MADISON, Wis — Ahead of tomorrow’s special session on reproductive healthcare, Governor Tony Evers is urging Wisconsinites to contact their legislators and urge them to repeal the state’s 173-year old abortion ban.
“Inaction will have real consequences for folks and families in every corner of our state—including so many people each of us love and care about,” said Gov. Evers. “The Legislature must act to defend reproductive rights.”
Gov. Evers called a special session of the legislature to take up a repeal of Wisconsin’s 1849 abortion ban, which has sat dormant for the past 50 years, but could go back into effect if the U.S. Supreme Court overturns Roe v. Wade. The majority of Wisconsinites — 61% — support safe and legal abortion access.
