A medical student in Wisconsin who supports full-term abortions told a public hearing Monday that she would leave the state if she could not perform abortions or get the proper training to do so.
During a hearing before lawmakers at the state Capitol, pro-life and pro-choice people applauded and criticized, respectively, a bill that would ban abortion after 14 weeks.
Republican State Rep. Amanda Nedweski and Republican State Sen. Mary Felzkowski, who co-authored the bill, said the proposal was made to appease those who wanted either a total abortion ban or no restrictions on abortions.
Critics of the bill took issue with the fact that it does not include exceptions for rape or incest. The only exception for the 14-week proposal is in cases where the mother's life or health may be at risk.
