MONROE - Two local hospitals were among nearly two dozen Wisconsin hospitals fined for various violations of a state law requiring hospitals to provide information about emergency contraception to rape victims. According to the Department of Health Services report, the Memorial Hospital of Lafayette County and Monroe Clinic were found to be out of compliance with the state law in April of 2015 and February of 2016, respectively. A 2007 state law requires hospitals to provide information to a rape victim regarding the option to receive emergency contraceptives and to provide those contraceptives on the victim's request.
