Wisconsin Republicans Stand Up to Protect the Unborn
"I commend my colleagues in the Assembly and the Senate who are dedicated to protecting the life of the unborn and stand with them in their steadfast opposition to late-term abortions."
[Madison, WI] — Across the country, Democrat legislators are promoting new efforts to loosen late-term abortion restrictions. In Virginia, Democrats themselves are admitting that these plans could allow for the termination of a pregnancy up until birth. Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald released the following statement on Republicans standing up to protect the unborn:
“In a short matter of time, abortion activists have seemingly moved on from their message of ‘safe, legal, and rare’ to supporting a position that would drastically loosen restrictions on late-term abortions. With Democrats across the country making this push, Republicans in Wisconsin will fight back.
“I commend my colleagues in the Assembly and the Senate who are dedicated to protecting the life of the unborn and stand with them in their steadfast opposition to late-term abortions. As the author of the bill that banned partial-birth abortions in Wisconsin, I know that we must never go back to those dark days.
“I thank President Trump for speaking directly to this issue at last night’s State of the Union address and am thankful that the pro-life movement has an ally in the White House.”
Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald (R-Juneau) represents the 13th Senate District, which covers portions of Dodge, Jefferson, Waukesha, Washington, Dane, and Columbia counties.
