Ad highlights Sen. Johnson’s history of opposing abortion rights; encourages people to call on Sen. Johnson to vote for the Women's Health Protection Act

WASHINGTON — Today, Planned Parenthood Action Fund launched television ads in Wisconsin following the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, which has left abortion virtually inaccessible in Wisconsin. The $1.5 million TV ad buy highlights the dangerous consequences that the court’s decision is already having for patients and doctors in the state and lifts up Sen. Johnson’s record opposing Wisconsinites’ access to abortion care. The ad encourages residents to call Sen. Johnson and urge him to vote for the Women’s Health Protection Act, federal legislation that would establish a statutory right to provide and receive abortion care. The legislation, which is backed by the White House, passed the U.S. House of Representatives on Sept. 24, 2021. Prior to Friday’s Supreme Court decision, Johnson has twice voted against the bill.

Statement from Jenny Lawson, Vice President of Organizing and Engagement Campaigns, Planned Parenthood Action Fund:

“In light of the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, we need all our lawmakers to step up and protect abortion access. Sen. Johnson has spent his career working to undermine Wisconsinites’ reproductive rights. Now that Planned Parenthood of Wisconsin has had to suspend abortion services, Wisconsinites must demand that Sen. Johnson vote for the Women’s Health Protection Act to protect people seeking reproductive health care not only in Wisconsin, but across the country. Wisconsinites don’t have time to wait for Sen. Johnson to act."
