Governor Walker Signs AB 128 Into Law

04.03.18 | by Heather Weininger

         "Today, Governor Walker signed AB 128 into law, which ensures no taxpayer dollars pay for elective abortions under state employees' health plans," stated Heather Weininger, Executive Director of Wisconsin Right to Life. "Wisconsin Right to Life has been waiting 23 years for this major step to roll back taxpayer funding for abortion, and we are very happy to see this long-awaited legislation signed into law."

         Since 1995, there have been no limits on abortion coverage for state employees' health plans, despite Wisconsin law prohibiting taxpayer subsidization of elective abortions. The State Assembly passed AB 128 in November of 2017, and the State Senate passed the bill in February of 2018.

         "We thank bill authors Sen. Dave Craig, Rep. Andre Jacque, Rep. Ron Tusler, and Rep. Janel Brandtjen for their leadership on this bill, and we thank Governor Walker for signing it into law," continued Weininger. "This law significantly protects taxpayers' rights, since no one should be forced to subsidize the taking of innocent human life."
