Scott Walker has put women’s health and safety at risk
Madison, WI – Tanya Atkinson, Executive Director for Planned Parenthood Advocates of
Wisconsin, (PPAWI) the advocacy arm of PPWI, issued the following statement regarding Scott
Walker’s record of taking away essential and even life saving health care from thousands of
women during his term as Governor.

underscore this simple fact: he cannot be trusted when it comes to protecting women’s health
and safety. In fact, Scott Walker has devastated women’s health, safety and financial security
by forcing the shut-down of Planned Parenthood health centers that provided preventive health
care, including cancer screenings, birth control and well-women exams, and threatening the
availability of safe, legal abortion services for women.
