All Wisconsinites need health care that is compassionate, comprehensive, and unbiased. And our elected officials can support policies that ensure Wisconsinites are able to access high-quality, affordable health care.
Policies like the "Healthy Women, Healthy Babies" initiative that invests in women's health by prioritizing access to preventive reproductive health care, programs that facilitate healthy pregnancies and births, and eliminating racial disparities in maternal and infant health outcomes.
Protections for people with pre-existing conditions have saved lives and livelihoods. We can elect leaders who share our values and understand that health care is a right, not a privilege, and work to expand health care access statewide and strengthen protections for people with pre-existing conditions.
For years, politicians in our state legislature and in Congress have attacked Planned Parenthood’s patients’ access to health care.
When politicians talk about “defunding” Planned Parenthood, they really mean blocking patients who depend on public health care funds from getting their care at Planned Parenthood health centers. Many of these patients are people with low incomes who don’t have health insurance, or who rely on public health care funding like Medicaid.
Attempts to block these patients from getting care at Planned Parenthood keeps them from getting critical preventive services, like birth control, lifesaving cancer screenings, and STD testing and treatment.
