Republicans play politics with women’s health in desperate attempt to distract from harmful budget

MADISON –Representative Lisa Subeck (D-Madison) released the following statement in response to the introduction of a Republican bill that would ban abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy.

“Republicans are playing politics with women’s health, inserting themselves into decisions that should be made privately between a woman and her doctor, in a desperate attempt to distract attention from their self-imposed disaster of a budget.

We must protect a woman’s freedom to make her own health care decisions without interference from politicians. It is unconscionable that Republicans would take medical options away from the most vulnerable women and families.

Introducing a blatantly unconstitutional abortion ban is yet another attempt by Republican legislators to advance the most extreme agenda to help Scott Walker cement votes from the far right in a presidential primary and to provide a convenient distraction from a harmful proposed Republican budget.”
