History is made at Life's Connection with a visit from Governor Scott Walker!
Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker picked a perfect setting to sign his state’s legislation defunding Planned Parenthood and redirecting $3.5 million to community health providers Thursday morning in Waukesha.
Just 400 feet away from one of the Planned Parenthood sites that will no longer rely on state taxpayers’ hard-earned dollars, the governor cut off funding to the abortion giant at Life’s Connection, a community supported pregnancy center.
While Life’s Connection, a pro-life pregnancy help medical clinic, is not a recipient of the newly revamped funding, the organization’s executive director, Krys Crawley, hailed the change as a major step forward for women in the state.
“Women and taxpayers in our state deserve better than abortion,” Crawley said. “This legislation has been crafted with the best interests of women in mind. Now, instead of our hard-earned tax dollars paying for abortion, we will be funding crucial services like breast cancer screenings, preventative care and mammograms—which Planned Parenthood does not provide.”
Gov. Walker’s signature on AB 310 and SB 238 was the final step in the state’s process of re-routing $3.5 million in Title X funding to 96 federally qualified community health clinics throughout the state.
His ratification also means Wisconsin is off the hook for $4.5 million by doing away with Planned Parenthood of Wisconsin’s artificially inflated Medicaid reimbursement rates.
A crowd of 50 came to see the historic signing of the legislation, which included seven members of the Wisconsin State Legislature, members of the media, representatives from Wisconsin Right to Life, and the board of Life’s Connections.
“It is truly astonishing that we have been given the opportunity to host Governor Walker and hope this will be a chance to share our mission with others," Crawley said. “We are just all reeling. It’s such an honor to be part of history.”
