Statement of Senator Jon Erpenbach asking Senator Fitzgerald and Representative Vos to repeal Wisconsin’s unconstitutional admitting privileges law for doctors that perform legal abortions

 

“Caring for the health of women in Wisconsin should not be threatened by outdated laws passed by a misguided Legislature. The US Supreme Court was clear, admitting privileges for doctors that perform legal abortions are nothing more than an attempt to limit access to reproductive health care. This unconstitutional law should not remain on our books. I am asking current Legislative leaders to commit to repeal of these illegal laws when we return in January. We owe the women of this state resolution on matters of their health, and constitutional laws in our statutes.”
