Wisconsin governor vetoed legislation regulating abortions

On January 6, 2006, Wisconsin Governor Jim Doyle vetoed legislation that would have required doctors to inform women seeking abortions after the fifth month of pregnancy that their fetuses may feel pain. The bill passed the state Assembly 61-34 and the Senate 21-12. In a veto statement Doyle argued that the legislation would "intrude[] on the doctor patient relationship in a heavy handed manner and means doctors don't have to provide objective and accurate information to their patients."
