MADISON – Today, Governor Evers vetoed Assembly Bills 179, 180, 182, and 183, a package of anti-women’s health bills that would restrict access to reproductive health care. State Representative Lisa Subeck (D-Madison) issued the following statement in response.

“I applaud Governor Evers for vetoing these divisive and inflammatory anti-women’s health bills. These bills are part of a coordinated effort to ban safe, legal abortion altogether in Wisconsin, an outcome we must not allow. I am proud of Governor Evers for trusting women to make our own health care decisions without interference from politicians.

“If Republicans are serious about improving health outcomes for women and families, they should stop obstructing Medicaid expansion and follow Governor Evers’s lead in making needed health care investments such as the Healthy Women, Healthy Babies Initiative.”
