Planned Parenthood Wisconsin won’t perform abortions after June 25th. The nation is waiting for a Supreme Court decision. Roe v. Wade, ABC affiliate WISN reported.
If 1973 is invalidated by the Supreme Court Roe v. Wade decision, which ruled that abortion is a right protected by the U.S. Constitution, Wisconsin’s 1849 law prohibiting abortion will go back into effect. The law only allows abortion if the woman’s life is at risk. According to the report, Planned Parenthood has suspended appointments and directed facilities outside of State in response.
“We’re looking at all our legal options that are available. We also have to look at the landscape of who is making decisions in Wisconsin, and what we want is to ensure abortion access in Wisconsin forever,”Tanya Atkinson was president and chief executive officer of Planned Parenthood of Wisconsin.

Politico published a leaked draft opinion in May related to Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, a case centered around Mississippi’s 15-week abortion ban and the most significant challenge to Roe v. Wade in decades. According to the leaked draft, it is possible for the court to overturn its decision. Roe v. Wade United States Constitution declares abortion as a protected right.
It is likely that the Court will release an official decision this month. If justices do not accept the decision in the leak draft, the decisions regarding abortion will be reverted to the States. Wisconsin Gov. Tony Evers (D) has asked Democrats in the state legislature to repeal Wisconsin’s pre-Roe law. The state’s Democrat attorney general also said he would not enforce the state’s pro-life law if the Supreme Court overturns its 1973 decision, Townhall reported:
For the repeal of Wisconsin’s illegal abortion ban, I will call for special session to the Legislature on June 22nd.
