MADISON, Wis. — As Wisconsin legislators prepare to convene next Wednesday for Governor Tony Evers’ special session on reproductive healthcare, the majority of Wisconsinites — 61% — support safe and legal access to abortion.

tony-eversReproductive healthcare decisions should be made by individuals and their doctors, not legislators, justices, and special interests in the U.S. Supreme Court or legislature. That’s why Gov. Evers called a special session on reproductive healthcare, because if the Supreme Court overturns Roe, Wisconsin’s archaic abortion ban — which provides no exceptions for abortion in the cases of rape or incest — could go back into effect, effectively turning back the clock on reproductive healthcare access in Wisconsin by more than a century.

Wisconsin’s abortion ban, passed 12 years before the start of the Civil War, is 173 years old and older than the Republican Party itself. Overturning Roe v. Wade threatens the rights of millions across the country, and in Wisconsin, Gov. Evers will continue to stand for reproductive freedom and the right to an abortion.

“Every Wisconsinite should have the right to make a reproductive healthcare decision that is right for them, and 61% support abortion access,” said Tony for Wisconsin Senior Press Secretary Kayla Anderson. “As they prepare to convene in special session, state legislators should listen to the vast majority of their consituents and heed Governor Evers’ call to repeal Wisconsin’s 173-year old abortion ban.”
