“It certainly didn’t take long for Governor-elect Evers to put into motion what we feared
before election day,” stated Heather Weininger, Executive Director of Wisconsin Right
“Evers made it very clear to us during his campaign how he felt about abortions, it’s just
like a tonsillectomy. Now he has placed on a health policy advisory council the
President and CEO of Planned Parenthood in Wisconsin.”
“It’s clear that this is going to be a long four years of battling against one of the most
pro-abortion governors we have had in years. Those of us who have worked for
decades to protect life will be fighting at every turn when it comes to Tony Evers and his
plans for healthcare.”
“It doesn’t take a medical degree to know that killing an unborn baby is not healthcare.
I’m calling on Governor-elect Evers to immediately remove Tonya Atkinson from his
Health Policy Advisory Council.”
Wisconsin Right to Life’s work is to provide woman an alternative to abortion. Planned
Parenthood does not provide healthcare to woman, especially when performing
abortions on living unborn children.
