Tom Tiffany on Abortion

 

 


No taxpayer dollars should fund abortions

As the dad of three daughters, Tom has seen the miracle of life firsthand. He is proud to be pro-life and to support President Trump as he works to protect the unborn. A proven fighter for life, Tom has defunded Planned Parenthood at the state level and will work in Congress, so no taxpayers' dollars go to support abortions.

Tell patients that medication abortions can be reversed

AB180: Relating to: informed consent regarding abortion-inducing drugs.

Summary by Rewire News Group:AB 180 would require certain information regarding induced abortions, and an abortion-inducing drug regimen to be provided to a pregnant person seeking a medication abortion. The bill would require physicians to inform their patients that it might be possible to reverse the effects of a medication abortion.

Veto Message: I am vetoing this bill in its entirety because I object to the political interference between patients and their healthcare providers, especially this bill's requirement that physicians inform their patients of a medical alternative that is not evidence-based. Politicians should not require medical providers to inform patients of inaccurate and misleading information.

Legislative Outcome: Passed Assembly 62-35-2 on 5/15/19; Passed Senate 19-13-1 on 6/5/19; Sen. Tiffany co-sponsored and voted YES; Vetoed by Gov. Evers on 6/21/19.

Ban abortion except for life of mother after 20 weeks

SB179: An Act requiring a determination of probable postfertilization age of an unborn child before abortion, prohibiting abortion of an unborn child considered capable of experiencing pain, informed consent, abortion reporting, and providing a criminal penalty.

Analysis by Politico.com (7/20/15)Abortion after 20 weeks is now illegal in Wisconsin--with no exceptions for rape or incest. The legislation makes performing an abortion a felony punishable by up to three and a half years in prison and $10,000 in fines. The only way abortions after 20 weeks are allowed is if the mother is likely to die or be severely injured. Anti-abortion activists have coalesced around 20 weeks because, they say, that's when fetuses begin to feel pain.

Legislative Outcome:Passed Senate 19-14-0 on Jun/9/15; State Sen. Tom Tiffany voted YES; Passed Assembly 61-34-2 on Jul/8/15; Signed by Governor Scott Walker on Jul/20/15.

Pro-life, according to PVS survey.

Tiffany opposes the PVS survey question on abortion rights

Project Vote Smart inferred whether candidates agree or disagree with the statement, 'Abortion: Do you generally support pro-choice or pro-life legislation?' PVS self-description: "The Political Courage Test provides voters with positions on key issues. Historically, candidates have failed to complete our test due to the advice they receive from their advisors and out of fear of negative attack ads."
