Accomplishments of WRTL under Heather’s Leadership: 2016 – Passage of two laws to redirect approximately $8 million in taxpayer funds away from Planned Parenthood 2015 – Passage of a complete re-write of Wisconsin’s long unconstitutional campaign finance law which placed burdens on free speech. The new law heavily relied on Wisconsin Right to Life’s past court victories to ensure there would no longer be burdens to free speech, regardless of one’s political preferences. 2015 – Passage of the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act to protect pain-capable unborn babies from abortion at 20 weeks post-fertilization and beyond.
