WISCONSIN— The uncertainty tied to the United State Supreme Court's decision overturning Roe v. Wade and the legality of any abortions in Wisconsin going forward, continue to provide no shortage of legal, ethical and professional questions for health care workers.

"For my provider colleagues, this is a really challenging time for them because they're unable to provide the care to their patients that they want to provide and that they're trained to provide," said Dr. Jenny Higgins, a UW-Madison professor in the department of obstetrics and gynecology and director of the Collaborative for Reproductive Equity through the UW School of Medicine and Public Health.

Higgins said that health care providers are in a holding pattern now, as they wait for some sort of clarity about what will be allowed under current law, specifically whether or not Wisconsin's law from 1849 banning abortion is actually in effect and what qualifies as an exception to provide an abortion to help save the life of an expectant mother.

"Until we have more clarity around the enforceable laws around abortion in our state right this minute," Dr. Higgins added, "services will continue to remain unavailable at our state's abortion and health care centers. We're really keen to insure that the courts clarify really quickly which laws are enforceable and how they will be enforced..."
