MADISON (AP) - Planned Parenthood of Wisconsin says it plans to file a state lawsuit over a Wisconsin law that subjects doctors who perform medication-induced abortions to possible criminal charges.
A Wisconsin State Journal report says the group initially sued in federal court, but it's refilling the case in state court because of jurisdiction issues.
The law requires doctors and patients to take a series of steps before a woman can receive a medication abortion, including verification that she is having the procedure voluntarily.
Planned Parenthood's federal lawsuit claimed that the state law is unconstitutionally vague.
This week Planned Parenthood and the Wisconsin Department of Justice agreed on interpretation of language in the law. But a federal judge said the agreement eliminated the constitutional issue that initially gave her court jurisdiction.
