Issues

Learn about important issues and legislation affecting comprehensive, reproductive health care access in Wisconsin. For the latest news, follow us online.

Criminal Abortion Ban

With the passing of Supreme Court Justice, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, our rights, freedoms, and health care are on the line now more than ever. For the sake of Justice Ginsburg’s legacy, we need to preserve the ideals she spent her life defending. 

If Roe v. Wade is overturned – regardless of circumstance – abortion 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.  
 
With the future of Roe v. Wade more uncertain than ever, we need state lawmakers who work to make sure our state's laws will protect access to abortion care regardless of who is on the Supreme Court.

Expanding Health Care Access

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. 

Funding for Planned Parenthood

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.
