PPWI has restored abortion services in Madions, Milwaukee, and Sheboygan
A decision by the Dane County Circuit Court in December made it clear that the 1849 law does not apply for voluntary abortions. The decision allowed Planned Parenthood of Wisconsin to restore this necessary reproductive health care.
It's crucial to codify reproductive rights into law in Wisconsin now that abortion services have been restored. This ensures that these rights remain protected, regardless of who sits on the Supreme Court.
Abortion Access is already under attack. Wisconsin Republicans passed a 14-week abortion ban.
Before Roe v. Wade was overturned, Wisconsin already had numerous restrictions that made it difficult for people who could get pregnant to access this essential health care services. On November 1, 2023, Democratic legislators introduced the Reproductive Freedom Act, aiming to repeal some of these barriers with three key components.
- Reproductive Freedom Act
Restores the power of individuals to make their own pregnancy health care decisions by removing medically unnecessary restrictions and bans on abortion care, and removes inappropriate political interference into the doctor-patient relationship.
- Patient's Right to Medically Accurate Information Act
Affirms the obligation of health care providers to provide medically accurate information to patients, and creates a right for patients to receive medically accurate information from their health care provider.
- Stop Publicly Funded Coercion Act
Ensures that publicly funded pregnancy counseling facilities provide all-options counseling - including abortion.
