Statement from Senator Jon Erpenbach on SB 179/AB 237 Abortion Ban

"Every single person, on these committees and in this Legislature, should recognize that these decisions should be made by a woman, her family, and her doctor, not by me, not by any politician."

“We have heard heartbreaking stories in this public hearing. Every single person, on these committees and in this Legislature, should recognize that these decisions should be made by a woman, her family, and her doctor, not by me, not by any politician. There is not one recognized medical organization that supports this bill, and the reality is, in Wisconsin it will affect a small number of women, less than 100 in 2013. Every single one of those 100 women, faced difficult, distressing and often heartbreaking decisions with their families.  Doctors should not be made criminals, women’s lives should not be put at risk, all for the sake of politics. I cannot believe that my fellow legislators would ever interfere in the lives of their constituents in such a dangerous, irresponsible way.”
