WISCONSIN: Wisconsin Democrats Speak on Reproductive Rights


Associated Press (01.23.12) - Tuesday, January 24, 2012

Democratic Reps. Terese Berceau, Chris Taylor, and Kelda Helen Roys held a news conference Monday at the Capitol to announce they have submitted a joint resolution to proclaim Jan. 22-28 as Reproductive Rights Awareness Week. Recent state legislation reduces low-income women's access to health care, said the lawmakers, who also expressed disappointment over a bill that would make contraception instruction an optional part of sex education. That measure has received Senate approval and now is before the Assembly. The reproductive rights resolution is being introduced in the legislatures of 14 other states, including Alaska, Florida, and Ohio.
