What a Dane County judge's decision means for abortions in Wisconsin
On Monday, Planned Parenthood resumed providing abortions in Wisconsin after more than a year-long hiatus. It’s a calculated move based on a decision by a Dane County Circuit Court judge that ruled that the 1849 abortion ban does not apply to voluntary medical abortions. We get the rundown from a state politics reporter. Then, we talk to a law and politics expert about the basis of both the decisions by the judge and Planned Parenthood.
The challenges facing a growing population of stay-at-home dads
Milwaukee is hosting the HomeDadCon this week, a national convention for stay-at-home fathers. We talk to one of the organizers and a UW-Milwaukee sociologist about why more dads are staying home and what challenges they face.
