The  Associated Press reports that the Wisconsin legislature passed Sonya’s Law, a bill that requires women seeking abortions to have an ultrasound and requires doctors that do abortions at private facilities to have admitting privileges at nearby hospitals. Governor Scott Walker has signed the bill into law. Planned Parenthood and the American Civil Liberties Union filed suit immediately seeking a restraining order to prevent the new law from taking effect on Monday.  The legislators were democratically elected. Walker was democratically elected (essentially twice after a failed recall effort). The judges are the last hope for those pro-aborts seeking to thwart the will of the people.

In a press release, Planned Parenthood of Wisconsin says that they may have to close two of their abortuaries, resulting in halving their capacity in the state. It is strange that an organization that claims abortion is such a minor part of what it does for women as it supposedly mostly does mammograms and provide other women’s health services, that restricting abortion would put them out of business; as a PP fact sheet states, “Three percent of all Planned Parenthood health services are abortion services” (their emphasis). Kind of makes  you think that figure is either untrue or misleading (3% of services but a majority of their revenue).
