Tax Funded Abortion in Wisconsin?

Posted: Tuesday, March 16th, 2010

Many of us shutter at the thought that a proposed national health care initiative will require taxpayers to fund abortions. If you are in that number and living in Wisconsin, start shuttering. According to prolifewisconsin, org, "the University of Wisconsin Hospital and Clinics (UWHC) has been funding medical students' rotations at Planned Parenthood, training medical students in abortion procedures. State law prohibits taxpayer funding of elective abortions." "The mountain of evidence continues to build showing UW's deceit, " said Peggy Hamill, state director. "I challenge UW and UWHC officials to prove they have not violated state law." Statute 20.927 of Wisconsin law prohibits any such use of taxpayer money, even money coming from the federal government. (The statute may be read here: http://nxt.legis.state.wi.us/nxt/gateway.dll?f=templates&fn=default.htm&d=stats&jd=ch.%2020)

Nevertheless, "medical students in the UW School of Medicine Ob/Gyn Department have two four-week rotations at Planned Parenthood, where they view and participate in abortions, " the article goes on to say. "As a UW graduate, I am deeply ashamed my alma mater is funding the destruction of innocent human life and training future baby killers, " said Virginia Zignego, communications director. "UW's blood runs red, indeed."
