Statement from Senator Jon Erpenbach on the passage of Senate Bill 179 – Abortion Ban
"Women and families in Wisconsin facing difficult decisions have had their health and lives put on the line with the passage of the dangerous abortion ban authored by Senator Lazich."
“Women and families in Wisconsin facing difficult decisions have had their health and lives put on the line with the passage of the dangerous abortion ban authored by Senator Lazich. Not one person in the Senate today is qualified to make these types of medical decisions, we are not doctors we are politicians. This bill puts the health of women on the line and prevents medical professionals from making decisions with their patients. By moving ahead with legislation that we know contains junk science that places non-medical terms in the statute, even the author must admit this Legislation is doomed to land in the courts. In the meantime we have threatened doctors and women in Wisconsin for political gain.”
