The Republican-backed legislation,House Bill 1171, has passed out of committee on a nine-to-three party-line vote, and is expected to face a floor vote in the state's GOP-dominated House of Representatives soon.
http://www.nbc15.com/home/headlines/...n_Doctors.htmlA man plotting to murder abortion providers in Madison is stopped by police only after he makes a mistake. Tonight he's behind bars and the clinic continues to see patients. When police responded to a report of an accidental shot fired into a room at a Motel 6 on Madison's east side they had no idea they were about to uncover a murder plot. Planned Parenthood of Wisconsin President and CEO Teri Huyck says, "Well of course it's disturbing. It's greatly disturbing."
The target of the plot were staff performing abortions at a Planned Parenthood clinic a few blocks away from the motel. Police say 63-year-old Ralph Lang drove down from his home in Marshfield Wednesday afternoon and was in the motel room holding a gun when he accidentally fired a bullet into a room across the hall. According to a criminal complaint Lang told officers he had the gun to "lay out abortionists because they are killing babies." Huyck says, "We're very concerned about the safety and well being of our staff and patients and that is always on the forefront of our thinking."
Lang told officers he was going to find out who the doctor was doing abortions and shoot him in the head. He said he bought the gun to "help end abortion." When asked if his plan was to just shoot the doctor or if it also included nurses Lang said he wished he could "line them all up in a row, get a machine gun, and mow them all down."
