Bills redirect taxpayer dollars away from state’s largest abortion provider
Madison – “We couldn’t agree with Governor Walker more,” said Julaine Appling, president of Wisconsin Family Action. “As he noted at today’s billing signing, every taxpayer in Wisconsin, whether or not they are pro-life, should be pleased that with the signing of these bills millions of their hard-earned tax dollars will stop being used inefficiently and wastefully. And we would add, even fraudulently.”
Today, at a beautiful pregnancy resource center, Life’s Connection in Waukesha, Governor Scott Walker signed two bills into law, Assembly Bill 310 and Senate Bill 238. Assembly Bill 310 redirects federal Title X funds away from organizations that provide abortions and to other qualified health centers in the state. For the last 35 years, Planned Parenthood of Wisconsin has been the sole recipient of this money.

In response to strong outrage elicited by the recent undercover sting videos showing Planned Parenthood officials discussing the sale of body parts from aborted children and the gruesome dissection of children in Planned Parenthood laboratories, Wisconsin’s pro-life champion Rep. André Jacque (R-De Pere) authored three new bills that ban the sale/transfer of baby body parts AND defund Planned Parenthood.
