Never have women lost so much in such a short period of time under Gov. Walker with his extreme anti-women agenda.

The governor signed into law a bill that forces a woman seeking an abortion to have an invasive ultrasound. The law bans doctors who lack admitting privileges at nearby hospitals from performing the procedures. These are insurmountable obstacles and result in unwanted children.

Gov. Walker eliminated all state funding for family planning services for low-income residents. Fifty Planned Parenthood clinics are in jeopardy. Fifty-two thousand women in Wisconsin who receive contraceptive information and breast exams for cancer will have to find alternative services.

Mary Burke, the governor’s opponent, believes personal decisions by women should not be made by politicians.
