Wisconsin pro-life groups seek enforcement of laws
Pro-life advocates at the Wisconsin State Capitol on Tuesday called for two district attorneys to prosecute abortionists who are dismembering unborn babies. Dane County’s Ismael Ozanne and Milwaukee County’s John Chisholm have said they won’t prosecute abortions in their jurisdictions.

Pro-life advocates say Schlipper’s ruling isn’t final and abortionists still violate the law.
