Wisconsin Democrats on New Republican Abortion Ban

MADISON, Wis. — In response to the last-minute introduction of a new ban on abortion in Wisconsin introduced today by Republicans in the Wisconsin Legislature, Democratic Party of Wisconsin Chair Ben Wikler released the following statement:

“Days before the 51st anniversary of Roe v. Wade, MAGA Republicans are pushing a new ban on abortion with no exceptions for rape or incest here in Wisconsin. Let’s be clear: Republicans at every level of government are attacking women’s freedom to make their own health care choices. These threats in Wisconsin wouldn’t be possible without Donald Trump. Trump has already endorsed a new federal ban on abortion, and has promised to be ‘leading the charge’ in getting one passed. Now, Republican politicians are helping put that plan into action, starting right here in Wisconsin. As we prepare to welcome Vice President Harris to Wisconsin on Monday to kick off her reproductive freedom tour, Democrats in every county in Wisconsin will mobilize to ensure that politicians aren’t overriding Wisconsinites’ power to make their own medical decisions.”
