State-mandated transvaginal ultrasounds
On Friday, July 5, Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker signed into law 17 bills that include one, simply called 2013 Wisconsin Act 37, that places new restrictions and conditions on the medical procedure to terminate a pregnancy. In addition to requiring that a large amount of geographically-customized information on pregnancy and adoption services be provided to the patient, the new law requires physicians conducting the procedure to have admitting privileges at a hospital within 30 miles of their clinic and that an obstetric ultrasound procedure be performed with an oral description provided to the patient of what is seen via the imaging and an opportunity to view the image.
