Wisconsin Governor Tony Evers has vowed to veto the abortion restriction bills that were passed by the state legislature last week.
One of the bills the body passed was the so-called “born alive” measure, which requires abortion providers to give care to babies who survive abortion attempts. Doctors could face prison time if they did not provide the necessary care.
Three additional measures related to abortion were passed, including one that bans a woman from having the procedure based on the fetus’ race, sex or defects. The Assembly also voted to eliminate the remaining bit of public funding that is available for Planned Parenthood.
