Last day abortions will be performed in Green Bay

CREATED Jul. 31, 2013

GREEN BAY, WI --Wednesday is the last day abortions will be performed in Green Bay. OBGYN Associates, the only medical facility performing abortions in the Green Bay area has been sold to Bellin Health System.

Bellin has chosen to discontinue performing the medical procedures when it takes over the clinic  Thursday.

This comes after a newly approved law requiring doctors who perform abortions to have admitting privileges to nearby hospitals.

By Thursday only two abortion clinics will remain in operation in Wisconsin. One is in Madison. The other is in Milwaukee and would operate on a reduced schedule.
