AB206,1,3 1An Act to create 20.927 (1r) of the statutes; relating to: prohibiting
2performance of and funding or providing property for abortions and other
3services by certain employees and entities.
Analysis by the Legislative Reference Bureau
This bill prohibits an employee of the University of Wisconsin System or the
University of Wisconsin Hospitals and Clinics Authority from, while in the scope of
his or her employment, performing or assisting in the performance of an abortion;
performing services at a private entity, other than a hospital, where abortions are
performed; or training or receiving training in performing abortions, unless the
training occurs at a hospital. The bill also prohibits the UW System and the UW
Hospitals and Clinics Authority from assisting, assigning, extending liability
protections for, and entering a contract, agreement, or memorandum of
understanding that makes arrangements for employees to perform or assist in
performing an abortion; perform services at a private entity, other than a hospital,
where abortions are performed; or train or receive training in performing abortions,
unless the training occurs at a hospital.
Under current law, no funds of the state or of certain local governmental units,
including funds of the UW Hospitals and Clinics Authority, and no federal funds
passing through the state treasury may be authorized for or paid to a physician or
hospital, clinic, or other medical facility for the performance of an abortion. The
funding prohibition does not apply if the abortion is directly and medically necessary
to save the life of the mother, is directly and medically necessary to prevent grave,

long-lasting physical health damage to the mother, or in circumstances of sexual
assault or incest, if certain certification requirements are fulfilled. Under the bill,
these exceptions to the funding prohibition also apply to the bill's prohibitions on
employees of and on use of funds or property by the UW System and the UW
Hospitals and Clinics Authority.
For further information see the state fiscal estimate, which will be printed as
an appendix to this bill.
