Guests: Kelda Roys, Mark Jacob, Dan Schumacher

It was on March 31, 1849 that Wisconsin Gov. Nelson Dewey signed a law banning abortion. State Sen. Kelda Roys will outline the legislation introduced by Democrats that would restore women’s healthcare rights and undo the damage brought by right-wing US Supreme Court justices when they repealed Roe v. Wade, allowing the 1849 ban to again take effect.
