Two abortion bills coming up for a vote, another for a public hearing

Posted:

MADISON (WKOW) -- The Assembly Committee on Health will vote on two abortion-related bills Wednesday afternoon before holding a public hearing on another.

The Committee will vote on AB 216, which would prohibit most public employee health insurance plans from paying for abortions. It would also allow some religious employers to offer health insurance plans that do not provide coverage for birth control.

The Committee will also vote on AB 217, which would allow the family members of an aborted fetus to sue an abortion provider, if they believe the abortion was only performed due to the sex of the fetus.

After votes on those bills, the Committee on Health will hold a public hearing on AB 227, which would require a woman to have an ultrasound before being allowed to give informed consent to have an abortion.
