The debate in Wisconsin centers around a proposed bill to ban abortions after 14 weeks.

Critics argue that the bill lacks exceptions for cases of rape or incest, while supporters claim it aims to find a middle ground.

Republican State Rep. Amanda Nedweski said, “In the cases of rape or incest, this gives you 14 weeks to figure out what to do.”

Medical students expressed concerns about the impact on their training and future practice, with one student stating she would leave the state if unable to perform abortions.

Medical College of Wisconsin student Maya Seshan said, “When you put physicians in a gray area every day, their ability to quickly save the lives of the person they’re working on makes their lives harder.”

Madalynn Welch said, “I think abortion should be unrestrictive. And I think when somebody finds out in pregnancy when – how far along that they are – when someone finds out, they should be able to get an abortion if they want to. And for some people, that is full term,” she said.

“A lot of my colleagues who are on the same track agree,” she continued.

The Medical College of Wisconsin emphasizes the importance of reproductive care and opposes the ban on abortions.

The Medical College of Wisconsin’s website states, “Restricting access to reproductive care disproportionately affects our most vulnerable patients, erodes the trust and sanctity of the patient-physician relationship, and criminalizes physicians – all of which negatively impact the health of our community.”

“Our Department stands with the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology and other leading Medical and Healthcare organizations who oppose a ban on abortions. We add our voice to those advocating for access to comprehensive reproductive healthcare for all our patients,” the website continues.

The bill’s fate may hinge on potential veto by the state’s Democratic governor.
