To Protect Abortion in November:





✓ Support

Mandela Barnes (D), Challenger

Wisconsin Lieutenant Gov. Barnes is an unapologetic champion for reproductive rights. If elected to the Senate, his vote would be crucial to the passage of a federal law to protect abortion access in all 50 states.

I am an only child, but I wasn’t my mother’s first pregnancy. She had a complicated pregnancy before me. And she made the decision to end that pregnancy. That was her choice and that’s a choice that should be available to every woman across the entire country.

Mandela Barnes, 7/22/2022


  • Barnes pledges to support the Women’s Health Protection Act — a proposed federal law that would safeguard access to abortion across the country. “We have to … end the filibuster [and] codify the right to choose … into the law,” Barnes said in a July interview.
  • Barnes condemned the Supreme Court decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, which ended federal constitutional protection for abortion. “I might not be here today if Roe v. Wade hadn’t allowed my mother to make the best decision for her health and safety,” he said. “This decision will punish women and cost people their lives.”
  • Along with his pledge to restore and defend abortion rights, Barnes plans to ensure that people can readily access the full spectrum of reproductive health care: “Birth control should be free and widely accessible,” he says. (Twitter, 7/21/2022)


Ron Johnson (R), Incumbent

Johnson is an extremist who opposes abortion rights and has worked for years to overturn Roe v. Wade and strip Wisconsinites of their rights. He has repeatedly voted to block people’s access to essential health care by “defunding” Planned Parenthood.

I’m fully supportive of what the Supreme Court did [by overturning Roe v. Wade]. I obviously confirmed the justices that handed down that correct decision.
