A Republican district attorney asked the Wisconsin Supreme Court to decide whether an 1849 state law bans abortion without waiting for an appellate court ruling.

The U.S. Supreme Court’s overturning of Roe v. Wade reactivated the old law, but a Dane County judge ruled it conflicts with a 1985 law and doesn’t ban abortion.

The DA appealed and wants the state high court to take the case directly, arguing its ruling would have statewide impact to guide policy.

Both the DA and Democratic Attorney General agree the Supreme Court should take the appeal without lower court review to avoid delays.

Planned Parenthood also agreed, as the organization has resumed offering abortions.

However, the DA faces an uphill battle since liberal justices control the court, including one who expressed support for abortion rights on the campaign trail.
