Congress Did the Right Thing; Quit Insulting Women

VICTORY FOR LIFE! This week, the House voted 227-188 to ban taxpayer funding of abortions under HR7.

ImageWisconsin Family Action president Julaine Appling applauds Congress, “It’s encouraging to see a bill of this nature pass in Congress.  At a minimum, taxpayer money should not be used to pay for this procedure.  Abortion is not health care, and we need to quit insulting women by pretending that it is.”


The Wisconsin delegation voted along party lines, with 4 Republicans voting in favor and the 3 Democrats voting against the bill. Republican Tom Petri did not vote.

Paul Ryan – Yes

Mark Pocan – No

Ron Kind – No

Gwen Moore – No

Tom Petri – Did not vote
