On Wednesday, October 27th, four pro-life bills will be brought for a vote in the Wisconsin State Assembly:
The Born Alive Survivors Protection Act (AB6) It is a heartbreaking reality that children do survive failed abortion attempts, and are often not given lifesaving medical care. AB6, the Born Alive Survivors Protection Act, introduced by Senator Roth and Representative Steineke, would ensure that these children are given the medical treatment and care they need and protects them from being left to die after a failed abortion. While it does not in any way deny a woman access to abortion, this bill instead gives clear guidance to the health care community on the standard of care a child born alive after a failed abortion attempt should receive. AB6 is vital to continue our fight to defend vulnerable children in Wisconsin.
The Shield the Vulnerable Act (SB593/AB595), introduced by Senator Testin and Representative Dittrich, would ban abortions that are performed solely based on the sex, race, or disability diagnosis of the unborn child. Deciding who is deserving of life based on these inherited characteristics is discrimination and must be stopped. The Shield the Vulnerable Act would put an end to such discrimination, and emphasize the intrinsic value of all unborn children.
The Prenatal Diagnosis Information Act (SB592/AB594), also introduced by Senator Testin and Representative Dittrich, would require 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. Each child’s life is valuable and worthy of protection, especially those who are diagnosed with a congenital condition, such as down syndrome. When faced with these diagnoses, parents can face uncertainty and questions and are in need of support and resources.
A Woman’s Right to Know Act (SB591/AB593), introduced by Senator Kapenga and Speaker Vos, would require physicians to explain that women have a small 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 and chose life for their unborn child. This legislation also enhances the induced abortion reporting requirements, which would provide much needed transparency regarding abortion in Wisconsin. Abortion effects women and their unborn children in irreversible ways, and can lead to lifelong consequences. Women have a right to transparency in healthcare, and support when they are making these lifechanging decisions.
We urge you to reach out to your state legislators, and ask them to support these life-saving bills!
