MADISON – Today, Governor Tony Evers vetoed several anti-abortion bills proposed and passed by the Republican majority this session. Senator Melissa Agard (D-Madison) released the following statement:
“Abortion is healthcare. I applaud Governor Evers and his dedication to protecting and preserving a woman’s right to make their own reproductive healthcare decisions. All Wisconsinites deserve to have access to quality and comprehensive care.
“Abortion is a complex issue, and no place for a politician or politics. We must honor people’s fundamental right to make the best decision for themselves by ensuring that legal abortion is safe, affordable, and accessible. No government should interfere with complex medical decisions.”
