While the majority of the U.S. population thinks abortion should be legal in some circumstances and two-thirds of Americans said they do not want the landmark decision overturned, there are legislatures across the country who are severely restricting access to abortions. In Wisconsin, a Wisconsin law written in 1849 could criminalize nearly all abortions in the state, making it a Class H felony for anyone other than the mother to “intentionally (destroy) the life of an unborn child.”
