Republican lawmakers in Wisconsin were set to meet in a session with Gov. Tony Evers over repealing the state’s abortion ban.
The legislators were poised to quickly adjourn, taking no action on the matter.
Evers called the session to repeal the ban earlier this month, but Wisconsin GOP members said the move was no more than a political stunt.
“Every single Wisconsinite should have the right to consult their family, their faith and their doctor to make a reproductive healthcare decision that is right for them. And every single Wisconsinite should be able to make that deeply personal decision without interference from politicians who don’t know anything about their life circumstances, values, or responsibilities,” Evers said in a statement. “We cannot allow our kids and grandkids to grow up in a world where they have fewer rights than we did growing up. That’s not the future we’ve promised them. And it’s not the future they deserve.”
