Scott Walker Signs Bill Requiring Ultrasounds

And any clinic that performs abortions must have admitting privileges.

Hi, Scott Walker, it’s been a while since we’ve heard from you. The Wisconsin governor signed a bill on Friday that would require women to undergo ultrasounds before having an abortion and all doctors who perform the procedure to have admitting privileges at a local hospital. He said the bill would “improve a woman’s ability to make an informed choice that will protect her physical and mental health now and in the future.” Pro-choice advocates believe it will only close abortion clinics throughout the state and make it even harder for women to get abortions.
