Lassa Lashes Out At Republicans
Senate Democrats used a procedural move Tuesday to delay a final vote on passing a bill that would require physicians to provide or arrange an ultrasound for women seeking abortions. The bill will return to the Republican controlled Senate the next time it is in session, likely next week. Senator Julie Lassa called out a colleague for not being able to use the word, vagina or to even describe what the process would entail.

Doctors would have to show the ultrasound image to the woman and provide a thorough description of the fetus' features. The Assembly is scheduled to take up the bill on Thursday. Governor Scott Walker has already said he would sign the bill if and when it gets to his desk.
