Despite GOP complaints that he has a conflict of interest, Pro-abortion Wisconsin Attorney General Josh Kaul will be defending Wisconsin's pro-life laws in a suit by Planned Parenthood. Josh Kaul was endorsed by Planned Parenthood when he ran for office, but Judge Willian Conley said the GOP couldn't intervene in the case because they did not prove it would interfere with Kaul's duties.

Kristen Nupson, legislative director of Wisconsin Right to Life, commented on this development:
“We are frustrated to hear this ruling. We think that it would be in the best interest of the state to have someone else defend these laws. Attorney General Kaul’s history with Planned Parenthood is extremely concerning. He clearly has a conflict of interest. 
“We have worked hard to pass legislation that protects the right to life. This lawsuit puts those laws – and the lives of the unborn in our state- at great risk. The Legislature was proactive in seeking outside intervention in this case and we are disappointed the court will not allow them to do so.”
