ICYMI: Ron Johnson Minimizes Impact of  1849 Statute That Stopped Abortion in Wisconsin & Calls the Overturning of Roe v. Wade a Thing of “Beauty” 

MADISON, Wis. — In a new interview, Ron Johnson once again callously dismissed the reality now facing Wisconsinites who need to access abortion services, saying “abortions are still legal in Illinois.”  Johnson then called the overturning of Roe v. Wade a thing of “beauty.”

“Ron Johnson continues to show Wisconsinites how out of touch he is with their needs and voters will hold him accountable for taking away their right to make their own health care decisions come November,” said Democratic Party of Wisconsin Senate Communications Advisor Philip Shulman.
