Pro-Life Wisconsin Testifies on Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act


Rep. Brandtjen introduces amendment to remove life-of-the-mother exception



On Tuesday, June 2, Pro-Life Wisconsin Legislative Director Matt Sande testified before a joint hearing of the state Senate and Assembly health committees on the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act (SB 179 & AB 237), legislation that would prohibit direct abortion at or beyond 20 weeks based on the preborn child’s capacity to feel pain at that gestational age.
 
Please read Matt’s full testimony HERE, and please listen to Matt’s testimony on WisconsinEye HERE starting at 2:32:30 (Internet Explorer only). He urged committee members to remove the medical emergency / life-of-the-mother exception in the legislation.
 
Pro-Life Wisconsin supports legislation shielding preborn children from the excruciating pain of late-term dilation and evacuation dismemberment abortions. But we cannot support SB 179/AB 237 in its current form because it includes an exception for a “medical emergency,” as defined in section 253.10 of the Wisconsin Statutes. Because the term medical emergency is defined to allow direct abortion, the medical emergency language in the bill constitutes an unacceptable life-of-the-mother exception.
 
Pro-Life Wisconsin applauds State Representative Janel Brandtjen (R-Menomonee Falls) for introducing Assembly Amendment 1 to AB 237 that would remove the medical emergency / life-of-the-mother exception in the legislation. Janel’s principled and courageous stand in support of a clean, no-exceptions fetal pain bill is pro-life leadership at its best. Thank you Janel!
