A new bill in the Wisconsin Legislature proposes barring a partnership that allows University of Wisconsin employees to work at Planned Parenthood, the Associated Press reports.
The measure targets the university’s decade-old arrangement with Planned Parenthood, through which faculty members work part time at a clinic in Madison, Wis. The bill would also prevent university employees from performing abortions or training students at facilities where abortions are performed, besides hospitals.
The AP reports that fewer than 10 faculty members work with the organization to provide services that include family planning, abortions, and disease screenings.
Robert N. Golden, dean of the university’s medical school, said the bill, in enacted, would “destroy” the school’s residency training program in obstetrics and gynecology.
