Schimel to lead 20-state coalition supporting abortion restrictions
MADISON, Wis. — State Attorney General Brad Schimel announced that he is leading a 20-state coalition supporting state laws that ban abortion based on disability, gender or race Wednesday.
On March 24, 2016, Indiana enacted a law prohibiting abortions based on disability, gender, or race, and to regulate the respectful disposition of human remains. A federal judge struck down Indiana’s law, and Indiana appealed the case to the United States Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit. On Wednesday, Wisconsin filed a brief in support of Indiana, according to a release from Schimel’s office.
“Discrimination based on disability, gender, and race should never be tolerated, especially when practiced against our most vulnerable citizens: the unborn,” Schimel said in the release.
