WI pro-lifers watch state warm to abortion giant

Planned Parenthood signAfter years as a pro-life state, Wisconsin's new governor is moving rapidly to a closer partnership with abortion giant Planned Parenthood.

Wisconsin's former governor Scott Walker signed legislation that reduced taxpayers' dollars that flow to the mega-abortion provider but the new pro-abortion governor, Tony Evers, is reversing that.

Evers has nominated Andrea Palm to head the state health department but Wisconsin Right to Life, aware of the dramatic change, has questions.

WRL executive director Heather Weininger tells OneNewsNow that Palm is qualified for the job but one concern is her connection to Washington, D.C.

"So we'd bring the swamp right here into our state government," she says.

A second concern for Wisconsin pro-lifers is Nicole Safar, a state health department executive hired by Palm who is a veteran Planned Parenthood lobbyist.

Wisconsin's pro-abortion governor will soon announce plans to restore family planning funding to Planned Parenthood, which performs a sizeable number of the state's abortions.

"We are so opposed to this," Weininger says. "There are so many other opportunities in our state for women to receive real health care for babies to be born alive so all babies can be healthy, and that is our ultimate goal here in the state."

Wisconsin Right to Life hopes the appointment of Palm doesn't make it out of committee but the organization is asking people to contact senators to vote no just in case it does.
