No other governor in the history of Wisconsin has worked so aggressively to take away so much from women and families.
And never before has a Wisconsin governor acted so quickly to deny thousands of Wisconsinites health care they depend on.
Since taking office in 2011, Gov. Scott Walker and his right wing allies in the state Legislature have stolen the freedom and opportunity all Wisconsin women and men deserve when planning and caring for their families.
The last five years have been a never-ending assault on the health and well being of women and families in Wisconsin.
Since taking office, Gov. Scott Walker has
- Passed a total of 12 policies that restrict women’s access to health information, essential care, and pay equity.
- Signed five abortion restrictions that take away services and threaten doctors with prison time for providing safe and legal abortion.
- Authorized the state to spend taxpayer money to appeal two ongoing lawsuits despite conclusive court rulings.
Gov. Scott Walker signed a dangerous and intrusive abortion ban
into law, once again ignoring opposition from doctors and leading medical groups
across the state. The ban, which Walker called for alongside extreme
groups with the stated goal of banning abortion, marks the fifth abortion restriction
that Walker has signed into law as governor and is a stark
reminder of the extreme agenda that he’d bring all the way to the White
House if given the chance.
Scott Walker is callously trading women's health for the support of extreme special interest groups and women in Wisconsin are paying the price. Government has no business in our families’ personal, private medical decisions.
When it comes to women's health, there are no winners in Scott Walker’s race to the bottom.
