Madison, WI – During the Assembly floor session on Wednesday, Rep. Cindi Duchow (R-Delafield) championed Assembly Joint Resolution 90, which recognizes October as Right to Life Month in Wisconsin. This resolution was part of a broader package of bills the Assembly passed that showed Wisconsin’s commitment to pro-life policies.
“I was honored to author the resolution declaring October 2021 Right to Life month in Wisconsin,” said Rep. Duchow. “This Resolution symbolizes the importance of the Pro-Life movement for the people of Wisconsin and shows that, as a state, we will continue to prioritize life.”
In addition to passing Assembly Joint Resolution 90, the Assembly passed the following pro-life legislation:
Assembly Bill 6: The Born Alive Abortion Survivors Act ensures that any baby born alive after a failed abortion receives immediate and proper medical attention.
Assembly Bill 493: This bill moves to decertify Medicaid providers that provide abortion services.
Assembly Bill 593: A Woman’s Right to Know Act, which requires a physician to inform women receiving an abortion-inducing drug regimen that the first pill in the regimen may not result in an abortion and that she may have potential opportunities to continue the pregnancy if she changes her mind.
Assembly Bill 594: The Prenatal Diagnosis Information Act requires physicians to give certain educational resources and information to expectant parents who receive a prenatal or postnatal congenital condition diagnosis, such as Down syndrome.
“The right to life is a fundamental right established in both the U.S. and Wisconsin Constitutions,” said Rep. Duchow. “We must continue to move towards a society that treats all life as valuable, and this resolution is just one small step in moving towards that goal.”
