Contact: Senator Devin LeMahieu

Madison- Senate Majority Leader Devin LeMahieu (R-Oostburg) released the following statement on the release of the co-sponsorship letter for LRB 2151 and 2432.

There are deeply held beliefs on both sides of the abortion debate.  Unfortunately, the Governor is only willing to entertain legislation that allows broad access to late-term, elective abortion. 

Making a snap decision announcing his intention to veto a bill that would provide an exemption to Wisconsin’s abortion ban for rape, incest, and the health of the mother makes clear that politics, and not the well-being of Wisconsin’s mothers is the Evers administration’s priority. 

This is not a topic to use as a political football. It takes careful consideration; speaking to our constituents and our families.

Further discussion on this specific proposal is unnecessary.  The bill will not be considered on the floor of the Senate.”
