Vukmir And Nicholson Support Trump Limits to Women's Healthcare Access

MADISON -- The Trump Administration is waging war on women's healthcare access by rolling back the federal mandate for employers to provide workers with coverage for birth control -- a dangerous move that will threaten birth control access for hundreds of thousands of women across the country.

"Shame on Leah Vukmir, whose far-right extreme views are on full display as she cheers the Trump Administration for slamming the door on hundreds of thousands of American women's access to birth control. And doubly so on Kevin Nicholson, whose disqualifying silence on Trump's move speaks even greater volumes," said Democratic Party of Wisconsin Chair Martha Laning. "Wisconsin women deserve a champion in the U.S. Senate -- someone like Tammy Baldwin, who stands up for and protects their access to a full range of healthcare options -- and it's now clear that neither Leah Vukmir nor Kevin Nicholson fit that bill."
