Gracie Skogman of Wisconsin Right to Life reports that in fulfilling his promise to veto any measure that limits abortion, Governor Tony Evers (D) has vetoed five pro-life bills recently passed by the state legislature.
"They were written with the purpose of supporting women and supporting preborn children, especially mothers in crisis and children with disabilities such as Down syndrome, so we are incredibly disappointed in the governor and his lack of support for those preborn children with disabilities," Skogman laments.
But Wisconsin Right to Life is anxiously awaiting the U.S. Supreme Court decision that could overturn Roe vs. Wade.
"We are one of those very unique states because we have a pre-Roe ban on abortion," Skogman explains.
The law, passed 172 years ago, bans abortion in The Badger State in all cases.
Pro-life legislators in Pennsylvania are similarly taking a two-pronged approach to get pro-life legislation passed without their pro-abortion governor's help.
On another note, Skogman says 2022 could bring change if pro-life voters show up at the polls.
"We know that Wisconsinites are very pro-life," Skogman tells American Family News. "They are passionate about these issues, and we have an election coming up in the fall. So, two big things could change regardless of what the governor did."
The 1973 case legalized abortions in all 50 states, but now, with Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health Organization, the Supreme Court appears to be leaning in the direction of overturning it, or at least weakening it.
