On Wednesday, the Wisconsin State Assembly passed four lifesaving bills. One will ensure babies born alive after failed abortion attempts are given the same standard of care as children born alive naturally. Another will protect unborn children from abortions that are based on their sex, race, or disability diagnosis.
The third will require women who are seeking chemical abortions to be given information that should they change their mind after taking the first of two abortifacient drugs but not the second, she may be able to save her unborn child. It will also update abortion reporting requirements. The final bill will prohibit private abortion providers and their affiliates from receiving Medical Assistance certification.
“We know that Governor Evers wants to support healthy moms and babies, and so do we,” said ,”Heather Weininger, executive director of Wisconsin Right to Life. “These bills are a start to doing just this.”
“If we want to ensure all Wisconsinites have access to health care, education, and productive lives, as Governor Evers has stated, we need to do all we can to protect their most basic right: life.
“Wisconsin Right to Life thanks the Assembly for passing these four bills and proving what we know to be true: the majority of Wisconsin residents care about life.”
