Senator Baldwin Releases Statement on Planned Parenthood of Wisconsin Resuming Abortion Services

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, U.S. Senator Tammy Baldwin released the following statement on the announcement that Planned Parenthood of Wisconsin will resume providing abortion services in Wisconsin:

“When Roe v. Wade was overturned, women in Wisconsin were sent back to 1849, living under a criminal abortion ban that stripped away their freedom to control their bodies, families, and futures,” said Senator Baldwin. “Since then, the people of Wisconsin have said loud and clear that they want their rights back. And today, we are taking an important step forward in getting those rights back. Women in Wisconsin will now be better able to access the health care they need and deserve. I applaud Governor Evers, Attorney General Kaul, and every Wisconsinite who has stood up and spoken out in this fight for our rights. Today is welcome news for Wisconsin, but know that our fight continues. In Washington, I’m proud to be leading the fight to make sure that every American in every zip code is able to make their own health care decisions, without politicians or judges butting in. In the proud tradition of our state’s motto, today we move Forward.”
