women-1849MADISON, WI — Today, in advance of the April 4th Supreme Court election, a handful of Republican legislators are circulating a co-sponsorship memo that is purporting to slightly modify Wisconsin’s 1849 criminal abortion ban by adding narrow, limited exceptions.

State Senator Kelda Roys (D-Madison) issued the following statement:

kelda-roys-2018“This is a cynical, desperate ploy by Robin Vos to manipulate the media and mislead voters about the GOP’s extreme anti-choice record and plans. It’s a ‘Hail Mary’ to try to secure a permanent lock on power in Wisconsin, by electing their preferred Supreme Court candidate. No one should fall for this trick. The GOP knows how to pass bills — if this were a serious attempt, they already would have passed it anytime in the last year since it became clear that Republicans on the US Supreme Court would overturn Roe v. Wade.”

“Republican politicians know two things. First, the majority of Wisconsinites and Americans want to restore Roe and have abortion be safe and legal. Second, if Republicans tell the truth about their intentions to further restrict access to abortion, birth control, and infertility treatment, they will keep losing elections.

“Their playbook is clear: if you can’t persuade people to your position, just lie to them in the weeks leading up to an election. We saw Republicans employ this failed tactic with Tim Michels and countless other GOP politicians desperately trying to scrub their websites and walk back their decades of anti-choice comments in the weeks leading up to their shellacking in November’s election. Wisconsin voters won’t fall for it this time, either.”
