In May of 2019, eight states, including Alabama, Georgia, Kentucky, Mississippi, Ohio, Missouri, Arkansas and Utah have passed laws banning abortions that occur in the first or second trimester. The rash of legislation is an apparently coordinated attack on abortion rights seeking to force a repeal of the landmark Roe v. Wade decision by the U.S. Supreme Court. Anti-abortion advocates feel that the current makeup of the U.S. Supreme Court makes a repeal of abortion rights in the U.S. likely. Here in Wisconsin, the Republican-controlled Assembly recently jumped on the bandwagon, passing the so-called “born alive” bill that would mandate medical treatment for a fetus in the unlikely event that it maintains a heartbeat after an abortion attempt. Lisa Subeck, a Democrat representing the 78th Wisconsin Assembly District, was one of the minority votes against this bill. She joined Monday Buzz host Brian Standing on May 20, 2019.
