Joint Finance Committee Action

Means No More Late-Term Abortion

Plans at Any UW Medical Facility

Saturday, June 4, 2011

Wisconsin Right to Life is praising action last night by the Joint Finance Committee that prohibits the UW Hospitals and Clinics Authority Board from paying physicians or surgeons or a hospital, clinic or other medical facility for the performance of an abortion except as specified in Wisconsin's current abortion-funding law.

The budget motion was offered by Senator Glenn Grothman and Representative Dan LeMahieu and was passed on a vote of 12 -4.  All Republican members of the committee voted for the motion with all Democrat members voting against the measure.  Representative Andre Jacque played a key leadership role in the development of the motion.

"Wisconsin Right to Life is deeply appreciative to the Joint Finance Committee for insuring that no UW funds will be used for the performance of abortions in any UW facility," said Susan Armacost, Legislative Director of Wisconsin Right to Life. "We remember only too well the brazen attempts of UW a couple of years ago to set up a late-term abortion facility at the Madison Surgery Center.  It was only because a huge outcry by the public and many employees of the Madison Surgery Center that UW finally backed down and nixed the deadly project.  The motion passed last night means that the UW Hospitals and Clinics Authority Board will no longer be able to plot behind the scenes to find ways to use taxpayer dollars to pay doctors and facilities to perform abortions."
