Raising the Status of Wisconsin Women's Health
An update from Wisconsin's women's health policy leader
Sad Day for Women's Health: Senate Passes SB 206 and Votes to Restrict Access to Women's Health Care

Just now, our State Republican Senators passed a bill which requires women seeking an abortion to receive a physically invasive and medically unnecessary ultrasound AND which will force abortion clinics to close by putting extreme restrictions on providers. 
Thank you to the thousands of you who spoke out to try and stop this bill. Sadly, the super majority in our state legislature refuses to listen to the medical community, refuses to listen to women and refuses to listen to the voters who prefer politicians focus on job creation, our children's education, and our health care security rather than mandatory ultrasounds.

This bill was steam rolled through the Senate and is expected to pass the Assembly within the next week.  And Governor Walker is expected to enthusiastically sign this bill knowingly restricting access to women's comprehensive health care in this state. 

Now it's a matter of raising awareness and holding our legislators accountable!
