Wisconsin Right to Life Executive Director Heather Weininger is already seeing signs that Governor-elect Tony Evers will be just as pro-abortion in his administration appointments as he was on the campaign trail.
Weininger is calling on Evers to rescind an appointment given to the President and CEO of Planned Parenthood in Wisconsin, Tonya Atkinson, to Evers’ Health Policy Advisory Council.
“It certainly didn’t take long for Governor-elect Evers to put into motion what we feared before election day,” stated Weininger. “Evers made it very clear to us during his campaign how he felt about abortions, it’s just like a tonsillectomy. Now he has placed on a health policy advisory council the President and CEO of Planned Parenthood in Wisconsin.”
Weininger said Atkinson should be removed from the Council because providing abortions is not providing health care. “It doesn’t take a medical degree to know that killing an unborn baby is not healthcare,” Weininger said. “I’m calling on Governor-elect Evers to immediately remove Tonya Atkinson from his Health Policy Advisory Council.”
