This Republican Wants to Prevent Med Students From Even Learning How to Perform Abortions


This Republican Wants to Prevent Med Students From Even Learning How to Perform Abortions
POPSUGAR

A Republican lawmaker in Wisconsin is pushing legislation to prohibit medical students at the University of Wisconsin-Madison from learning how to provide abortions. If he is successful, the OB-GYN shortage in the state could worsen, and the state’s medical school could lose national accreditation for its OB-GYN program.The bill forbids UW-Madison employees from performing abortions, training others in the procedure, or receiving training in abortion procedures anywhere other than in a hospital. The proposed legislation is specifically targeting an arrangement between UW Madison and Planned Parenthood of Wisconsin. Since federal law prohibits abortions from being performed in hospitals of public universitiesâthe Hyde Amendment dictates federal funding cannot be used to facilitate abortionsâUW Madison residents actually receive their training through an agreement with the local Planned Parenthood affiliate, where University of Wisconsin Hospitals and Clinics Authority physicians are paid by Planned Parenthood to perform the procedure.
