Planned Parenthood resumes abortions in Wisconsin

by ian

It’s a sad day for the pro-life movement. More than a year after the overturning of Roe v. Wade, Planned Parenthood is again offering abortions in Wisconsin.

This comes after the abortion giant shut down its services in the state last June when an existing abortion law from 1849 went back into effect. Specifically, the law makes it illegal for “Any person, other than the mother” to “intentionally destroy the life of an unborn child” while providing exceptions for cases when the life of the mother is in danger.

Democratic Attorney General Josh Kaul challenged the law in court, with the judge ultimately ruling that it doesn’t apply to abortion. Rather, the judge found the law prohibits attacks against a pregnant mother that would kill her unborn child.

Wisconsin Right to Life released a statement in which it called Planned Parenthood’s return to operations “a devastating day for preborn children.”
