Wisconsin abortion providers challenge law on admitting privileges

E-mail Print PDF

wisconsin abortion law challengedAbortion providers in Wisconsin tried Tuesday to persuade a federal judge that a state law requiring them to have hospital admitting privileges was unnecessary and harmful to women seeking the procedure.

Planned Parenthood and Affiliated Medical Services contend the law will force AMS's Milwaukee clinic to close because providers there lack such admitting privileges. State attorneys counter that the law provides continuity of care if complications arise.

Wisconsin is one of a handful of states in which abortion opponents recently got laws passed requiring doctors to have hospital admitting privileges. Abortion clinics in Alabama have filed a lawsuit similar to the one in Wisconsin.

Planned Parenthood and AMS filed their lawsuit in Wisconsin on 5July, the same day Republican governor Scott Walker signed the Republican-backed legislation.
