On Wednesday afternoon, the Republican-majority Wisconsin legislature quickly rejected a special legislative session called by Governor Tony Evers in regards to overturning the state’s abortion law.
According to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel , both the Senate and Assembly meetings regarding the law lasted under 30 seconds, with the Republican majority quickly gaveling out of both sessions. Evers called for the special session earlier this month following the leaked Supreme Court draft decision that indicated a majority of the justices would overturn Roe v. Wade .
Wisconsin’s abortion law, which was implemented in 1849, will go into effect in the event that Roe is overturned.
While the state’s law would go after doctors or providers that assist women in getting abortions, it does not expressly punish women who perform their own abortions, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel .

They’re Trying to Shut Us Down
Over the last several months, I’ve lost count of how many times the powers-that-be have tried to shut us down. They’ve sent hackers at us, forcing us to take extreme measures on web security. They sent attorneys after us, but thankfully we’re not easily intimidated by baseless accusations or threats. They’ve even gone so far as to make physical threats. Those can actually be a bit worrisome but Remington has me covered.
For us to continue to deliver the truth that Americans need to read and hear, we ask you, our amazing audience, for financial assistance. We just launched a GiveSendGo page to help us pay the bills. It’s brand new so don’t be discouraged by the lack of donations there. It’s a funny reality that the fewer the donations that have been made, the less likely people are willing to donate to it. One would think this is counterintuitive, but sometimes people are skeptical because they think that perhaps there’s a reason others haven’t been donating. In our situation, we’re just getting started so please don’t be shy if you have the means to help.
Thank you and God bless!
