CONTACT: Rep. Jim Steineke (608) 266-2418

MADISON – Assembly Majority Leader Jim Steineke (R-Kaukauna) joined legislative Republicans this morning to make clear that legislation being considered in other states allowing for late-term abortions will not be welcome in Wisconsin. Following a news conference in the state capitol, Rep. Steineke released the following statement:

“As not only a Republican, but as a father, I want to make it clear that any legislation allowing for late-term abortions has no place in our state. Seeing support in some legislatures for this type of legislation – and in some cases, becoming law – around the country is vile and disturbing. We in the legislature are committed to the rights of the unborn and all children and to ensuring this immoral legislation has no traction here in Wisconsin.”
