Wisconsin governor signs ultrasound bill

July 09, 2013

Gov. Scott Walker has signed into law a measure that requires Wisconsin abortion clinics to offer women the option of viewing an ultrasound of their unborn child. The Wisconsin Catholic Conference had offered testimony on behalf of the legislation.

“In every other medical procedure, women are offered the opportunity to see their sonogram and mammogram images, chest and bone x-rays, etc.,” said Barbara Sella, associate director of the Wisconsin Catholic Conference. “Abortion providers should routinely do the same.”

A federal judge has blocked enforcement of separate Wisconsin legislation requiring abortionists to have hospital-admitting privileges.
