Cases


The Wisconsin Supreme Court on Tuesday ruled that it would hear two cases filed by Attorney General Josh Kaul and Planned Parenthood that will determine if the state constitution includes a right to abortion. Additionally, the Court ruled that it would not allow the state’s three largest pro-life groups to intervene in the lawsuits. The groups, Wisconsin Right to Life, Wisconsin Family Action, and Pro-Life Wisconsin, will be allowed to file friend-of-the-court briefs.

This issued decision confirms what the leaked document indicated last week. The decision while profoundly disappointing is not unexpected—although I was surprised by the court denying the pro-life groups from intervening. When Janet Protaciewicz won in April of twenty-three, we knew this very situation would likely happen. Elections really do have consequences.
