COURT DENIES APPEAL ON WISCONSIN ABORTION WAITING PERIOD

          CHICAGO (CWNews.com) - A federal appeals court decided on Friday not to grant a delay for a Wisconsin law requiring a 24-hour waiting period for abortions, allowing the law to take effect on Sunday.

          The 7th US Circuit Court of Appeals denied the motion by Planned Parenthood of Wisconsin and pro-abortion groups to delay the law, which was passed two years ago, while the groups pursue a legal challenges. The law requires a minimum 24-hour waiting period after a mother speaks with an abortionist, and requires that she receive state-supplied information that describes fetal development and alternatives to abortion.

          Susan Armacost of Wisconsin Right to Life praised the court's decision. "It was for the protection of women so they do not go into a serious, irreversible decision in their life without knowing exactly what they were choosing," she said.
