The plan is to have a UW clinic provide second trimester abortions. Here are details from the Wisconsin State Journal.
Thank God state Senator Glenn Grothman is asking tough questions.
Here's a press release about this travesty issued by Wisconsin Right to Life:
Wisconsin Right to Life Condemns UW Hospitals and Clinics, UW Foundation and Meriter Hospital Decision to Perform Second Trimester Abortions
Plan Re-Ignites Public Indignation Over Babies Who Survived Abortion Attempts at These Hospitals
For immediate release: Wednesday, January 7, 2009
“Wisconsin Right to Life unequivocally condemns the decision by UW Hospitals and Clinics, the UW Medical Foundation and Meriter Hospital to open up a secondtrimester abortion operation at the Madison Surgery Center,” declared Barbara Lyons, Executive Director of Wisconsin Right to Life. “The decision brings these medical facilities full circle back to the early 1980s when six babies within a short time span survived abortion attempts within their corridors.”
In 1982-83, two babies survived abortion attempts at UW Hospitals and Clinics and four babies survived abortion attempts at Madison General Hospital (now known as Meriter Hospital). All of the babies died within 27 hours of birth. The abortions were performed up to the 26th week of pregnancy.
“Intense public outcry rose from these live births which were the subject of numerous media articles,” stated Lyons. “Wisconsin Right to Life will join other organizations to work to overturn this horrendous decision which is a blight on what should be the life-saving, not life-taking, work of medical professionals and facilities.”
