Protect Life in Wisconsin

Legislative Republicans have spent much of the month of October focusing on legislation that reaffirms our state’s commitment to protecting the right to life of every child, born or unborn.

I was honored to author an Assembly Joint Resolution to declare October 2021 Right to Life month in Wisconsin. This Resolution symbolizes the importance of the Pro-Life movement for the people of Wisconsin and shows that, as a state, we will continue to prioritize life.

In addition to my Assembly Joint Resolution, several of my colleagues have circulated legislation that aims to protect the most vulnerable among us, included in this package are:

  • The Shield the Vulnerable Act (AB 595):
    • The bill prohibits a person from performing/attempting to perform an abortion if the person knows the woman is seeking an abortion solely because of the race, color, national origin, ancestry, gender, or diagnosis or potential diagnosis of a congenital disability.
  • The Prenatal Diagnosis Information Act (AB 594):
    • This legislation requires the physician who administered the prenatal or postnatal test that identified a congenital condition, also provide the parent, or expectant parent, with education resources on that congenital condition and supportive resources that are available to them.
  • A Woman’s Right to Know Act (AB 593):
    • This bill requires physicians to explain that women have an opportunity of time in which the effects of the first pill given in a chemical abortion can be counteracted should they change their mind in the abortion process.

The right to life is a fundamental right established in both the U.S. and Wisconsin Constitutions. We must continue to move towards a society that treats all life as valuable, and this resolution is just one small step in moving towards that goal.


October is Manufacturing Month

October is Manufacturing Month in Wisconsin!

The Manufacturing industry is the biggest contributor to our state’s economy, accounting for nearly 19% of Wisconsin’s total economic output. The industry employs about 1 in 6 Wisconsin workers, providing approximately 475,000 family supporting jobs.

I am proud to continue to support this important industry for the benefit of all Wisconsinites.
