Wisconsin bill would allow fathers to sue late-term abortionists
In addition to those penalties, the bill would allow the father to sue the doctor for damages, “including damages for personal injury and emotional and psychological distress,” if the doctor performs or attempts to perform an abortion after the 20-week limit.

The bill also says the woman can sue.
