UW Board approves late-term abortions at clinic
After hearing three hours of emotional comments on both sides, a University of Wisconsin Hospital board agreed to allow late-term abortions at a Madison outpatient clinic.
The vote was 11-3 Wednesday to provide abortions for women who are 19-22 weeks pregnant.
The University of Wisconsin and Meriter Hospital had proposed the idea after a Madison doctor who had performed such abortions retired in December.
No one else in the city does those procedures.
