Governor Walker Signs Bills Defunding Planned Parenthood of Wisconsin of $8 Million



Governor Walker signed two pro-life bills into law last Thursday that, together, are expected to eliminate approximately $8 million in public funding from Planned Parenthood of Wisconsin (PPWI), the state’s largest abortion provider. It was fitting that the Governor signed these bills at a pro-life pregnancy resource center, Life’s Connection, a model of true women’s health care that heals and gives hope to mother and child.

Pro-Life Wisconsin is grateful to Governor Walker for signing into law legislation that respects the consciences of Wisconsin taxpayers who oppose public funding of abortion. Government must not force us to participate in the killing of our preborn brothers and sisters with our federal and state tax dollars.

We thank Assembly Speaker Robin Vos and Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald for scheduling AB 310 and SB 238 and Assembly and Senate Republicans for passing them. We especially thank bill authors Representative Andre Jacque and Senator Chris Kapenga for their intelligent and committed leadership on this critical legislation.

Assembly Bill 310, signed into law as Act 151, redirects federal Title X family planning funds away from organizations that perform abortions to public entities including state, county, and local health departments and clinics. This will eliminate $3.5 million from PPWI. Senate Bill 238, signed into law as Act 152, reduces PPWI’s Medicaid reimbursement rate for contraceptive drugs, requiring that PPWI be reimbursed the actual cost they pay for these drugs and not the artificially inflated rate they are currently receiving. This will eliminate $4.5 million from PPWI.
