Representative Lisa Subeck’s Statement on Latest Republican Rollback of Women’s Health Care Access

November 02, 2017

MADISON – State Representative Lisa Subeck (D – Madison) released the following statement today after the State Assembly passed AB 128 which would prohibit health insurance coverage for medically necessary abortions for public employees under the state’s group healthcare plans.

“Since gaining legislative majorities in 2010, Republicans have mounted a continuous campaign of rolling back access to women’s health care. Again today, Republicans treated women as pawns in their political game of “Extreme Politics” with their vote to deny health care coverage for medically indicated abortion. It is time politicians stop practicing medicine without a license and leave critical women’s healthcare decisions to women and their doctor.”
