From WCCO: Wisconsin’s Planned Parenthood says that they are “temporarily suspending” abortion services and looking at legal options following the U.S. Supreme Court ruling overturning Roe v. Wade. The president and CEO of Wisconsin’s Planned Parenthood, Tanya Atkinson, says they will still help patients navigate to states where abortion remains legal.
