Expert Testimony at Trial for Wisconsin's "Admitting Privileges" Law

Admitting privileges hold abortion doctors accountable, physician says.   (Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, 5/28/2014)

The witness's procedure took place in 1995.  On cross-examination, she testified she obtained her medical records in 2002 so she could better understand what happened to her. She said she had read them numerous times but did not know what some terms in the records meant.

She said she believed the abortion caused her illness but acknowledged she had no facts to support that contention.
