What the U.S. Supreme Court Overturn of of Roe Means for Wisconsin

ALERT: Roe v. Wade Overturned

The U.S. Supreme Court has stripped us of our federal constitutional right to abortion. The #1 thing you can do right now is help protect abortion access at the state level.

Take Action Today!

Passing the Abortion Rights Preservation Act - which would repeal Wisconsin's criminal abortion ban - is the most important step our elected officials can take to protect access to abortion care in Wisconsin. Tell Wisconsin lawmakers to pass the Abortion Rights Preservation Act!

Contact Your Legislators

What does this mean for abortion access in Wisconsin?

The Supreme Court has taken away our constitutional right to abortion. This ruling takes away the freedom to control our bodies and personal health care decisions, giving it to politicians to decide.

Here in Wisconsin, the Republican members of the state Legislature have refused to repeal the criminal ban on abortion in Wisconsin - following the lead of lawmakers from nearly 200 years ago who also believed women shouldn't have the right to vote. As a result, Planned Parenthood of Wisconsin has temporarily suspended abortion services until we receive clarification from a court about whether the law is enforceable. 

What can I do to help ensure abortion remains legal and accessible in Wisconsin?

Contact your state legislators and ask them to support the Abortion Rights Preservation Act.

The Abortion Rights Preservation Act would repeal Wisconsin’s 1849 criminal abortion law,  that makes abortion a crime. Without Roe, we need to make sure our state’s laws will protect access to abortion care.
