From the Wisconsin Right to Life News Release:
“Sen. Erpenbach and Rep. Taylor are clearly dissatisfied with the incredible right-to-life legislative gains we have made to inform women about the reality of abortion, and to protect the unborn from painful late-term abortions,” stated Heather Weininger, Executive Director of Wisconsin Right to Life. “Their so-called ‘Patients Reproductive Health Act’ that they introduced today is nothing more than a distraction, as Wisconsin continues to save both mothers and their unborn children from the pain of abortion.”
Since 2011, Wisconsin Right to Life has been on the forefront of major right-to-life legislative victories. From the passage of Sonya’s Law, which gives mothers the opportunity to see their unborn children on an ultrasound before making a life-or-death abortion decision, to the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, which protects unborn babies 20 weeks post-fertilization and beyond from painful late-term abortions, major steps have been made to protect the right to life in Wisconsin. In 2014 alone, abortions have decreased by 10%, demonstrating how effective Wisconsin’s right-to-life legislation is in helping women and their unborn children.
