Citing a July decision, two Planned Parenthood clinics in Wisconsin resume performing abortions

Published on

Following a year of protection, unborn babies in Wisconsin are once again at risk of lethal harm. On Monday, Planned Parenthood’s clinics in Milwaukee and Madison resumed providing abortion services.

The Supreme Court’s 22 June 2022 Dobbs decision, which overturned Roe v. Wade, prompted a temporary halt to the proceedings. This was due to the fact that the 1849 Wisconsin law, which providers interpreted as banning almost all abortions, was triggered. This information was provided by Miranda Nazzaro of the Associated Press.

However, those in favour of abortion were not slow to react. In the wake of the Dobbs decision, Wisconsin’s pro-abortion Attorney General Josh Kaul initiated legal proceedings in Dane County, challenging the constitutionality of the relevant legislation.

In July, Dane County Circuit Court Judge Diane Schlipper ruled against a motion to dismiss Kaul’s lawsuit, stating that it could proceed. Our Sunday Visitor reported on this development. In her written decision, Judge Schlipper stated that she found the 1849 law to be applicable only in cases of “feticide,” which was defined as “an act or instance of killing a fetus, usually by assaulting and battering” CNN reported. The decision of Judge Schlipper prompted the Planned Parenthood decision to resume performing abortions in the state.

The announcement from Planned Parenthood follows the anticipated decision of Judge Schlipper to prohibit prosecutors from pursuing legal action against abortion providers under the 1849 law. Alexander Shur has reported that this lawsuit may eventually be decided in the Wisconsin Supreme Court.

This is a day of great sorrow for preborn children and women facing unexpected pregnancies in Wisconsin, according to Gracie Skogman, Wisconsin Right to Life’s legislative/PAC director. “Once again, Planned Parenthood has demonstrated a clear prioritization of financial gain over the lives of vulnerable women and children.”

Skogman proceeded to argue that abortion is not healthcare. He asserted that it results in the deaths of innocent children and causes significant pain and suffering for many women.

Heather Weininger, the executive director of Wisconsin Right to Life, has stated that Planned Parenthood is more concerned with maintaining its financial stability and retaining abortion funding in Wisconsin than with providing assistance to women experiencing unplanned pregnancies. “As we endeavoured to ensure that women were provided with resources to assist them during an unplanned pregnancy, Planned Parenthood of Wisconsin was devising strategies to enhance their profit margins by terminating the pregnancies of unborn children in Wisconsin.”

Wisconsin Right to Life will persist in its efforts to ensure the full protection of preborn life and to provide comprehensive support for women confronting unexpected or challenging pregnancies.

In a statement released to the press, Wisconsin Assembly Speaker Robin Vos expressed his intention to engage in a moment of prayer for all unborn children who, as a consequence of the decisions made by politicians, will no longer have the opportunity to be born.
