Joint Hearing Set for June 2: 20-week Abortion Ban in Wisconsin

Tuesday, June 2nd
TIME: 10 am

Joint hearing for the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act
WI State Capitol
Room 417 North

There is overwhelming scientific evidence that indicates unborn babies at 20 weeks can feel pain. 

Next Tuesday, June 2, the Assembly and Senate Health Committees will hold a joint public hearing on Wisconsin’s version of the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection bill. This bill would ban abortions, in non-emergency situations, on unborn children at or beyond 20 weeks gestation, based on the child’s ability to feel pain. There are no exceptions for rape or incest. The bill is authored by Senator Mary Lazich and Representative Jesse Kremer and has 30 co-sponsors. Governor Walker has said he will sign the bill.

100 pro lifeJulaine Appling, president of Wisconsin Family Action states, “We love the concept of this bill. Babies, especially those at 20 weeks gestation, feel real pain. Unfortunately we can’t unconditionally support the proposal because it has an unnecessary medical emergency exception. We’ve worked with the authors and will continue to push for language that will make this bill the very best it can be.”
