Steineke Statement on Born Alive Veto

MADISON – Assembly Majority Leader Jim Steineke (R-Kaukauna), author of the Born Alive Abortion Survivors legislation, released the following statement in response to Governor Evers’ decision to veto four pro-life bills this afternoon:

“I’m incredibly saddened, though not surprised, that Governor Evers has chosen to ignore the voices of Wisconsinites from all over the state who support these pieces of legislation. From introduction, to public hearings, to a rally just yesterday, people have come out in droves to support these common sense, life-saving measures. Unfortunately, Governor Evers has once again made clear that he believes protecting babies in Wisconsin simply isn’t a productive use of his time.

“As a father, conservative, and legislator, I will continue fighting for those who don’t have a voice and ensuring our unborn receive the protections they deserve.”
