APPLETON, Wis. — Yesterday, Kris Alfheim, a candidate running for the 18th State Senate District, hosted a roundtable with community members, medical professionals, and elected officials on the status of reproductive health care and abortion access in Wisconsin.

Democratic candidate Kris Alfheim released the following statement:

“Two years ago, an extremist Supreme Court upended abortion access for and denied bodily autonomy to millions of Americans. While abortion access was restored in Wisconsin, it is far from safe with conservative lawmakers repeated attempts to undermine reproductive freedom in our state. I firmly believe that abortion care is health care and it remains a right that must constantly be defended.

Megan Cartier, an OBGYN Nurse, shared the following statement regarding the Dobbs decision:

“This decision has far-reaching implications for all community members. I’ve seen firsthand the negative impact women have experienced when they no longer have the ability to make a decision about their body and their pregnancy. We know that pregnancy can be complicated, and women and their doctors need to be able to make an informed decision based on the unique needs of each individual’s circumstances. Moving forward, I hope Wisconsin moves toward the right side of this issue and protects the rights of women and their bodily autonomy.”
