Please ask your assemblyperson and state senator to co-sponsor and support the Abortion Rights Protection Act or SB 75 and AB 106. This act would repeal an 1849 statute that criminalizes abortion in Wisconsin. If Roe v. Wade is overturned, this law would go into effect, subjecting physicians who provide abortion with felony charges and up to six years in prison.
Given the precarious future of abortion, we must finally overturn this archaic, anti-woman, anti-science law now. The Abortion Rights Protection Act would repeal this 170-year-old law and help to preserve the future of abortion rights in Wisconsin.
Unfortunately, extremist Wisconsin lawmakers have been pushing to advance seven new restrictions on reproductive health. This is amid the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision not to block the ban that the state of Texas has effectively placed on abortion. So they need to hear from you!
As your constituent, I urge you to co-sponsor and support the passage of the Abortion Rights Protection Act. This act will ensure that no matter what happens with Roe v. Wade, safe and legal abortion care will be available in our state.
The Abortion Rights Preservation Act will finally repeal the archaic, 170-year-old law that makes abortion a felony and calls for the imprisonment of physicians who perform such care. It will thus ensure that the right to abortion is protected in Wisconsin. With more than 70 percent of Americans opposing the overturn of Roe v. Wade, any bill aiming to restrict Roe is inconsistent with American values.
