"Peggy Hamill, state director of Pro-Life Wisconsin, says her group is not surprised by the announcement from the surgery center. "Pro-Life Wisconsin suspected for over a year that they were unable to get their ducks in a row," she said, noting that the surgery center was unable to get "full staff support for the practice of late term abortion" at the facility. Pro-Life Wisconsin and Wisconsin Right to Life campaigned hard against the provision of abortion services at the surgery center."

UW and PP slink away together....no late term abortions at UW for now
bold announcement in 2/09....it was not meant to be. Good work Wisconsin, my home state. The pro life community was quick to respond first with their presence in opposition that would not go away and then with a legal challenge stating violation of state law by funding abortion training at PP. Then the dr. slated to be the abortionist left to work in MA. This was followed by stubborn insistence that these stumbling blocks would not derail them. But today, nearly a year later came the weak announcement that plans although they are committed to offer this "important" procedure, they are scrapping plans to do so at UW for now. I think the last election cycle surely had more than a little to do with it. They know have a new neighbor, Gov Scott Walker who ran on a strong pro life platform. The state legislature switched over to the Republicans in the 2010 midterms so I would say that PP and the pro aborts thought it was time to pack their bags and rethink their battle plan. I am sure pro lifers in WI know to keep their eye on PP as they will bide their time and rethink their battle plans. Congrats to Pro Life Wis for their commitment and perseverance.
