The statistical report available from the link below presents summary tables of information collected through the Wisconsin Induced Abortion Reporting System, established under Wis. Stat. § 69.186. Since Jan.1, 1987, medical facilities in Wisconsin have been required to report selected information on patients who obtained induced abortions.
Wisconsin Medicaid and BadgerCare Plus cover abortions in the following situations:
- If an abortion is medically necessary to save the life of the woman.
- If continuing the pregnancy will cause grave and long-lasting damage to the physical health of the woman.
- If the pregnancy was the result of a sexual assault or incest. The crime must also be reported to the law enforcement authorities.
A doctor must sign a written statement attesting to one of the above situations.
