Wis State Assembly Passes Bill Ending Abortion Coverage for State Employees


via Pro-Life WI

By a 61-35 vote last Thursday, the Wisconsin Assembly passed legislation to prohibit elective abortion coverage in Wisconsin’s public health insurance plans. The legislation now heads to the Wisconsin Senate. If Assembly Bill 128 becomes law, Wisconsin taxpayers would no longer pay for state employees’ abortions.

Pro-Life Life Wisconsin thanks Assembly Republicans for persevering in their ongoing effort to end taxpayer funding of abortion in Wisconsin. We especially thank the bill’s authors, Reps. AndrĂ© Jacque, Janel Brandtjen and Ron Tusler and Senator Dave Craig.

Abortion - the direct, intentional killing of a preborn child - is not health care. In poll after poll, Americans overwhelmingly say they oppose taxpayer-funded abortion. Politico and the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health conducted a poll in September 2016 showing that a majority of likely voters, 58 percent, opposed the use of Medicaid funds to pay for abortion. Similarly, a July 2016 Marist poll found that 62 percent of Americans oppose taxpayer funding of abortion.

We must fully end taxpayer funding of abortion in Wisconsin! It is bad enough that child killing is legal. At the very least, taxpayers should not be forced to fund it.
