Sen. Taylor statement on passage of 20-week abortion ban
"Politicians should get out of the doctor’s office and stop distracting people from their failures to pass a responsible budget."
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.”
