CWPB partners Lester Pines and Susan Crawford, along with attorneys from Planned Parenthood of America and the ACLU Reproductive Rights Project, obtained a permanent injunction against a 2011 Wisconsin law that required physicians who provide abortion services to have admitting privileges at a hospital within 30 miles of where those services are performed. U.S. District Court Judge William Conley held that the law imposed unconstitutional burdens on the right of Wisconsin women to access abortion services, that the imposition of those burdens, rather than any attempt to promote women’s health, was the Legislature’s unconstitutional intent when it passed the law and that the law impermissibly and unconstitutionally delegated to private institutions with no right of appeal to the state the decision of whether to award admitting privileges.
