2009-2010 Legislative Session

Forcing Contraception Education / Instruction into Public Schools

Assembly Bill 458 and its companion bill in the Senate, Senate Bill 324, would effectively prohibit local public school districts from adopting "abstinence-only" or "abstinence-centered" human growth and development programs - a freedom and flexibility they enjoy under current law. Under this legislation, if a school district chooses to adopt a human growth and development program it would be forced to include in its curriculum instruction on the "health benefits, side effects, and proper use of contraceptives and barrier methods."

Government-funded birth control, whether provided directly or promoted educationally, encourages sexual promiscuity and with it a host of social pathologies including underage pregnancies, chemical and surgical abortions, and sexually transmitted diseases. Hormonal contraceptives are also dangerous in their own right, posing serious and sometimes fatal health risks to women and often causing pre-implantation chemical abortions.

On November 5, 2009, the Wisconsin State Assembly passed AB 458 by a vote of 48-43. (click here for the roll call vote.)  The Wisconsin State Senate passed AB 458 on January 28, 2010, by a vote of 18-15 (click here for the roll call vote.)  Governor Doyle then signed AB 458 into law as 2009 Wisconsin Act 134 on February 24, 2010. Click here for a copy of Act 134. Pro-Life Wisconsin thanks all those who called, emailed or wrote their state legislators in opposition to this harmful bill.

Pro-Life Wisconsin opposes the sexualization of our children! As parents and concerned citizens, we need to fight this assault on our youth. Chastity/abstinence is the only message that will protect their bodies and preserve their innocence. Pro-Life Wisconsin urges public school districts across Wisconsin to drop their human growth and development programs.  If a school district retains or initiates a program, we urge parents to opt their children out of the program and either teach the subject matter themselves or find a private program that teaches chastity/abstinence.  Our children's lives depend on it, born and preborn.

Biennial Budget Bill

The state biennial budget bill (Assembly Bill 75) as passed the Democrat-controlled Assembly and Senate and signed into law by Governor Doyle contains three Planned Parenthood of Wisconsin legislative agenda items. Together these items undermine parental authority and sexualize our teen children as well as violate the lawful conscience rights of pro-life pharmacists and health insurers. These sweeping social policy items had no place in our state budget bill.

The three items are: 1) expanding a government-funded, confidential birth control program to include teen boys; 2) forcing Wisconsin pharmacies to dispense prescribed contraceptive drugs or devices; and 3) forcing public and private health insurance plans to cover contraceptive drugs and devices. The social implications of these measures are enormous and should have been debated in the light of day as separate legislation.

Confidential government-funded birth control undermines parents and threatens the physical and moral health of our teen children. And the birth control mandates violate the lawful (constitutional) conscience rights of pro-life pharmacists, health insurers, businesses and patients. It's ironic that the same individuals who argue so stridently against government intrusion in our private lives led the charge for these birth control mandates - public mandates forcing all of us to embrace birth control whether we want to or not.

Pro-Life Wisconsin worked hard to remove these socially damaging policy items from the budget bill. We thank all of you who phoned, wrote, or emailed your legislators throughout this lengthy process.
