To prove it, let's see how women deal with losing access to Planned Parenthood. I really think Walker firmly believes that no one should really be dependent on health care. Some people never go to a doctor anyway, right? Some hate to go.
Today Planned Parenthood of Wisconsin announced the closure of four family planning health centers in Shawano, Chippewa Falls, Johnson Creek and Beaver Dam between April and July of this year. These closures are a direct consequence of the Legislature’s elimination of funding benefiting patients at Planned Parenthood in the last budget cycle. These unfortunate health center closures will result in the disruption and a loss of over 11,400 health care services for approximately 2,000 patients
Governor Walker ended state funding for 12,000 women who receive health care at Planned Parenthood. This coupled with the Governor’s recent rejection of federal funds and the resulting drastic rollback of BadgerCare coverage will increase the amount of women who do not have access to health care. These politically motivated actions will have a significant impact on women seeking affordable health care.
