MADISON, Wis. – Today, Assembly Democrats gathered to affirm our commitment to repealing Wisconsin’s antiquated abortion ban. Rep. Palmeri released the following statement:
“As we observe what would have been the 50th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, we are forced to face the current state of reproductive rights in Wisconsin. Unfortunately, Wisconsinites are not being given the chance to use their voice at the ballot box,” stated Rep. Palmeri.
“Everyone in the state of Wisconsin deserves to have control over their own personal healthcare decisions, and to make those decisions with licensed physicians, not out of touch politicians. Wisconsinites are entitled to safe, legal, and private health decisions.
“Today, I along with my Democratic colleagues, reaffirmed our commitment to restoring the rights that were taken away from Wisconsinites last summer. We will not back down until every person has access to comprehensive reproductive care and the right to bodily autonomy in this state.”
