Planned Parenthood Wisconsin Shuts Down Clinic After Walker Signs Abortion Law

The ultrasound bill Governor Scott Walker signed on Friday has already paid dividends. The Planned Parenthood abortion business has shut down one clinic in Appleton and another facility end abortions at another center in Green Bay.

From a local news story:
The law also requires that in order to legally perform an abortion, a doctor must have admitting privileges at a hospital within 30 miles of where the abortion will occur.
Planned Parenthood says that provision will force its Appleton clinic to close, and will lead to long waiting lists in Milwaukee.
“If there’s a long waiting list, that’s a real problem for women getting access. It’s a problem for their health. It can lead to tragic consequences. Just the sheer distance is a tremendous barrier,” Huyck said.
Planned Parenthood says the law will have an immediate impact. It is preparing to close its Appleton clinic on Monday.
