All three Planned Parenthood facilities in Wisconsin have temporarily stopped scheduling abortions, in anticipation of the upcoming Supreme Court decision on Dobbs vs. Jackson Women’s Health Organization. That ruling could determine whether or not Roe v. Wade is overturned, and that decision is expected to be released this month.
According to the Associated Press, Planned Parenthood is not scheduling any abortions past June 25. The nation’s largest abortion chain expects Roe to be overturned, and therefore, believes there is no point in continuing to schedule abortion appointments.
“One of the hardest aspects of this is not knowing what day this decision will come down and what it will be,” Michelle Velasquez, the director of legal advocacy and services at Planned Parenthood Wisconsin, said. “The unknown has been difficult.”
