Public Hearing on Bill Prohibiting UW Employees from Performing Abortions

via Pro-Life WI

State Representative André Jacque (R-De Pere) and State Senator Chris Kapenga (R-Delafield) have introduced companion legislation (Assembly Bill 206 / Senate Bill 154) that would prohibit both UW System and UW Hospital & Clinics Authority employees from performing or assisting in the performance of abortions while in the scope of their employment.

Assembly Bill 206/Senate Bill 154 would effectively end UW medical resident abortion training and UW faculty performance of abortions at the Madison Planned Parenthood abortion facility, a grisly arrangement that stains the reputation of Wisconsin’s public university system and flagship hospital.

The Assembly Science and Technology Committee will hold a public hearing on AB 206 tomorrow Tuesday, July 18 at 10:00 a.m. in Room 417 North (GAR Hall) of the State Capitol.

Pro-Life Wisconsin Legislative Director Matt Sande will testify in support of AB 206. Cynthia Jones-Nosacek, MD and James Linn, MD, president and vice-president of the Milwaukee Guild of the Catholic Medical Association, respectively, will also testify in support of AB 206.
