Madison… Today, Senate Majority Leader Devin LeMahieu (R-Oostburg) released the following statement regarding Governor Evers’ special session call on Wisconsin abortion regulations:
“Governor Evers and modern Democrats hold an extreme and abhorrent view on the taking of innocent life. If Tony Evers had his way, babies would be allowed to be killed up until the moment of birth,” said Leader LeMahieu. “His views are so extreme, he twice vetoed our ‘Born Alive’ bill which would require a doctor to offer life-saving treatment to a baby who survives a botched abortion.”
The Supreme Court of the United States has not yet issued its decision in Dobbs v Jackson Women’s Health Organization. There have been no changes to abortion law in Wisconsin.
“Wisconsin law has not changed and our pro-life position has not changed. Killing innocent babies is not healthcare,” said Leader LeMahieu. “We will gavel out of another blatantly political special session call from this partisan governor.”
“Governor Evers should get back to the basics of good governance. His administration has consistently failed to complete their most fundamental duties. The people of Wisconsin need Governor Evers to use his federal funds to tackle rampant inflation, demand his broken agencies perform their core missions, and get serious about the violent crime plaguing our communities. Instead, he is pandering to the extreme wing of his base in an effort to win re-election,” said Leader LeMahieu. “Wisconsin needs a Governor right now, not a politician.”
