Legislative Update – Wisconsin’s Pro-Life Bills and More

Wisconsin Family Action president Julaine Appling gives a legislative update from the steps of the Wisconsin State Capitol following a vote by the Executive Session Committee on Health and Human Services on two pro-life bills AB216 and AB217. The measures that previously passed the Assembly could be taken up by the Senate as soon as Tuesday, its last scheduled day to be in session this year.

One bill would ban abortions based on the sex of the baby (AB217/SB201). Another would prohibit the state health insurance from covering abortions as well as exempt religious organizations from providing insurance coverage for contraceptives (AB216/SB202).
