Two separate bills were furthermore passed on Thursday that deal with the State Assembly’s current topic of Abortion.

A sex-selective bill was formed from Republican Rep. Steve Kestell, that states an abortion can not be carried out due to preference of the fetus’ sex.

According to the AP, the measure also enables the fetus’ mother, father or grandparent to sue the abortion provider for emotional and psychological harm, an injunction will prohibit the provider from performing other sex-selective abortions. The Assembly passed this measure 58-39

The Assembly also passed a bill that would pertain to a ban on insurances used towards abortion services.

The proposals were formed from representative Andre Jacque, the same vote was found on this bill 58-39

Democrats have complained that republicans are focusing too much on women’s reproductive choices instead of working to improve Wisconsin’s economy.
