MADISON, Wis. (AP) - Republican lawmakers are circulating several bills that would make it harder and more expensive to get an abortion in Wisconsin.
The measures would prohibit the use of public money to pay for abortion coverage in public employees' health insurance plans, relieve certain religious organizations and employers from having to provide coverage for contraceptive pills, ban abortion for gender selection and require doctors to properly dispose of fetal remains.
Lawmakers are seeking sponsors for the three bills. They come as the state Legislature is already considering legislation banning the sale of fetal tissue or its use in medical research and allowing parents to sue if their unborn child died as a result of someone's wrongdoing.
Abortion-rights groups say decisions about abortion and contraception should be left up to women.
