Wisconsin Republicans Must Stop Playing Political Games with Women’s Health
So-Called “Pro-Life” Caucus Refuses to Care About Health & Lives of Wisconsinites
MADISON – As residents of our state continue to struggle under the weight of the still raging COVID pandemic, the State’s legislative majority insists on putting politics before people. Instead of prioritizing legislation that would immediately improve the health, lives and economic security of Wisconsin families, leaders in the State Capitol choose to spend their days pushing an extreme political agenda completely out of touch with voters.
“It’s infuriating to watch the legislative majority in our state rush through dangerous policies under a so-called “Time for Life” agenda,” notes Wisconsin Alliance for Women’s Health Executive Director Sara Finger. “It’s time that we call out the hypocrisy and recognize how little the GOP actually cares about the health and lives of Wisconsin women and their families.”
While a growing list of positive, evidence-based bills are blatantly ignored, the Republican majority in the State Senate and State Assembly are making clear choices indicating where their priorities lie. The following is a list of powerful policies available now for our legislature to take up and pass if they authentically cared about the lives of Wisconsin women and babies:
