Sonya's Law hearing to be held Wednesday, July 17th

The enactment of Sonya's Law is a great victory for women and babies. Kudos to Gov. Scott Walker for signing it!.

Sonya's Law requires women be given the opportunity to see their unborn children through ultrasound 24 hours prior to an abortion and requiring abortionists to have hospital admitting privileges. Sonya's Law was Wisconsin Right to Life's top legislative priority for this legislative session.

As expected, the law has been challenged by opponents of the new law. Planned Parenthood of Wisconsin, Affliliated Medical Services and Wisconsin ACLU are challenging the law in federal court.

A court hearing will be held on July 17. We'll keep you posted!
