In one of the least surprising moves ever, Planned Parenthood Advocates of Wisconsin (PPAWI) is joining the Recall Walker campaign in Wisconsin. According to PPAWI, support of the recall stems from Walker’s “continued and unprecedented attack on Wisconsin’s women and families.”
Calling Governor Walker’s conduct “relentless and reckless,” PPAWI Executive Director Tanya Atkinson states: “Never before have we seen a governor act so quickly and against the wants and priorities of Wisconsin to restrict such a wide range of women’s health care services. We have seen a year full of unprecedented attacks against common sense public health policies that benefit the women and families of Wisconsin.”
Atkinson fails to acknowledge that the reason Planned Parenthood’s funding has been cut is because of its abortion activities. Planned Parenthood of Wisconsin operates three of Wisconsin’s five abortion clinics and performed 62% of Wisconsin abortions in 2010. Yet, PPWI insists that the taxpayer continue to pour dollars into its operations which serve as a base for its lucrative abortion services. Not interested in the truth, PPWI also claims that a bill to allow Wisconsin to opt-out of taxpayer-funded abortion coverage under Obamacare is a bill “to ban private insurance coverage of abortion.”
“…we have seen a relentless wave of ideologically directed attacks to reduce women’s access to essential reproductive health care services. We must act now to preserve what remains of women’s health care access and the health and well-being of our communities,” concludes Atkinson.
With the sky falling in Wisconsin, according to PPWI, no wonder the organization is all-in to recall our strongly right-to-life Governor.
