“Today, it was confirmed that not only are Senate Republicans advancing a dangerous piece of legislation, they have no idea what’s in it. Legislative Council confirmed that under the abortion ban authored by Senator Lazich in a doctor determined medical emergency where termination is necessary, the doctor is required to focus on the fetus and the bill is SILENT on the mother.”

“This is contrary to the answers that Senator Lazich provided 48 hours ago at the public hearing. Even offering a simple change to apply current law protections to women, to mothers, was unacceptable to Senate Republicans.  Let me be clear, today the Republicans on the Senate Committee on Health and Human Services refused to guarantee women across the state of Wisconsin life-saving protections, and increased confusion for the doctors providing their care.”
