Republican candidate Eric Toney draws the line when it comes to abortion

MADISON, Wis. – On Monday, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported that Attorney General candidate Eric Toney wouldn’t rule out prosecuting abortion cases under the state’s pre-Roe abortion ban, even in cases of rape or incest.

With Toney’s endorsements and repeated promises to enforce Wisconsin’s 1849 abortion ban, it is clear that he is too extreme for Wisconsin.

Here’s what Wisconsinites should know about Eric Toney and his extreme stance on abortion:

“Eric Toney’s endorsements from extreme anti-abortion lobbyists and his repeated promises on the campaign trail to pursue criminal charges against doctors and nurses prove to Wisconsinites that he can’t be trusted to protect their health and reproductive freedom,” said Democratic Party of Wisconsin Rapid Response Director Marnie O’Malley. “Despite a broad majority of Wisconsinites agreeing that women should make their own decisions when it comes to reproductive health care, Eric Toney is eager to enforce a criminal abortion ban first passed decades before women could vote. It is crucial that we re-elect AG Josh Kaul this November and ensure women and patients across Wisconsin are able to seek out the reproductive health care they need and make their own decisions about their medical care.”
