The home team should ensure that the American flag is in good condition. It should be pointed out to players and coaches that we continue to be judged by the public in this area of respect for the flag and our country.

Wis. gov signs abortion bill mandating admitting privileges, ultrasound; opponents vow to sue

Gov. Scott Walker quietly signed a contentious Republican bill Friday that would require women seeking abortions to undergo an ultrasound and ban doctors who lack admitting privileges at nearby hospitals from performing the procedures.

Opponents contend legislators shouldn't force women to undergo any medical procedure and the bill will force at least two abortion clinics where providers lack admitting privileges to shut their doors.

The Republican-controlled Legislature passed the bill in mid-June. Walker, a Republican, could have chosen to sign it at any time since then but decided to do it on Friday in the middle of the long 4th of July holiday weekend. The measure's opponents accused him of trying to bury news of the signing.

"That's his prerogative. He's the governor," said Planned Parenthood of Wisconsin attorney Lester Pines. "But he's not going to win a profile in courage award."

Walker did not sign the bill in public, instead issuing a press release early in the afternoon including the bill in a list of 17 other measures he signed earlier the day.

"This bill improves a woman's ability to make an informed choice that will protect her physical and mental health now and in the future," the blurb noting the signing said.

Pines said Friday he plans to file a federal lawsuit with the American Civil Liberties Union arguing the law is unconstitutional. The lawsuit will include a request for a restraining order blocking the law from taking effect.

Under the bill, any woman seeking an abortion would have to get an ultrasound. The technician would have to point out the fetus' visible organs and external features to the woman. Abortion providers would have to have admitting privileges at a hospital within 30 miles to perform the procedures.

Republican supporters argue the ultrasound requirement is designed to help the woman bond with the fetus and convince her to save it. The admitting privileges mandate is meant to ensure an abortion provider can follow up with a patient at the hospital if an emergency arises, they say.

The bill is part of national GOP push to curtail abortions. North Dakota's governor, Republican Jack Dalrymple, signed a law this spring that outlaws abortions as early as six weeks into a pregnancy, making North Dakota the most restrictive state in the nation to get an abortion. The state's lone abortion clinic has filed a federal lawsuit seeking to block the law.

Republicans in Arkansas this spring passed a law that bans most abortions after 12 weeks. The American Civil Liberties Union of Arkansas and the Center for Reproductive Rights. A federal judge has temporarily blocked that law. A trial has been tentatively scheduled for next year.

Republicans in Alabama passed a law similar to the Wisconsin bill in April requiring abortion providers to have admitting privileges at a local hospital. The ACLU and Planned Parenthood filed a lawsuit contending the law would shut down three of the state's five clinics because doctors at the clinics haven't been able to get admitting privileges at nearby hospitals. A federal judge temporarily blocked the law in June.

The Wisconsin bill sparked a fierce debate in both the state Senate and Assembly as minority Democrats tried to push back. Republican leaders in the Senate abruptly halted a floor debate in that house. Senate President Mike Ellis, R-Neenah, flew into a rage as Democrats protested, pounding his gavel so hard he broke the base. Assembly Democrats, for their part, did a slow burn, complaining about the bill for hours. Republicans still rolled the bill through both houses.

"Wisconsin Republicans would be wise to spend less time intruding on Wisconsin women's very personal and private medical decisions and more time on the real issues facing our everyday families," Assembly Assistant Minority Leader Sandy Pasch said in a statement Friday.

Planned Parenthood and the ACLU's challenge in Wisconsin would closely resemble the one in Alabama, Pines said. It will argue the admitting privileges provision will force Planned Parenthood's Appleton clinic as well as Affiliated Medical Services in Milwaukee to close because physicians at both facilities lack admitting privileges to nearby hospitals. Women would still be able get abortions at Planned Parenthood facilities in Madison and Milwaukee, but Planned Parenthood argues many women would have to travel hundreds of miles to reach them.

"You cannot prohibit a doctor from performing a medical service merely because a private entity won't sanction that," Pines said. "It unconstitutionally infringes on the right of women in Wisconsin to have access to abortion services."

Wisconsin Planned Parenthood Will Sue to Stop Women from Seeing Ultrasound   

LifeNews reports:

    The Planned Parenthood abortion business in Wisconsin is so concerned about a new law that will allow women to see an ultrasound of their unborn child before an abortion that it says it will file a lawsuit to stop it.

    The state legislature approved the measure, Senate Bill 206 (Sonya’s Law), which is legislation that provides a baby with the opportunity for his mother to see him through ultrasound before his mother makes a choice about how to proceed with her pregnancy. The woman can choose the type of ultrasound after all options are explained to her. The ultrasound helps to determine the age of the baby.

So that's it? For one - WHY weren't they doing ANY of this when George W. Bush was President? Yeah, Bush Jr was the same guy who appointed 2 pro-abortion USSC justices(Roberts and Alito) - but en yet not a chirp, especially from Churchianity. And two, why don't these state governments just ban abortions ALTOGETHER, instead of just doing a couple of good things and stopping well short?

Hate to say it, but it's no different from modern-day Churchianity compromising the gospel(even a little bit leavens the whole lump).

Judge blocks one restriction on Wisconsin abortion doctors
8/2/13

(Reuters) - A federal judge on Friday blocked a portion of a Wisconsin law that requires doctors who perform abortions to have admitting privileges at a hospital near their practice.

U.S. District Judge William Conley last month temporarily stopped the measure, days after Republican Governor Scott Walker signed it into law, and his latest ruling extends that indefinitely while a lawsuit proceeds against the provision.

Planned Parenthood, which filed the suit, is challenging the requirement that doctors performing an abortion have admitting privileges at a hospital within 30 miles of their practice.

The group, which sued in partnership with another abortion provider called Affiliated Medical Services, contends the law would create such hurdles for doctors that abortion in Wisconsin would only be available in the large cities of Madison and Milwaukee.

Conley, in his 44-page ruling, expressed similar concerns.

"Even if there were some evidence that the admitting privileges requirement would actually further women's health, any benefit is greatly outweighed by the burdens caused by increased travel, decreased access and, at least for some women, the denial of an in-state option for abortion services," Conley wrote in his opinion released on Friday.

A representative for Walker could not be reached for comment late on Friday, and the anti-abortion group Wisconsin Right to Life did not return calls. Undecided

"In Wisconsin, Texas, North Carolina and elsewhere we are seeing an unprecedented wave of attacks on women's health, and people are fed up with it," Planned Parenthood Federation of America president Cecile Richards said in a statement following Conley's ruling.

Earlier this week, North Carolina Governor Pat McCrory signed into law sweeping new restrictions on abortion clinics, including an admitting privileges requirement.

Texas Governor Rick Perry last month signed into law a similar statute as part of a sweeping measure that followed 12 other states in banning abortions at later than 20 weeks of pregnancy.

In previous rulings in Mississippi and Alabama, courts have blocked admitting privilege requirements for physicians who perform abortions.

Anti-abortion activists, frustrated at their failure to roll back the landmark 1973 U.S. Supreme Court decision that found women have a constitutional right to terminate pregnancy, have in recent years turned to enacting new abortion limits in states with Republican-controlled legislatures.

No, local elections are likely not rigged(although a few maybe), but nonetheless I visited the Texas State Capitol building in Austin 2 years ago, and pretty much almost all of the state legislature politicians are lawyers, businessmen, doctors, etc who get very little pay(like only $6000 per year, less than minimum wage). Pt being that they appear to run for these offices so that they can promote themselves and their businesses in their communities.(as some of them are influential community members to begin with) I don't think they care one way or another about the interests of their respective states.

Either way - don't be fooled by what they're doing(even though it may appear to be good). Remember one of the end times deceptions going on since 1980 has been to get Christians to get politically active, instead of keeping our eyes and focus on Jesus Christ and his return.

It appears to be the case. It's a social standing thing. A massive feather in their social cap. As we know, Jesus says no titles, right? Well, the world just loves titles and exhalting themselves to be somebody, to rule over others. It's purely a pride thing, with the love of money as their motivation.

U.S. top court rejects Wisconsin abortion case
6/23/14

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday declined to intervene in the legal fight over a new Wisconsin law that requires any doctor performing an abortion to have privileges to admit patients to a nearby hospital.

The justices turned away the state’s appeal of a December 2013 ruling by the 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals that upheld a federal judge’s decision to block the law temporarily.

Opponents of the state law say it could shut down half of Wisconsin's abortion clinics. It requires a doctor to have admitting privileges at a hospital located within 30 miles (48 km) of his or her practice.

Planned Parenthood of Wisconsin and Affiliated Medical Services, the state's two abortion providers, challenged the measure in court, saying it could force abortion clinics in Appleton and Milwaukee to close.

The challengers noted in court papers that there was no need for the Supreme Court to review the lower court’s decision to impose an injunction because there will soon be a final ruling on the legal challenge.

The case is Van Hollen v. Planned Parenthood, U.S. Supreme Court, No. 13-1127.
