Scott's temporary residence outside Missouri did not bring about his emancipation under the Missouri Compromise, which the court ruled unconstitutional as it would improperly deprive Scott's owner of his legal property.While Chief Justice Roger B. Taney had hoped to settle issues related to slavery and Congressional authority by this decision, it aroused public outrage and deepened sectional tensions between the northern and southern U.S. states. President Abraham Lincoln's Emancipation Proclamation in 1863, and the post-Civil War Thirteenth, Fourteenth andFifteenth amendments nullified the decision.

Madison — In a raucous clash on the state Senate floor Wednesday that recalled the bitter divides of 2011, Republicans abruptly cut off debate and forced a vote requiring that women seeking abortions get ultrasounds.The morning's brief floor session included sharp exchanges and one senator contending that abortions "became the thing to do" in the 1960s.Democrats protested the bill's merits and the process by which it was passed, saying Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald of Juneau and his fellow Republicans were trampling on democracy by ending debate after about 25 minutes."My first advice to the majority leader is that he seeks psychological help," Sen. Bob Jauch (D-Poplar) said at a news conference after the vote.Fitzgerald laughed off that comment and compared Democrats' reaction on Wednesday to their decision in 2011 to leave the state for three weeks in a failed attempt to stop legislation that ended most collective bargaining for most public workers.He described the Democrats' approach as, "We don't like what's happening from a public policy perspective, so we're not going to play by the rules."The abortion measure passed 17-15, with all Republicans for it and all Democrats against it. Sen. Luther Olsen (R-Ripon) was absent.It now goes to the Assembly, which plans to take it up Thursday. GOP Gov. Scott Walker has said he would sign the bill. ...
A bill that would require a pregnant woman seeking an abortion to have an ultrasound barreled toward approval Monday with a favorable committee vote and the scheduling of debate in the full Senate on Tuesday.
The fast-tracked bill, introduced last week and approved on a partisan 3-2 vote Monday in committee, also would require that an abortion provider have the authority to admit patients into a hospital within 30 miles of where the abortions are performed.
