MADISON – Today, the State Senate passed a bill banning abortion after 20-weeks. Senator Lena Taylor (D-Milwaukee), who voted against the bill, released the following statement following the vote:

“Not every pregnancy ends the way a family anticipates. Abortion is a very personal and complex medical decision that should be left up to a woman and her family with the counsel of their physician. While I understand these procedures are rare, I believe we should provide women and their doctors every possible medical option available. Politicians should get out of the doctor’s office and stop distracting people from their failures to pass a responsible budget.”

    Well said. Thank you for being a voice of reason.

    Just more distractions from a budget that is full of special interests filled with corporate welfare. If Republicans were so “pro life” maybe they would quit cutting basic benefits for poor children, frail elders and the disabled. Guess after the fetus is born they are on their own.

  3. Tweed says:

    @rnprn Right! The change to IRIS and Family Care so private insurers which have no profit cap can come in and run things. I wonder how much the insurance lobby paid for that.
    WI has one of the best long term care systems in the nation and the self-direction IRIS model was something Bush II wanted mandated.
