GREEN BAY, WI --Abortions are no longer being performed in Green Bay.

As of Thursday, Bellin Health System takes over the only medical facility that performed abortions in the Green Bay area, OBGYN Associates.

Bellin has chosen to discontinue performing the medical procedures.

The closest facility to Green Bay still performing abortions is the Planned Parenthood clinic in Appleton.

If the new abortion law in Wisconsin goes through, only two abortion clinics would remain in operation in Wisconsin. One in Madison, the other in Milwaukee.

A federal judge extended his hold Wednesday on the new abortion law, which requires doctors who perform abortions to have hospital admitting privileges.
