“With a pro-abortion governor and attorney general in office, it certainly didn’t take long for Planned Parenthood to look at another avenue for increasing their revenues from abortions,” stated Heather Weininger, Wisconsin Right to Life Executive Director.
“Our concern for women and their safety has lead to sound legislation which a majority of the population supports. Now, Planned Parenthood is out to challenge protective, pro-life laws — laws that, in some cases, have been in place over 30 years. By challenging these common-sense laws that require doctors to perform abortions and limit access to deadly abortion drugs, Planned Parenthood is showing they have zero regard for women’s safety and want nothing more than to increase their profits by expanding abortion in our state.
“We also have great concerns over the defense of our long-standing laws with our current attorney general. Josh Kaul is pals with Planned Parenthood and received their support during his recent campaign. Will he really work to defend laws on the books that hurt the business of his friends at Planned Parenthood?
“Wisconsin Right to Life asks the leaders in the State Senate and Assembly to consider other options for the defense of our pro-life laws.”
Wisconsin Right to Life is Wisconsin’s oldest and largest pro-life organization, founded in September, 1968, to protect the most vulnerable among us.
