MADISON, WI – Following the announcement of the new Planned Parenthood health clinic in Milwaukee, Senate Democratic Leader Jennifer Shilling (D-La Crosse) released the following statement:

“Despite the continued efforts from Republican leaders to dismantle access to vital healthcare services, it is heartening to see community members rally behind an organization that has been a trusted healthcare provider for the past 80 years. This new state-of-the-art facility will ensure that hardworking women, men and families can continue to receive high quality and compassionate care.”

Wisconsin Planned Parenthood clinics provide services that include breast and cervical cancer screenings, personalized birth control, well woman check-ups, STD testing and treatment to 60,000 patients each year.
