MADISON, WI - Today, Planned Parenthood Action Fund released the statement below, condemning Leah Vukmir’s assertion that listening to survivors of sexual assault regarding the Kavanaugh hearings is nothing more than “political posturing.”  

Statement from Tanya Atkinson, President and CEO, Planned Parenthood Advocates of Wisconsin:

Planned Parenthood Advocates of Wisconsin trusts and believes survivors. Our expectation is for our elected officials — including state Senator Vukmir — to take the politics out of women’s health and safety and lead with compassion and dignity for all who come forward.  

“Time and again, through her policy actions and her words, Senator Vukmir has failed to meet basic expectations when it comes to women’s health care. She has previouslyopposed providing rape victims with access to emergency contraception in hospitals, backed abortion bans, and supported bills that would gut health care protections for Americans with pre-existing conditions.”

“We look forward to working with elected officials who are ready to take the politics out of reproductive health, and instead make it an expected public health investment.


Planned Parenthood Action Fund is an independent, nonpartisan, not-for-profit membership organization formed as the advocacy and political arm of Planned Parenthood Federation of America. The Action Fund engages in educational and electoral activity, including voter education, grassroots organizing, and legislative advocacy.
