ICYMI: Sen. Baldwin, Lt. Gov. Rodriguez Call Out Republican Attacks On Reproductive Freedom at Community Roundtables
MADISON, Wis. — Yesterday, Senator Tammy Baldwin and Lieutenant Governor Sara Rodriguez were joined by Democratic leaders, medical providers, and local advocates for WisDems Community Conversations: Roe v. Wade at 51.
Speakers discussed how reproductive freedom will be front and center for voters this November and highlighted the contrast between Donald Trump, who is campaigning on a promise to ban abortion nationwide, and the Biden-Harris Administration, Senator Baldwin, and Wisconsin Democrats, who are fighting to restore the freedoms millions of Americans lost when Roe was overturned.
27 NEWS MADISON: “Ahead of Vice President Kamala Harris’ visit to Wisconsin to discuss abortion rights, local Democratic leaders dedicated their weekend to kickstarting the conversation with U.S. Senator Tammy Baldwin. ‘When healthcare is criminalized, it changes your entire experience of being a person,’ said Democratic Wisconsin State Senator Kelda Roys, who represents District 26 and led a roundtable discussion on Sunday. The focal point of the conversation centered on reproductive freedom for both patients and healthcare providers. It coincided with the eve of the 51st anniversary of the Roe vs. Wade decision. ‘This discussion was really a reminder about the dire reality that we face in a post-Roe America. I think this was a hopeful conversation about how we could work together to restore these rights and freedoms that have been lost in America,’ Sen. Tammy Baldwin said.”
