MADISON, Wis. – Ron Johnson has supported legislation that would put in place a national abortion ban.
“Ron Johnson has made clear that taking away Wisconsinites’ right to make their own health care decisions is a top priority. Johnson’s dangerous abortion ban is a direct threat to Wisconsinites’ freedoms,” said Democratic Party of Wisconsin Senate Communications Advisor Philip Shulman.
This comes after Johnson took credit for helping overturn Roe v. Wade, which in Wisconsin, has eliminated access to nearly all abortions.
