SB 623 would have repealed the ultrasound and admitting privileges requirements in 2013 Wisconsin Act 37 (SB 206).

This bill would have eliminated all of the ultrasound requirements and the requirement that the pregnant woman be told she is required to have an ultrasound performed before obtaining an abortion. It also would have eliminated the requirement that a physician have admitting privileges in a hospital within 30 miles of the location where the abortion is to be performed.
