“As disappointed as I am in seeing an increase in abortion numbers in Wisconsin, it really didn’t come as a surprise,” shared Heather Weininger, Executive Director of Wisconsin Right to Life.
“After a brand-new, state-of-the-art abortion clinic opened in Milwaukee’s trendy Third Ward we should have all been on high alert that abortions were soon to be on the upward climb.
“For too many years, Planned Parenthood was seeing a decline in their revenue and they were ready at every turn to reverse the downturn in profits. For years we have heard Planned Parenthood saying the pro-life movement is limiting access to abortion. It looks like the abortion industry has gotten what it wanted: More unborn babies being murdered, and more women who will suffer the devastating consequences of abortion.
“Wisconsin Right to Life will keep working to ensure women aren’t coerced into abortions. We will make sure women know that there are life-affirming alternatives to abortion. We will work with pregnancy resource centers across the state to ensure women in crisis have help available to them, and we will continue to work on passing protective, pro-life legislation that ensures women know the truth about abortion and have real choices for themselves as well as their children.
“The news likely won’t be any better when the 2018 abortion numbers come in. Planned Parenthood is now open in Sheboygan, where their main focus is RU-486 abortions. While your taxpayer dollars might not be paying directly for these abortions, they are being used to promote Planned Parenthood to women and promote the falsehood that abortion is their only alternative.”
For 50 years, Wisconsin Right to Life has been the pro-life leader in our state. We continue to promote the truth about life and the many alternatives to abortion available in Wisconsin.
