Key pro-life bills await passage in State Senate - Act Now!




Bills establishing a “Choose Life” Wisconsin specialty license plate and banning abortion coverage in state employee health plans have passed the Wisconsin State Assembly and now await passage in the State Senate.  It is critical that the State Senate pass these pro-life bills in January and send them to Governor Walker for his expected signature. You can help make this happen!

Assembly Bill (AB) 206, legislation authored by Rep. Andre Jacque (R-De Pere) and Sen. Mary Lazich (R-New Berlin), establishes a “Choose Life” Wisconsin specialty license plate. The “Choose Life” plate will provide a wonderful opportunity for Wisconsinites to express their pro-life beliefs and facilitate and encourage adoption as a positive, life-affirming choice for women with unplanned pregnancies.  Choose Life Wisconsin, Inc. will disburse the proceeds from the sale of the plates to pregnancy care centers throughout the state.

Assembly Bill (AB) 216, legislation authored by Rep. Jacque and Sen. Glenn Grothman (R-West Bend), bans abortion coverage in state employee health plans and provides an exemption from the state contraceptive insurance coverage mandate for non-profit religious organizations, religious employers and religious institutions of higher education.  This exemption mirrors the federal exemption for religious entities under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (Obamacare).
