Wisconsin Right to Life Condemns Planned Parenthood’s Call for Wisconsin Supreme Court to Find a “Right to Abortion” in the State Constitution

Mar 6, 2024

Today, Planned Parenthood of Wisconsin announced they are filing a petition with the Wisconsin Supreme Court asking it to recognize a right to bodily autonomy, including a right to abortion.

In response, Heather Weininger, Executive Director of Wisconsin Right to Life, stated, “It was just a matter of time until Planned Parenthood brought this to the Supreme Court to disregard the lives of our preborn children for the sake of their bottom line.”

Since the overturn of Roe v. Wade, thousands of lives have been saved in Wisconsin and across the United States, thanks to pro-life laws and protections. Wisconsin Right to Life stands by the legitimacy of State Statute 940.04, a lifesaving law that should be enforced.

“A preborn child is a unique individual human life, deserving of protection and the right to life,” continued Gracie Skogman, Legislative and PAC Director of Wisconsin Right to Life. “While Planned Parenthood is fighting for unrestricted abortion until the moment of birth, the pro-life movement is fighting for compassionate support and services for mothers and their pre-born children.”
