Comments
Pro-Life Wisconsin believes all abortion, defined as the intentional killing of a preborn child, is discriminatory. The bill's exception for a life-limiting fetal anomaly in its definition of congenital disability makes it internally inconsistent.

Comments
Abortion is wrong no matter the reason. That said, we do understand the bill's intent. However we object to the exception for a so-called "fatal anomaly." Many babies have proven doctors wrong who have declared they have such a disability.
