MADISON, Wis. – With less than a month until the general election, Ron Johnson is in full panic mode over his dangerous anti-choice record and is trying to rewrite history.
But here are the facts:
- Johnson cosponsored a federal abortion ban that made no exceptions for rape, incest, or the life of the woman.
- Johnson has supported eight national abortion bans and has left open the possibility for future national abortion bans.
- Johnson called the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade a “victory” and bragged about confirming the justices who handed down the decision.
- Johnson has been so callous about the impact of Wisconsinites’ losing their reproductive freedoms he’s said they “can move,” if they don’t like the abortion laws in their state, that the repealing of Roe v. Wade might be a “little messy,” and that the decision was not a “huge threat to women’s health.”
