Abortion Access Protection Act

This bill would protect access to safe, legal abortion in Wisconsin.

 

Did you know that Wisconsin has a law on the books that would make abortion at any point in pregnancy a crime? If the Supreme Court's decision in Roe v. Wade were overturned, this outdated law from 1849 could be enforced, criminalizing doctors for providing health care. 

Luckily women's health champions in our legislature are working to repeal this law and protect access to care, no matter what happens at the Supreme Court. Rep. Lisa Subeck, Sen. Fred Risser and their colleagues introduced the Abortion Access Protection Act earlier this month to repeal this harmful and outdated abortion ban.

We know that protecting access to health care is incredibly important, especially because the Supreme Court has never been more hostile to Roe v. Wade. Thankfully, our champions are taking action to keep Wisconsinites safe.
