MADISON – Today, the U.S. Senate failed to advance the Women’s Health Protection Act, which would have prohibited government restrictions on access to abortion services. State Treasurer and candidate for U.S. Senate Sarah Godlewski slammed the Senate’s failure to advance legislation that would finally ensure reproductive freedom for women in Wisconsin and across America.

Sarah Godlewski released the following statement:

“Generations before us didn’t fight for reproductive rights just to have us sit by the wayside and let it all be wiped away. With the future of Roe hanging on by a shoestring, we can no longer afford to elect leaders who treat abortion rights as an afterthought. The only way out is by electing champions who will never back down from this fight–and you can be damn sure I won’t.”

Proving this isn’t an extra credit project for Godlewski, last fall, her campaign launched a six-figure, early voter contact campaign leading with the ad “Afterthought.” Tomorrow, Godlewski will meet with health care providers and reproductive rights activists to discuss the implications of this vote.
