[Waukesha, Wis.] — In response to the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, candidate for governor Rebecca Kleefisch released the following statement:
“Today’s decision is a victory for unborn babies across America. Countless lives will be saved because of the wisdom of the current Supreme Court.
“Abortion harms both moms and babies. After this win, the pro-life community can focus all of our efforts to supporting moms, dads, and their babies to promote a culture of life and success for families.
“Now the abortion debate goes back to states like Wisconsin, where it always belonged. As a state we must hold firm for the voiceless and protect their right to life — and that means enforcing the laws we have on the books. I remain committed to my 100% pro-life stance.
“One day, we will all look back on Roe v. Wade as one of the U.S. Supreme Court’s most egregious cases that allowed the killing of more than 60 million babies over nearly half a century. We must look to a future where we value life and support moms and babies.”
