Wisconsin Senate passes ‘born alive’ bill on voice vote

Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00

MADISON (WKOW) — The Republican-controlled Wisconsin state Senate today passed the so-called “born alive” bill on a voice vote.

The bill is one of four anti-abortion bills that Democratic Gov. Tony Evers is expected to veto.

The born alive bill touted by President Donald Trump would require doctors to care for babies that survive an abortion or face felony charges and up to life in prison.

The Assembly passed the bill and three others last month.

None will become law once Evers follows through on his veto promise.
