Pocan Condemns Wisconsin’s 20 Week Abortion Ban

Jul 20, 2015
Press Release

Washington, D.C - U.S. Rep. Mark Pocan (WI-02) released the following statement after Governor Scott Walker signed a measure into law, which would eliminate safe abortion services after 20 weeks of pregnancy:

“The 20 week abortion ban signed by Governor Walker today is an attack on women’s reproductive health. Women should have the right to make decisions about their own healthcare. Any attempt to restrict access to care puts women’s health and safety in jeopardy. 

 “As the state legislature attempts to eliminate all safe abortion services by trying to shut down clinics, women across the state are struggling to get the best health care services possible. Politicians have no business passing legislation that violates women’s constitutional rights and puts their health at risk.”
