Wisconsin Gov Tony Evers Signs Order for Special Session to Repeal Abortion Ban
September 22, 2022 | Wisconsin
Wisconsin Governor Tony Evers has signed an executive order calling for a special session to repeal the state’s abortion ban protecting babies from abortions.
Wisconsin is one of 15 states currently protecting babies from abortions thanks to a pre-Roe abortion ban that went into effect following the Supreme Court decision to overturn Roe v. Wade.
“At the end of the day, Wisconsinites, and women in particular, were not only stripped of their reproductive freedom, but they currently don’t have a right to enact the change they need to protect that freedom without having to get permission from the legislature,” Evers said during a press conference Wednesday. “That’s just wrong, and it’s time for us to change that.”
The ban doesn’t deprive women of reproductive freedom, it merely says babies can’t be killed in aboritons. Women have a myriad of ways they can prevent getting pregnant.
The last time Evers called the legislature into a special session over abortion, he was calling on lawmakers to repeal the ban. Lawmakers gaveled in and out of the session without taking action, thwarting Evers’ plan to legalize abortions up to birth.
He now wants a constitutional amendment allowing voters to hold votes on state laws and repeal them that way since he knows the legislature is not going to pass a bill to repeal the pro-life law… (Excerpt from LIFENEWS.COM)
