As the only woman in this race, this fight is personal to Sarah — she’s been loud, clear, and unwavering in her commitment to protecting reproductive freedom in Wisconsin and across the country. She’s proud to be endorsed by EMILY’s List in this fight — the leading organization helping to elect more Democratic pro-choice women who will fight for reproductive rights.
Since Sarah got in this race, she has led on this issue, sounding the alarm about Republican attacks on our reproductive rights and demanding Senate Democrats protect the right to abortion — including passing Senator Tammy Baldwin’s Women’s Health Protection Act.
When the Supreme Court draft opinion on Roe v. Wade leaked, Sarah was the first Senate candidate in the country to respond with a TV ad against Ron Johnson’s attacks on our fundamental right to abortion.
Sarah urged President Biden to take executive action to support access before millions of Americans are deprived of a fundamental right that has been protected for nearly half a century. She specifically called the Biden Administration to enable Medicaid coverage for people traveling out-of-state for abortion services, lift onerous rules that deliberately delay access to abortion pills, and fight attempts by Republican-controlled states to exclude Planned Parenthood from Medicaid programs.
With Roe v. Wade overturned, Wisconsin’s cruel abortion ban from 1849 has gone back into effect and abortion is illegal in our state. No exceptions for rape or incest. Doctors could be punished by up to six years in prison, a fine of up to $10,000 — or both.
Sarah believes we cannot afford to elect Democrats who treat abortion rights as an afterthought or extra credit project because that’s exactly how we got here today. It’s time to put more pro-choice Democratic women in power who will prioritize codifying Roe. Sarah will lead on this issue and won’t back down until people have the fundamental rights they deserve.
Now more than ever, we need a pro-choice fighter like Sarah in the U.S. Senate.
