University of Wisconsin confirms cancellation of late-term abortion plans

In a press statement issued the evening of Dec. 13, the University of Wisconsin confirmed the Madison Surgery Center will not be involved in late-term abortions. Further, UW admitted they are not pursuing those plans at any location at this time.

"UW's statement validates what we have suspected for a year," said Peggy Hamill, state director of Pro-Life Wisconsin. "As 2010 draws to a close, we thank God for concluding this horrifying chapter in the ongoing struggle with UW's commitment to abortion."

The Madison Surgery Center board voted to allow late-term abortions at a February 2009 meeting. The Madison Surgery Center is a joint partnership between Meriter Hospital, the University of Wisconsin Hospital and Clinics and the University of Wisconsin Medical Foundation.

"We applaud the pro-life medical staff of the Madison Surgery Center who spoke in public opposition to this plan," Hamill continued. "Wisconsin already has one late-term abortion facility in Milwaukee, killing viable babies. Wisconsinites oppose dragging our publicly-funded state university even further into the abortion business."

Since the late-term abortion plan was announced in January 2009, Pro-Life Wisconsin has held countless prayer vigils, attended by thousands; aired hundreds of pro-life television commercials in the Madison area; tens of thousands of people signed a pro-life petition; and hundreds boycotted the Madison Surgery Center. As long as UW continues to advocate abortion, Pro-Life Wisconsin's website NoUWabortions.com will remain a virtual hub of resistance.

"Pro-life grassroots activism works," Hamill concluded.

Madison Surgery Center late-term abortion plan abandoned due to pro-life pressure

Pro-Life Wisconsin, through the Alliance Defense Fund, received official confirmation from the Wisconsin Attorney General's office that the Madison Surgery Center (MSC) has abandoned its plans to perform late-term abortions.

"We give credit first and foremost to God for this pro-life victory," said Peggy Hamill, state director of Pro-Life Wisconsin. "Pro-life grassroots activism works. We have held countless prayer vigils, attended by thousands; aired hundreds of pro-life television commercials in the Madison area; tens of thousands of people signed our pro-life petition; and hundreds boycotted the Madison Surgery Center. We have maintained a daily prayer presence outside the MSC, and our NoUWabortions.com website has served as a virtual hub of resistance."
