Wisconsin Governor Signs TRAP Law, Including Pre-Abortion Ultrasound Mandate
NPR: Abortion Providers Sue As Wisconsin Governor Signs Bill, by Dana Farrington:
Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker has signed a bill that would require women seeking an abortion to get an ultrasound. The bill also puts restrictions on doctors who perform abortions, reports Marti Mikkelson of member station WUWM in Milwaukee.
Mikkelson tells our Newscast Desk that the bill, passed by the Republican-controlled Legislature in June, would "prohibit doctors from performing abortions unless they have admitting privileges at a local hospital." . . .
