State lawmakers circulate bills making it harder to get abortions

MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - Republican lawmakers are backing several bills which would make it harder and more expensive to get an abortion in Wisconsin.

Sponsors are being sought for three measures.

Abortion-rights groups in the state say the legislation being pushed right now is just a start.

Some of the bills would prohibit the use of taxpayer money to pay for abortions in the health plans for public employees, make it so religious organizations and some employers wouldn’t have to provide coverage for contraceptive pills, ban abortion based on gender and require doctors to properly dispose of fetal remains.
