Wednesday, Jan 16 2013

The 2013-2014 WI legislative session has begun. On January 10, the Assembly met and passed just 3 new pieces of legislation and 2 of them had to do with new rules applying to their body, including the Gallery.

This was done for a number of reasons, the most important one - to make it harder for constituents to observe their lawmakers in action.

MADISON – Today marks the 40th anniversary of the landmark Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision which legalized abortion and granted constitutional protection to a woman’s right to make her own reproductive health decisions. Rep. Chris Taylor released the following statement on the anniversary and the current struggle to keep reproductive health care affordable and accessible:

“On the 40th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, we honor the health care providers, staff, advocates and activists who have committed their lives to providing essential reproductive health services to women and the advocacy to make sure these services continue to be available. When abortion services are illegal and unavailable, women die and maternal health is severely compromised.

“But on this 40th anniversary of Roe, opponents of safe, legal abortion services and birth control are diligently working to roll back access to these services and the choices women have over their lives. Though Governor Walker insists that jobs and the economy are his focus (Wisconsin’s bottom of the barrel job creation record under his leadership should compel such attention), his administration has ushered in unprecedented cuts to family planning services, comprehensive sex education and abortion services. Governor Walker, who opposes all legal abortions, including for rape and incest victims as well as birth control, has proclaimed today ‘Protect Life Day’ in Wisconsin. Governor Walker and opponents of reproductive health care don’t understand that access to these services are essential to women and their families and the choices they make in their lives.

“Today, we should not only celebrate a court ruling that gives women the right to make their most personal and private decisions, but we should also pledge our steadfast opposition to those who are trying to dial back the clock on women’s rights.”
