Restoring Abortion Care in Wisconsin

Restoring Abortion Care in Wisconsin

A message from PPWI President & CEO
Tanya Atkinson, DATE

On June 24, 2022, the US Supreme Court took away our constitutional right to abortion overturning 50 years of court precedent. At that time, Planned Parenthood of Wisconsin made the agonizing decision to suspend abortion services to protect the physicians and staff who care for patients and our communities from the threat of being prosecuted under an archaic Wisconsin law criminalizing abortion. For more than a year, patients have been forced to navigate significant barriers to access safe, legal abortion, if they were able to access that care at all.    
A decision by the Dane County Circuit Court in July made it clear that the 1849 law is not enforceable for voluntary abortions. Planned Parenthood of Wisconsin, in consultation with attorneys, physicians, partners, and other stakeholders, has made the decision to restore this necessary reproductive health care. We are incredibly grateful to the many supporters across Wisconsin who didn’t give up and helped in so many ways to make this possible.   
Planned Parenthood will never back down until abortion access is protected -- and expanded -- for the patients who count on us for care. No matter what.
