Wisconsin Abortion Law

— NPR's Kathy Lohr reports that doctors in Wisconsin have resumed performing abortions this week, despite that state legislation was passed recently aimed at ending so-called partial birth abortions. Originally, doctors stopped performing abortions altogether, citing that the new legislation did not clearly define which abortions are allowed and which are not. The Wisconsin law will be appealed, but until then abortion-rights supporters and opponents will be closely monitoring the events in this Midwestern region.
