BREAKING: Ron Johnson Has Worked for Years to Strip Reproductive Rights From Wisconsinites
MADISON, Wis. – After years of Ron Johnson undermining reproductive rights and continuously working to overturn Roe v. Wade, the Supreme Court has made Johnson’s goal a reality. Johnson’s actions have made it so that Wisconsin’s 1849 abortion ban is now enforceable, and doctors in our state can be put in jail for doing their jobs.
Wisconsinites are going to hold Ron Johnson accountable for his abysmal anti-choice record:
- Johnson praised the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, saying that the ability to legislate a woman’s right to an abortion now lies with the states, which in Wisconsin means nearly all abortions are now illegal.
- When discussing the impact repealing Roe v. Wade would have, Johnson stated: “I don’t view that [as] such a huge threat to women’s health. I think – I think things would be just fine.”
- Johnson said if individuals don’t like the abortion laws in their state, they simply “can move.”
- Johnson has advocated for a federal ban on abortion after 20 weeks and signed on to an amicus brief urging the Supreme Court to uphold Mississippi’s law banning abortion after 15 weeks of pregnancy, jeopardizing the reproductive rights of millions across the country.
