State Senate for Passage of Bill to

Protect Women Seeking Abortions

Wednesday, February 22, 2012

  “Thanks to Senator Mary Lazich and the State Senate, Wisconsin took a giant step forward towards protecting women seeking abortions through passage of SB 306, the Coercive and Web Cam Abortion Prevention Act,” stated Barbara Lyons, Executive Director of Wisconsin Right to Life.   “For far too long, numbers of women have reported that they were coerced into having abortions.  SB 306, passed by a 17-15 vote, ensures that an assessment will be made to determine if a woman’s consent to an abortion is voluntary.”


  “In addition,” continued Lyons, “women will be further protected by requiring in person administration of chemical abortion-inducing drugs like RU 486.  This requirement would prohibit web cam abortions which are occurring in Iowa and Minnesota from being introduced into local communities in Wisconsin.”

 The FDA has reported over 2,200 adverse incidents since 2000 from use of abortion-inducing drugs, including the deaths of 14 women.   RU 486 abortions, administered after a woman has been diagnosed as being pregnant, are different from the morning after pill.

 “Finally, SB 306 repeals penalties to women who obtain abortions” stated Lyons.   “This repeal removes a conflict in the statues and ensures that once abortions become illegal again in Wisconsin, a woman who obtains an abortion cannot be fined or imprisoned.”      


Wisconsin Right to Life is the lead organization promoting the enactment of the Coercive and Web Cam Abortion Prevention Act.
