Wisconsin’s dangerous abortion restrictions threatened my life and will continue to harm women

Nearly a year and a half after the U.S. Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade and Wisconsin’s 1849 abortion ban went back into effect, it may be easy for some to forget the harm that the ban has been inflicting. But as anti-abortion lawmakers in our state continue to pass legislation to obstruct and stigmatize abortion, I can’t forget what these restrictions do to women like me.

Political obstruction is climate destruction

Wisconsin, like every other state, is facing an uncertain future due to a shifting climate and diminishing natural resources, and instead of working towards climate solutions, our representatives are busy dismantling the very policies that are proven to work.
