9-19-23 planned parenthood resumes offering abortions in wisconsin

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Planned Parenthood has resumed offering abortions in Wisconsin at clinics in Madison and Milwaukee. The resumption of services on Monday is the first time abortions have been available in the state since the U.S. Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade in June 2022. Providers across Wisconsin halted abortion services last year for fear that an 1849 state law appearing to outlaw the procedure would spring back into effect. But a judge last month ruled that the law doesn’t apply to medical abortions. The lawsuit over the 1849 law is ongoing and expected to end in the state Supreme Court, which recently flipped to liberal control.
