What's At Stake on November 6th:

Our state legislators make decisions that impact whether we have access health care. This November, there’s a lot at stake. We need a legislature with a vision to make sure all Wisconsinites are able to get the health care we need. Who we elect to our state Assembly and state Senate create laws that will have a measurable effect on Wisconsinites.

 

Criminal Abortion Ban

With the confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, we’re one step closer abortion becoming illegal in Wisconsin. Kavanaugh will likely be the final vote on the Court needed to overturn Roe v. Wade, the landmark decision that made abortion legal in the United States.

If this happens, abortion – regardless of circumstance – will immediately become a crime in Wisconsin due to a law on the books that pre-dates the Roe decision. Our state lawmakers could work to repeal this law and make sure women in Wisconsin are still able to access abortion care.

Expanding Health Care Acess and Protections for Pre-Existing Conditions

Our representatives in the state legislature can pass laws that will make sure Wisconsinites are able to access high-quality, affordable health care.

Our elected officials should share our values and understand that health care is a right, not a privilege.

We can elect lawmakers who will expand health care access statewide and strengthen protections for people with pre-existing conditions.

Funding for Planned Parenthood

For the last eight years, politicians in our state legislature have made it a priority to make women’s health care more difficult to get. They’ve blocked state funding for Planned Parenthood, which forced the closure of five rural, family planning health centers.

In the years since these closures, no other women’s health care provider has come into those communities, which means less access to birth control, STD testing and treatment and cancer screenings.

This is why Wisconsinites must elect representatives who prioritize health care on November 6th.

We need lawmakers who trust women to make their own health care decisions, will protect health care coverage for people with pre-existing conditions, and will work restore funding to Planned Parenthood.
