Statement on the 43rd anniversary of Roe v. Wade
"It's a shame that 43 years later after the Supreme Court has settled the issue of reproductive rights that some still want to roll back the clock," said Martha Laning.
“43 years ago today, the Supreme Court made it clear that a woman has the right to make her own health care decisions.
“On this day, we celebrate a historic ruling that respects a woman’s right to make private decisions with her doctor. We are also reminded today that we must stand firm against efforts to undermine or chip away at those rights.
“Wisconsin families look to their leaders to focus first on economic policy. Instead, we’ve seen a Republican-controlled legislature focused on curtailing access to a legal and safe abortions, and passing draconian legislation that puts women’s health at risk.
“It’s a shame that 43 years later after the Supreme Court has settled the issue of reproductive rights that some still want to roll back the clock. Today, the Democratic Party of Wisconsin recommits itself to fighting to protect reproductive freedom.”
