A Dane County, Wis., judge ruled that a 2012 state law requires doctors to be present when they dispense abortion pills to women, but not when the women take the pills. Planned Parenthood of Wisconsin brought suit because the abortion provider feared the law could be interpreted to mean doctors have to be with their patients when they ingest all doses of abortion pills. Doctors who violate the law could face felony charges.
