We’ve received devastating news

by | Jan 17, 2019

Planned Parenthood of Wisconsin has filed a lawsuit challenging some of Wisconsin’s protective, pro-life laws.

I released the following statement earlier Wednesday:

“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.

“Our concern for women and their safety has led 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 new 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.”

The bad news doesn’t stop there, though.

A few weeks ago, I shared that Tonya Atkinson, president and CEO of Planned Parenthood of Wisconsin had been appointed by Tony Evers to his Health Policy Advisory Council.

That’s right — the president and CEO of the same Planned Parenthood that has filed suit against our pro-life laws is an adviser to Governor Tony Evers.

This is all the sad reality of a pro-abortion governor and attorney general.

We know that we have the truth on our side. We will not stop working until every innocent life is protected. Please give generously and help us defend the most defenseless against the onslaught of Planned Parenthood.

For Their Lives.
