Wisconsin Republicans’ Out of Touch, Anti-choice Agenda

MADISON, Wis. – The far-right majority of the Supreme Court, aided and abetted by anti-abortion extremists in Congress, now appears set to overturn Roe v. Wade and block access to abortion across the country. This draft opinion is a result of Republican politicians in Wisconsin and across the country waging a decades-long, radical war on reproductive health care. 

Despite the overwhelming majority of Americans supporting access to safe and legal abortion, Wisconsin Republicans continue to push an extreme agenda that is wildly unpopular and out of touch:

FiveThirtyEight: “According to an ABC News/The Washington Post poll conducted in early November, 75 percent of Americans thought abortion should be left to a woman and her doctor, while only 20 percent thought it should be regulated by law.”

Forbes: “A majority of Americans broadly believe abortion should be legal and more than 60% believe people should be able to obtain abortions during the first trimester of their pregnancy, a new Associated Press/NORC poll finds.”

New York Times: “Most Americans disagree with the Supreme Court decision on Texas’ abortion ban, a poll finds.”

CNN: “Just 30% of Americans say they’d like to see the Supreme Court completely overturn its Roe vs. Wade decision, with 69% opposed.”

Marquette Poll: 61% of Wisconsin voters believe abortion “should be legal in all or most cases.”
