Univ. of Wis. Hospitals confirms it will end late-term abortion program

Exposed program threatened religious conscience rights, risked misusing state funds

MADISON, Wis. — The University of Wisconsin Hospitals and Clinics officially confirmed Tuesday that it has abandoned its plans to provide full-service, second-trimester abortion services in a jointly operated facility or in any other facility it controls.  In May, the Alliance Defense Fund obtained a letter from the Wisconsin Department of Justice stating that the University of Wisconsin Hospitals and Clinics had stopped pursuing the plan, but UWHC then made public comments that indicated they weren’t fully giving up at that time, despite public pressure brought to bear by ADF and its allies.
