Is UW-Madison Breaking State Laws?

Looks clear to me!

Statute 20.927 of Wisconsin law states, “No funds of this state or of any county, city, village, town or long term care district or of any subdivision or agency of this state or of any county, city, village or town and no federal funds passing through the state treasury shall be authorized for or paid to a physician or surgeon or a hospital, clinic or other medical facility for the performance of an abortion.”

Looks like the UW-Madistan is gaming that a bit.

An open records request by Pro-Life Wisconsin and the Alliance Defense Fund reveals the University of Wisconsin Hospital and Clinics (UWHC) has been funding medical students’ rotations at Planned Parenthood, training medical students in abortion procedures.

I'm sure there will be a long Jesuitical argument which tells us that 'education' does not precisely fall under the prohibition of 20.927.

"Out, out, damned spot..."
