MADISON) – Today, a State Senate Committee passed a ban on abortions after 20-weeks. The Senate is expected to take up the bill next week. Following today’s vote, Senator Lena Taylor (D-Milwaukee) released the following statement:

“Not every pregnancy ends the way a family anticipates. Abortion is a very personal and complex medical decision that should be left up to a woman and her family with the counsel of their physician. While I understand these procedures are rare, I believe we should provide women and their doctors every possible medical option available. Politicians should get out of the doctor’s office and stop distracting people from their failures to pass a responsible budget.”
