Scott Walker Signs Bill Banning Abortions After 20 Weeks in Wisconsin

Governor Scott Walker of Wisconsin, a prominent candidate in the Republican presidential campaign, signed a bill on Monday that outlaws non-emergency abortions at or beyond 20 weeks of pregnancy in his state.
Under the new law, doctors who perform an abortion at or after 20 weeks in non-emergency situations could be charged with a felony punishable by up to $10,000 in fines and three and a half years in prison. The law’s supporters say fetuses can feel pain after 20 weeks..
