MADISON - Wisconsin Democrats are working to repeal the state's new abortion law.
The law requires women to get an ultrasound before an abortion. It also requires providers to have hospital admitting privileges.
Planned Parenthood quickly filed a lawsuit against the admitting portion of the law, which is temporarily blocked. The ultrasound requirement, however, is still in effect.
Democrats say they hope to change that.
"We believe that this law as a whole must be repealed and that's what we are committed to doing and that's why we will be circulating the bill to repeal this entire law," said State Rep. Chris Taylor, D-Madison.
Republican Governor Scott Walker signed the bill into law on July 5. He says he's confident the law is here to stay.
"The law is already the law. It's in effect, it's in the courts right now but just like laws have over the last two and a half years we've consistently had laws in and out of the courts and consistently they've been upheld so my guess is, long term, it'll be like the other measures we've seen," said Walker.
The Planned Parenthood clinic in Grand Chute is in danger of shutting down unless the law is repealed or the lawsuit overturns the admitting requirement.
