Letter Opposing AB 128

Wednesday April 19, 2017


Dear Honorable Members of Assembly Committee on Health,

YWCA Madison supports every woman’s access to comprehensive healthcare. That means supporting access to the full range of reproductive healthcare, including abortion. We oppose AB 128 and ask you to vote against it.

The Wisconsin State Legislature needs to stop interfering with Wisconsin residents’ legal access to healthcare. If women are to succeed and become providers for themselves and their families, they must have autonomy over their bodies. That includes making their own, personal medical decisions. When women have access to full information and all medical options as allowed by law, they make the best decision for themselves. That includes access to abortion as an option, to ensure that women choose—and decide not to choose—abortion on their own terms.

Vote down AB 128. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me or Carousel Bayrd, our Policy and Partnership Coordinator, at (608) 395-2196.


Vanessa McDowell
Interim CEO
