Wisconsin lawmakers are pleading with the University of Wisconsin Hospital to abandon a plan to offer second-trimester abortions.
The school announced plans recently to set up an operation to do late-term abortions in Madison, and the Associated Press notes there has been a flurry of criticism. Twenty-eight Republican senators, along with one Independent, said second-trimester abortions are "barbaric" and "kill viable babies." Senator Glenn Grothman of West Bend calls it appalling that the university hospital would be affiliated with late-term abortions.
