Planned Parenthood Advocates of Wisconsin (PPAWI) issued the following statement today, in response to President Biden’s Executive Order aimed at protecting reproductive health care in light of the Supreme Court’s overturn of Roe.

Statement from Mike Murray, Executive Director of Planned Parenthood Advocates of WI

“PPAWI is grateful for the Biden administration's commitment to take executive action to protect access to abortion care. In addition to today's actions, we urge the Biden administration to continue to explore and implement other executive actions that have been proposed by advocates and members of Congress to further protect abortion access.

Unfortunately, none of the actions announced today will restore access to abortion care in Wisconsin. That responsibility primarily rests with Wisconsin's Legislature, which could and should act to immediately repeal Wisconsin's criminal abortion ban. Every day that legislative Republicans choose inaction is another day where they are making the choice to deny essential abortion care to women and other people who can become pregnant in Wisconsin. In addition to our state legislature, Congress should act now to pass federal legislation that would restore the protections of Roe as federal law.

Should our state legislature or Congress continue to abdicate these responsibilities, the only other way to restore abortion access in Wisconsin is to have a court of competent jurisdiction clarify that Wisconsin's criminal abortion ban is unenforceable.”

Planned Parenthood Advocates of Wisconsin is the advocacy arm of Planned Parenthood of Wisconsin. PPAWI engages in legislative and educational activity and works to elect candidates to office that support these goals.
